On New Single, Niyola Pays Homage to Her Late Parents

Published

on

Niyola has something to say. Long regarded as one of the most soulful artists operating in the Nigerian music industry, the one-time EME signee has maintained an ephemeral presence despite putting out little material as the years have gone by. After a three-year absence from the ever-churning labyrinth of the Nigerian music industry, the singer is back with another artistic message of substance and self-introspection.

Her latest single, titled “Olúmorántí,” is part memoir and reflection on loss. Named after her late father, “Olúmorántí” sees Niyola document the tough process of dealing with his death and that of her mom as she tunnels in on feelings of hurt, anger, and frustration. Co-written with British- Nigerian singer, Moelogo, the deft interchange of Yoruba and English used to express her feelings lend depth to Niyola’s message.

On her comeback single, there’s no rustiness evident in Niyola’s powerful voice as she easily glides over the sanguine beat while maintaining her pensive grace. In another sequence of singing comes acceptance as Niyola’s overall mood segues into expectations for the future without her loved ones.
