Niniola Net worth

So how much is the Queen of Afro-House Music really worth? Well, industry sources estimate that our very own Niniola is worth about $1.4 million (equivalent to about ₦571 million going by the current $/₦ exchange rate). I know some might have big questions as to how she could amass that much wealth when she is not Tiwa Savage or Yemi Alade. With such a large net worth, she deserves a position in the list of the richest singers in Nigeria.
