Niniola releases sophomore album, ‘Colors and Sounds’

Released through her own Drumroll Records imprint and Naija Review, Nigeria’s Queen of Afro-house music, Niniola (Niniola Apata) has premiered her sophomore album titled “Colours and Sounds”, a project co-produced by musical genius Timbaland, Sarz ( a long time contributor of Niniola’s), Nigerian beatmakers Kel-P and Nonso Amadi, Jamaica’s Teflon Zincfence and Shuffle Muzik, hailing from South Africa.

The Nigerian singer deftly navigates a spectrum of sounds, her distinctive vocals bending and soaring equally over house samples and Afrobeats. The 13-track offering is a vibrant tapestry of global influences, and includes collaborations with US super-producer Timbaland, South African singer and poet Busiswa, Kenyan Afropop group Sauti Sol, British DJ Afro B and more—each of whom adds their signature Colours and Sounds.
