Niniola Apata, a Nigerian Afro-house vocalist, has come through with ‘Colours and Sounds’, her sophomore album.
The Ekiti-born award-winning singer took to her social media platforms on Friday to announce the release of the project to her numerous fans.
The 15-track body of work features songs like ‘Night & Day’, ‘Innocent (Fagbo)’, ‘So Serious’, ‘Addicted’, ‘Look Like Me’, ‘Boda Sodiq’, ‘Oh Sharp’, ‘Skit’, and ‘Fire’.
Others are ‘My Body’, ‘Fantasy‘, ‘Designer’, ‘Omo Rapala’, ‘Bana’ and ‘Addicted (extended version)’.
In the album, the 33-year-old songstress enlisted music heavyweights like Timbaland, US singer; Nonso Amadi, Canadian-based Afro-R&B, Soul singer from Nigeria; Sauti Sol, Kenyan Afropop group; Busiswa, South African singer and poet; Afro B, British DJ; and Nigeria’s Femi Kuti and Sarz.

“From Afro-house to Afro-fusion, Amapiano and R&B, Niniola can do it all. The Nigerian singer deftly navigates a spectrum of sounds, her distinctive vocals bending and soaring equally over house samples and Afrobeats,” read the album editors’ note.
Niniola has carved a niche for herself in the music industry, portraying African aesthetics in several of her visuals.
She had once caused a buzz beyond the shores of Africa after ‘Maradona’, her hit song, was requested on radio by Drake, a Canadian rapper and record producer.
