Teni the Entertainer has always given us great vibes. The singer, who is also Niniola’s sister, is a well recognized singer in the country, and she is particularly credited for her unique style and the manner in which she carries her listeners along. ‘Uyo Meyo’ was and still is a wonderful hit that listeners greatly appreciate due to the emotions it emits.
Teni doesn’t only make lovely music for her listeners; she also posts funny videos on Instagram to engage people on her social media platforms; however, many fans say that some of these videos and not funny.
Meanwhile, her ‘Sugar Mummy’ visuals make her the area mama. Teni wants to recreate the term ‘Sugar Mummy’, and put it to good use, rather than the negative vibes it gets.
About ‘Sugar Mummy’, the singer says in a Vogue interview with Chioma Nnadi:
“I want to make ‘Sugar Mummy’ a positive term. She is a woman with swag, who looks good, who is proud to be different.” It’s that pride, that refusal to conform that has set Teni in a different lane to her peers. Pushing against the sexy narrative and choosing to be unapologetically herself, Teni has already redefined what it means to be a woman and marched to the beat of her own drum.
Teni continues, “There’s an assumption that women have to look a certain way to be feminine, but I don’t want to conform to that stereotype,” she says. “My thing is this: You don’t get to decide how I choose to live my life. I’m being me—respect that. UGA, the university I went to, was mostly PWI—that’s short for a predominantly white institution. I remember someone even asked me if I had elephants in my backyard, it was wild. The other students would look at me crazy when I showed up to class in traditional dress, too. But you know that’s who I am. That’s my culture. If you can wear your blue jeans, I can wear this.”
