Niniola, who revealed that she fragmented her tooth while playing with her younger brother when she was in JSS2, opened how she felt uncomfortable with it for a long period of time in an interview with Saturday Beats.
The singer who got over the humiliation, and won’t stop smiling in most of her music videos, said;
“I chipped my tooth when I was in JSS2. I remember it was in the house and my elder brother was playing with my cousin and he was pouring water on her.
He said he also wanted to pour water on me so while I was running away from him, screaming with my mouth wide open, I fell down and saw my chipped tooth on the floor. It was on a Sunday and I had to go to school the next day. I wanted to kill myself because I did not know how I would face my schoolmates the next day.
“Coincidentally, there was a schoolmate of mine in the house who had come to see my cousin, so she explained everything that happened. I had planned that the next day I would not talk so much in school but to my surprise when I got to school, everybody was talking about my chipped tooth; that girl had gone to spread the news.
I was embarrassed and it took me a while to get used to it. My mother even told me to get it fixed but I refused and I told her I wasn’t ready”.
