This Is Me

Singer/songwriter Niniola Apata—Niniola to her fans—has become a full-on Afro-house sensation since competing in Project Fame West Africa in 2013. Those performances would prove a landmark for Niniola’s stratospheric ascent to fame, helping her launch a solo career that culminates in the release of her debut full-length, This Is Me. Bouncing between English and Ekiti Yoruba, her vocals are direct and indie pop-inflected, couched in the syncopated percussion and harmonically complex background vocals of her native Nigeria. Award-winning Afrobeats producers including Sarz and Johnny Drille add their commercial touch to singles like "Maradona" and "Moyo" respectively, while the irresistibly inviting "Hold Me" gets a flash of style from dancehall royalty Patoranking.
