Nigerian singing sensation, Teni Makanaki has revealed that she will never see her sister and colleague, Niniola, as a rival in the music industry.
The ‘Isolate’ singer explained in a recent interview that her father instilled so much love and togetherness in all his children that rivalry can never be brewed.
“There is definitely no such thing as a rivalry between Nini and I,” Teni began. “It’s hard to believe but growing up in such a big household taught us about love for one another. We always ensured we had each other’s back.”
Speaking further, Teni also revealed her attachment to, ‘Uyomeyo,’ one of her biggest songs since making her mark on the Nigerian music scene.
The Ondo state indigene confessed that the song, which was rendered in Yoruba and Ondo dialect, leaves her speechless every time she listens to it.
“Uyomeyo is that song that leaves me speechless every time,” she confessed.
Teni went on to say, “It (Uyomeyo) has a very special place in my heart because it has so much meaning and tells so much of my journey so far in life.”
Earlier in April 2020, Teni released an Elongated Play entitled ‘The Quarantine EP’ with the hit track, ‘Isolate’.
The 27-year-old singer is signed to Dr. Dolor’s entertainment. She canceled the second leg of her billionaire concert scheduled for April in Ondo as a result of the lockdown occasioned by the coronavirus pandemic.
Teni is the younger sister to the songbird, Niniola, who recently got a Grammy nod for her participation in making Beyonce’s last album, ‘The Lion King’.
