Popular singer, Teniola Apata, aka Teni Entertainer, has been fairly consistent in dishing out hit tracks to her teeming fans. The choruses of a number of her songs have taken on lives of their own and become catchphrases for many. The singer has also worked with many artistes but she revealed that there was one person she would really love to work with.
In an interview, she said, “King Sunny Ade is that veteran musician I would love to work with. I would really love to work with him because he is a legend.”
For fans of Teni who had been waiting for an album from her, she explained why it took her two years to complete her new album titled, ‘Wondaland’. She said, “This album has been two years in the making and it was made in seven cities across the world. Music does not stop and inspiration can come at anytime and anywhere. The weirdest place I have got inspiration for a song is in the bathroom. The song is in the new album too. I had heard the producer playing the music and the idea just came to me because the rhythm was so nice.
“We recorded in London (United Kingdom), New York (United States of America), Orlando (USA), Dubai (United Arab Emirates), Ondo, Lagos and Abuja. I finished the album during the COVID-19 lockdown. I would say it is a labour of love meant to take the listeners through a rollercoaster of emotions from the first track to the last. I want to see old and young people shed a tear, laugh, dance, relate and see themselves in the songs and the videos to come. I just want to welcome the fans to my wonderland.”
Sharing her hopes for 2021, Teni said she wanted the world to be a happy place without COVID-19.
“I just want the world to be a happy place again with no COVID-19. I would also advise my colleagues to stay creative and hopeful. I am very optimistic that things will get better,” she said.
The award-winning singer also stated that she was grateful for how far she had come in her career. She added, “I am more than grateful. It is not every day one sees people shower one with so much love and support. I thank God, my team, my record label, my family and the fans for everything they have done.”
