Nigerian sensational singer, ‘Teni the entertainer’ is clearly one of the best talents in the Nigerian music industry currently. The talented singer recently featured on Vogue Magazine, one of the most prestigious magazine in the world where she opened out on several things.
In the feature, speaking with Fashion News director, Chioma Nnadi, she spoke about her originality, living life without limits, Her musical and personal influence and redefining the definition of being a woman.
On her newest single ‘Sugar Mummy’, Teni said:
“ I want to make ‘Sugar Mummy’ a positive term,” she says in hushed tones that belie her rambunctious alter ego. “She is a woman with swag, who looks good, who is proud to be different.”
Speaking about feminism and originality, she said:
“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. 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,” she says. “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”
