Except I Die, Music Is The Only Thing That Can Make Me Happy” – Teni Reveals
Teni Apata, popularly known as #Teni The Entertainer, says there is no pressure on her to release a debut album.
Despite releasing a string of hit songs in 2018, Teni says her focus is to create more “good music and have fun”. Speaking about her decision to take up song-making as a career, she described it as the “easiest thing” to do.
“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,” she said.
Teni, who is a sibling of Afro-house singer Niniola Apata, said she is her sister’s biggest fan.
She disclosed that Niniola 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.
