NINIOLA FT FEMI KUTI – FANTASY
Niniola teams with music icon Femi Kuti on her new single tiled Fantasy. She starts off the year with this classic fresh off her Grammy nominated contribution to Beyonce’s The Lion King: The Gift album with cosigns from Timbaland and Drake.
On this song, Niniola’s seductive vocal notes paired with the irreproducible saxophone sound of Femi Kuti, a four-time Grammy Awards nominee. Niniola describes the collaboration with Femi Kuti, son of late Fela Kuti, as a dream come true. “Femi is a legend in every sense of the word, “We got into the studio, and he gave us more than we could have wanted” .
The forthcoming visual for “Fantasy”, produced by Kel-P, was shot at “The New Afrika Shrine” (Lagos). This offers an early taste of Niniola’s upcoming sophomore album set to drop later this year. The album will be released via Drumroll Records, Naija Review and AWAL, Kobalt’s unique alternative to the traditional music label.
NINIOLA is one of the most successful and acclaimed female artists in African music. Hits like “Maradona,” “Designer” and “Boda Sodiq” have won her glowing endorsements from Drake and Timbaland; none other than Beyoncé looked to “Maradona” for inspiration when crafting “Find Your Way Back” from 2019’s The Lion King: The Gift. An all-around entertainer who writes all of her own lyrics and incorporates choreography into each of her videos and performances.
