Beyonce wanted to bring her project much closer to the African culture — much more than she had been doing for a while now — which made her decide to bring on the very best artistes from Africa, mostly Nigeria on the “Lion King: The Gift” album.
The album featured notable African artistes like Wizkid on “Brown Skin Girl“, Tekno Miles, Yemi Alade & Mr Eazi on “Don’t Jealous Me“, Burna Boy on “Ja Ara E“, Tiwa Savage on “Keys To The Kingdom“, Shatta Wale on “Already“, etc.
One thing most people, especially Nigerians, didn’t know is that Niniola also worked on the project though not as a featured artiste like the afore-listed acts, but has a contributor on one of the tracks.
The 33-year-old born Niniola Apata, is recognized as one of the writers of “Find Your Way Back” tracked in the album having used elements from her hit single “Maradona”
