I felt like a robot after my mum’s death – Niyola

Singer Niyola

Singer, Niyola, has opened up about how she felt about the death of her mother in 2017.

The 34-year-old whose real name is Eniola Akinbo, described her feelings in a post she shared on Twitter on Monday.

“I took a trip to some island right after my mum passed and I seemed fine, didn’t breakdown. I was numb and like a robot cos I didn’t feel anything, and it was like that for a while until I wrote a song about it. I still break into tears randomly till today!” she tweeted.

The ‘Toh Bad’ singer took a break from music after the death of her mother and sister in 2017.

She explained her reasons for doing so in a March 2019 interview with Classic FM.

“I was in that phase where I just felt like I don’t think I am really portraying what I wanted to portray as an artist. If you went to listen to my songs, will you catch the slightest glimpse of who I am as Niyola? that has always bothered me.” she said.
