Who is Niki Tall?

Niki Tall, my stage name came from Nicholas as in Niki and Tall came from
the fact that I am the tall, even the tallest in my family. I am half Greek
and German, my dad is from Greece, while my Mother is German.

I come from a
musically oriented family, so doing music was always there, thanks to
the Nigerian DJ’s and some of my friends who brushed me in the Nigerian
way. Back then I had a Nigerian girlfriend, so Nigeria is my adopted
country. One thing most people don’t know is that i do have my job asides
being a DJ, artist and producer, am a chemical technician in Germany
visit here, you know this is where it’s happening and i have to relate
with my fans right here. I would definitely come again but can’t say when.
i said earlier I don fall in love with Nija babe tey tey, she was the
one who helped polish my pidgin and even helped in speaking little
Yoruba, so i got love for Nigerian girls. Although Marriage
is not on my mind now, but I can marry a Nigerian girl. I once dated a Nigerian girl, and if i could date her, why can’t i marry a Nigerian girl?
ideal woman is one who takes me just as i am and not the Niki Tall i
am. She has got to be beautiful, fun loving and homely. She must be truthful most
especially and should be able to do me Nigerian delicacy too.

music like fine wine.
thing you should know is that music is a global language, the only
difference is the native language that music is being conveyed in.
German language is what I am used to but the pidgin language or yoruba
fascinates me more, especially the Afro pop genre which you hardly find
in Germany except by a Nigerian.
