Teni Becomes The First African Female To Be Named Youtube’s ‘Artist On The Rise’


For your endless scrolling enjoyment follow us on Instagram & Facebook!

The year 2019 is already looking good for Teniola Apata, popularly called Teni Entertainer, as she has been named as YouTube’s ‘Artist On The Rise’.  Teni will be the first Africa female to be listed in this category.

The ‘Artist On The Rise’ features was introduced by YouTube in 2018 as a platform where it spotlights new artistes in various trending tabs.

Teni attained the feat with her hit single ‘Case’ which has had over four million views since its release. By virtue of this recognition, YouTube would promote Teni’s videos on its US trending page, in social media ads and fan event appearances at YouTube Spaces.

She was awarded the Headies’ Rookie of the Year in 2017, and also won the Soundcity MVP Award for ‘Best New Artist’.

This achievement couldn’t have come at a better time for Teni who just kicked off her world tour. So, having her music pushed globally by YouTube will further promote her during this important time in her career.

Below is Teni’s reaction to the news
