Nigerian singer Niniola has taken her listeners on a tour of Africa’s ever-evolving dance music landscape with her dynamic sophomore album, Colours and Sounds.
Celebrated as the “Queen of Afro-House” and endorsed by the likes of Beyoncé and Drake, the Nigerian singer unites the Continent and the Diaspora on Colours and Sounds, incorporating influences from South Africa’s hypnotic Amapiano sound to Jamaican dancehall and vintage Afrobeat and Kenyan's Sauti Sol bring a mix of reggae and Afropop vibes to the sunny, Kel P-produced “So Serious.”
While the musical flavors are many, Niniola’s performance is singular as she brings her A-game to all 13 tracks.
“My music is colourful and vibrant -- it’s traveled across borders and it's being played by different ethnicities, whether black or white," she said .
“Even though my root genre is Afro-House, I can do it all -— R&B, pop, folk. So I am basically a girl of many Colours and Sounds” she concluded
