Below is an excerpt, read full interview here
Where does your creativity come from?
Teni: I like to take myself to places with my lyrics. I use the power of my mind to take myself to different places and feel different energies. For example, “Fargin” was simply freestyling. You’d never see me taking pen and paper to write a song down from scratch. I just go to the microphone and put words together.
How do you feel about how women are viewed in the industry?
Teni: The music scene for women is getting better. Women are taking charge, doing great things. The likes of Tiwa Savage, Yemi Alade, Niniola, and so on are starting to hold big concerts outside the country. It didn’t use to be like that. We just have to keep supporting one another.
Does it get competitive between you and your sister, Niniola?
It’s not competitive. She wants me to do well and succeed. I always tell her that God created her for me. I have been able to avoid a lot of mistakes by learning from her. I’m blessed to have an older sister that’s able to guide me through the industry. My sister and I just want to make music, live our lives, and be comfortable. It’s amazing having someone else in the music industry in my family. When we get in the studio, just know its madness.
