Many reading this would have had the same thoughts. Teni had a hand on 2018 as one of the artistes of the year. If it was a matter of hits, she was the most consistent. Only one artiste had more hits than her. Who? Burna Boy
And she got the acknowledgements and recognition. There were the wild comparisons between her and Simi. And to be truthful, she had a wonderful year than Tiwa Savage and Yemi Alade.
HAS THAT RUN ENDED?
Many expected 2019 to be a extended run from 2018. Still the same act, but now, more amplification in hype and more hits. We also expected a project in the form of EP/album.
Still, that hasn’t happened yet and the quality attributed to Teni as being a hit maker looks doubtful as she has yet to score a hit in 2019. Sugar Mummy, a comical freestyle was poorly received.
The lyrics smacked in deviation from the Teni who provided Askamaya and Power Rangers has yet to achieve commercial success. And while there she has racked up a few endorsements with TomTom and Tecno and also being nominated in the BET award, but when you look at it, Teni is has been missing from the music conversations.
WHAT MIGHT HAVE HAPPENED?
Perhaps Teni is finding it hard in transiting to an elite act. She refers songwriting as her hobby and when you factor in show performances, having to tour the world, and having to provide guest features and collaborations, that might take a toll on her.
It’s almost October already with The Headies holding in a few weeks. As at last year, Teni would take home the Next Rated Award without anyone raising an eyebrow but now with the way Zlatan has dominated conversations in the music space this year, he might just emerge as a strong contender.
What Has Happened To Teni?
Does She Still Deserve The Next Rated Award?
