The "Queen of Afro-house" is back with a fun, Lagos-shot music video.
The upbeat song, produced by popular afrobeats beatmaker Sarz, highlights the singer's smooth vocals as she harmonizes over dance-worthy production.
The colorful music video sees the singer donning several bold outfits, including a dramatic gele and sequined look as she delivers animated performances in various settings in Lagos, including a hair salon, the local village, and eventually at a lively party.
The music video was directed by Adasa Cookey, and according to a description on the artist's YouTube page, "shows off The Agbaakin Abobagunwa of Yorubaland Obesere," a popular fuji musician "who's been dubbed the original 'Omo Rapala' on the streets, endorsing and blessing Niniola with his appearance."
Last summer the artist released the infectious single "Boda Sodiq," and she released the song "Designer" before then. OkayAfrica sat down for an interview with Niniola in July, in which she discussed Afro-house, receiving major co-signs from both Drake and Timbaland, and the success of her previous major hits "Bana" and "Maradona." Revisit the interview here.
