Niniola Apata, better known by her stage name, ‘Niniola’, broke into limelight shortly after emerging third runner-up in the 6th edition of MTN Project Fame. She recently won the Best African Collaboration award at the last AFRIMA. She is good at what she does that she said it is impossible to give up her career for an affair.

She said about winning “I feel so blessed and elated. Best African Collaboration, not Nigerian or West African. I’m thankful to God, my East African brother, Eddy Kenzo, Naijareview, and of course the fans that voted.”

She is grateful to MTN “In as much as it gave me a great platform (of which I am forever grateful for), I won’t say it was a major reason, because I had to get a management team, release my debut single and the follow-up singles, learn a lot about the music business, etc. I had to work hard on my own to achieve my life-long dream as an entertainer; which is still an on-going process.

Then she said she can’t leave music because of love “That’s not possible! Not for anything/anybody will I quit music. I won’t be in such an unsupportive relationship in the first place.
