In a recent interview, Nigeria singer, Teni Apata aka Teni The Entertainer, who is presently on a tour of 20 has stated that her focus is to create more “good music and have fun”.
Speaking about her decision to take up song-making as a career, she said;
“Except I die, that (music) is the only thing that can make me happy. That is the easiest thing I do, any other thing I do, I will be working hard. Music is something you can wake me up and I can do it. It is a gift,”
Going further, Teni stated that her elder sister, singer Niniola Apata motivated her to run her music career independently.
“Nini told me from day one, go and do your own thing. And to me, that has been the most liberating thing, doing my own thing, in my own way,” she said.
Teni said she was disappointed when Niniola emerged third runner-up during the sixth season of Project Fame West Africa in 2013.
Also. Teni listed Seyi Shay, Simi, Tiwa Savage, Yemi Alade and Bisola Aiyeola as some of the female musicians she looks forward to collaborating with.
