Why I Want to Work With King Sunny Ade— Teni
Popular vocalist, Teniola Apata, aka Teni Entertainer, has not been consistent in dishing out hit tracks to her teeming fans. The choruses of a number of her lyrics have taken on lives of their own and become catchphrases for many. The singer has also worked with numerous artists but she revealed that there was one person she would adore to work with.
In an interview with Saturday Beats, she said, “King Sunny Ade is that veteran musician I would love to work with. I would 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 the 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, aso naija gathered.
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 labor 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.”
