Nigerian singer and songwriter Niniola just bought JAMB forms for 30 students, a gesture being carried out through her foundation “Adopt A Child’s Education”.
According to Niniola, buying JAMB Forms for 30 students was her way of `stepping into her late father’s shoes, a man who was known for his advocacy for standard education for every child’.
The elder sister to youth sensation Teni Entertainer who rose to stardom after finishing as the third runner-up in the sixth season of Project Fame West Africa and became more popular with her songs, “Ibadi” and “Maradonna”, wrote on Instagram;
I promised to do more and Walk in my Late Dads shoes…

At high school Niniola participated in several social activities and competitions. She competed in Season 6 of Project Fame West Africa where she placed 3rd Runner-Up. During the competition, she performed a live rendition of “Limpopo” with Kcee and also performed her composition “Itura” which was produced by Cobhams Asuquo. She cites Dolly Parton, Whitney Houston, Celine Dion, The Cranberries, Madonna, Beyonce and Angelique Kidjo as her music influences.
Niniola describes her style of music as “Afro-House”, a blend of afrobeat and house music. Niniola lyrics are mostly in her dialect – Yoruba language as she explained in an online interview with Gbolahan Adeyemi of TalkGlitz Media saying she loves her culture and the language makes her song delivery beautiful.
In July 2018, internationally renowned DJ Snake teamed up with Niniola for a hit single titled “Maradona Riddim” based heavily on her 2017 hit song “Maradona”.
