Following huge universal hype around her single ‘Addicted’ this past July, multi award winning Nigerian artiste Niniola dropped her much expected album COLOURS AND SOUNDS this month.

Celebrated as the “Queen of Afro-House” over the globe and supported by international giants like Beyoncé and Drake, this Nigerian artist joins together the Continent and the African Diaspora on her latest offering COLOURS AND SOUNDS.

Incorporating influences from South Africa’s hypnotic Amapiano sound to Jamaican dancehall and components of vintage Afrobeat, the album is one of a kind in its undertaking.

The album was co-produced by musical icon and Verzuz co-founder Timbaland, Niniola’s long-time collaborator Sarz (Beyoncé, Drake) , Nigerian beatmakers Kel-P and Nonso Amadi, South African Shuffle Muzik and Teflon Zincfence (Chronixx, Koffee); from Jamaica.

U.K. Afrowave boss Afro B shows up on “My Body,” whereas South Africa’s Busiswa brings gqom flavour to the hypnotic “Oh Sharp.” Nigerian music icon Femi Kuti includes his distinctive sax tones on the Afrobeat-inspired “Fantasy,” and Kenyan quartet Sauti Sol bring a blend of reggae and Afropop vibes to the sunny, Kel P-produced “So Serious.”

With such assorted melodic flavors all through the album, NINIOLA’s vocals continuously stay particular and true as she brings her A-game to all 13 tracks.

                  “My music is colourful and vibrant — it’s travelled across borders and it’s being played by different ethnicities, whether black or white,” NINIOLA says, “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.”
