Revealed: 'If I refused to stand up, I would come off as being arrogant and badly behaved' - Niniola blames the organisers for her poor performance at the Headies

Last night, Niniola had perhaps the most uncordinated, drab and obviously unrehearsed perfomance at the 12 Headies awards in Lagos.

Everything was off, from her outfit, to the chewing gum in her mouth to mis-steps with the dancers. The singer has now come out to explain and blames the organisers for throwing her under the bus without prior notice.

According to Niniola, 'If I refused to stand up and respond to the announcement, I would come off as being arrogant and badly behaved (most likely comments would be made about how little fame and success have gotten to my head) since everyone knew I was in the hall'.

While on my sit in the hall, I had been chewing gum to keep me awake as I really exhausted from my prior performance and flight and I had not been able to sleep. #Headies2018

In my rush to respond to the unexpect announcement, I totally forgot I had t gum in my mouth and got on stage. I could not spit it out anymore and I thought I’d be able to pull off a performance with it in my mouth. #Headies2018
