‘I Had Flown In From Owerri And Not Rehearsed For The Performance At All’ – Niniola Explains Headies Awards Flop
As the 2019 Headies Awards have come and gone, one of the highlights of the Awards program, albeit a bad one, was the below-par performance by top female musician, Niniola.
However, by way of apologising to the many disappointed fans, the singer has come out to state the reasons she had such a performance.
Stating that she had flown into Lagos from Owerri the night before the event and had not had enough time to rehearse with the band or even her own performance, Niniola profusely apologised to her fans.
As confirmed by NIGERIA NEWS, the singer took to her personal Twitter page to write the following: “I honestly was not going to address this issue but I was very firmly convinced within me that I owed each and every one of you a detailed explanation on why I had a performance that was far below the usual expectation of my performances.
“I had flown in from Owerri after a performance yesterday (the evening of the Headies), to grace the Award event that has served as a platform for us as entertainers and I, unfortunately, could not rehearse with the Band or even work on any performance set for the Show.
“I am thankful to everyone that messaged and called to inquire about my performance at the Headies Awards. It shows a clear understanding of the typical nature of my stagecraft.
“I promptly informed the organizers that I would not be performing as I am very particular about my Brand and the performance delivery I give to my friends and supporters that have helped my career to the point that it is today.”
Niniola performed on stage at the 12th edition of Headies alongside Davido, Tiwa Savage, Danfo Drivers, Johnny Drille and others.
