Teni Replies Journalist Who Criticized Her Over Her Weight

Nigerian singer Teni come onto Osagie Alonge, after he asked her to stop making music because her weight doesn’t make her saleable, aso Naija reports.

The comment from the journalist had come three years ago, and Teni seems to have just responded to it for the first time.

If Teni wrote Askamaya for Tiwa Savage, Mummy Jam Jam will buy Bentley for Jam Jam. I talked to a top music exec and he said, ‘Fam, the look doesn’t work’.

Teni has now found ample time to respond to the criticisms during a fresh interview with Chude.

But this one I don’t even know you like that. If I see you outside, I might not even say hi because we don’t have that relationship. You don’t know me so why should (what you’re saying) count
