10. Niniola – Maradona
Artiste: Niniola Apata
Song: Maradona (Prod. by Sarz)
Release: March, 2017
Video Director: Mex
Niniola has been around for a minute and she’s gotten to the stage where everyone respects her craft and generally wants her to do great things. She has however not been disappointing especially this year with the release of her scintillating single Maradona.
On this Song, Nini tells a story of player after her heart whom at one point had her believe he was legit. With some soothing vocals, song writing and interesting story telling, Nini as a result has this HIT song in Maradona.
Maradona strikes the general feminine public with a very familiar story line which is a major reason for its success (ask Yemi Alade and Johnny). It has attracted over 132,000 downloads so far and over a million views on YouTube, Niniola makes it into our top 10 list deservedly at No. 10.
