Award-winning artiste Teni the Entertainer has joined forces with Afro-beats star Davido to drop what is set to be the highlight song of February. Teniola Apata, popularly known as Teni is a songwriter, singer and actress who has been recently taking the African music scene by a storm. Her new style of music which involves mixing an array of genres ranging from Afro-beats, to pop to R&B and so much more has given her quite a reputation in the industry. She credits some of this prowess to the huge influence from the likes of King Wasiu Ayinde, King Sunny and Dolly Parton.
The singer teamed up with Davido to release the collab single “For You”. The song is an emotion-tinged slice of Afro-beats, seeing Teni and Davido trade pitch-perfect vocals amongst poignant acoustic production. The similarly touching official video sees Teni stuck behind bars before her best friend Davido breaks her out – but not without consequences.
She says, “For You is a record I made to celebrate the essence of love, sacrifice and the reaffirmation to always be there for that special someone who means the world to you,” she proceeds to explain, “always wanted to make a record like this with Davido especially because of my admiration for him as an artist, father and someone with a big heart.”
Davido comments stating, “This is a special record and as a father to three beautiful kids, I know how much they mean to me and how I am ready to give them everything good the world has to offer.”
“For You” is Teni’s first track of the debut album WONDALAND that she is set to drop around mid-March. The album promises a diversity of sounds as it puts together some of the artiste’s most daring tracks recorded with producers and other artistes from across the globe.
