Boredom pushed me into music – Niniola
TVC E. Nigerian Singer, Niniola Apata, has said, boredom pushed her to doing music.
The songwriter who rose to recognition in 2013 after finishing third runner-up on the sixth season of Project Fame West Africa, hails from Ekiti State.
Renowned for her electrifying display of stage energy, vocal power and stage craft, she has been able to create a world of her own in the Nigerian music industry through hardwork, resilience and consistency.
As TVC Entertainment guest today she talks on how she developed interest in music, career success so far and more.
My interest in music was as a result of boredom as a child (laughs). My parents didn’t take me out and I had to get busy, so music occupied my time. As a child, I got my repertoire of music from my parent’s records and that of my older siblings; whatever records they played I listened to. I have an endless list of musical influences; to name a few, there’s Dolly Parton, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, The Beatles, Shakira, Toni Braxton, Brandy, Beyonce, The Cranberries, Angelique Kidjo, Funmi Aragbaye, King Sunny Ade, etc.
