Nigerian songwriter and singer Niniola Apata who is famous for her energetic dance moves seem to have many things weaved into one.
In a recent interview with the 32-year-old musician, she revealed how her obsession for music ended her teaching profession.
“Before embracing music I worked as a teacher for a while. I taught during my teaching practice at Clegg Girls Secondary School, Lagos and which I had fun with the girls before going to my dad’s school where I became a supervisor for a couple of years before music eventually took hold of me,” she said.
The “Ibadi” coroner who studied in her father’s school also revealed how her parents were against her decisions moving into the music industry sighting that her mother wants to keep the teaching profession circle rolling.
“Well, you know back then every parent wanted their kid to be a lawyer, engineer, banker, etc., so there was some kind of objection from my mother. But when she got to discover that I was in love with music and wasn’t backing down, she had to support me.”
The sister of Teniola the entertainer disclosed that her inspiration from the kind of music she does comes from other people’s experiences, ‘gist’ from her friends or her own experiences.
She added that though she’s in love with music her fame hasn’t robbed her of anything. “Nothing has fame robbed me off because I am still the same person and I still do anything I want to do.”
