Niniola is set to release her sophomore album, ‘Colors and Sounds’ in October 2, 2020 which will be a follow-up to her debut album, ‘This is Me’ which was released in 2017.
The producers include music icon and Verzuz co-founder, Timbaland; Niniola’s long-time collaborator Sarz, fellow Nigerian beatmakers Kel-P and Nonso Amadi; Jamaica’s Teflon Zincfence; and South Africa’s Shuffle Muzik. U.K. Afrowave boss Afro B adds his voice to ‘My Body,’ while South African singer Busiswa brings some flavor to the hypnotic ‘Oh Sharp’.
Nigerian music icon Femi Kuti, son of the great Fela, introduces his unique sax tones on the Afrobeat-inspired ‘Fantasy,’ and Kenyan trio Sauti
Sol bring a mix of reggae and afropop vibes to the sunny, Kel P-produced ‘So Serious.’
Notwithstanding the mixture of musical tastes, NINIOLA’s performance is singular as she brings her A-game to each of the album’s 13 tracks. “My music is colourful and vibrant — it has traveled across borders and it’s being played by different ethnicities, whether black or white,” NINIOLA 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.’
