It is awesome when children follow the footsteps of their parents..this is a very common scenario in the Nigerian entertainment scene and one of such people is Queen Salawa Abeni's daughter, Okikiola (otherwise known as Candy Fabulous)...she is 30 years old

Okiki is set to start her own music reality show,‘Opolo Orin.’ The reality show, we gather is on the bid to be the very first ever indigenous Yoruba reality based singing competition.
Opolo Orin will showcase talent in alternative Nigerian music genres like Waka, Fuji, Juju and Apala.

Okikiola who runs Candiva Signature, an entertainment company spoke the reality show, she said: ”I saw an audition from Project Fame Ibadan, and an old man didn’t make the cut because he sang in Yoruba language, and honestly he was very talented, and that gave me this idea, so I started working on it.’ She informs it would  feature Dele Abiodun, KWAM 1, 9ice, Laolu Akins, King Sunny Ade, Sir Shina Peters as judges and guest judges.

This is a good legacy in the life of Okikiola and i must say, it is worth it and surely, it is worthy of emulation...so please watch out for a yoruba version of the popular project fame...
