Nigerian singer Teni has disclosed in an interview with Ebuka’s Rubbin Mind show, that she knows she is not as pretty as her sister Niniola Apata.
She added that, growing up all she wanted to do was play football and watch video games, but her sister was the introvert type.
“It wasn’t intentional, I have always been different. Nini has always been the pretty type. Me I have always been the Jaga Jaga…I’ll play basketball, come back home, go back and play soccer then come and play games. I am an extrovert and Nini is more like an introvert. Music made her come out more. We are just two different people.
But a lot of people are pressured to show their skin because it is to impress the men. But music is not about impressing anyone, music is for the soul, its about the things you cant touch. So my own is to make the music and every other thing will fall in place.
I’m human and this is how I have chosen to be. To not expose my skin, to just be comfortable with my shirt and shoes, I like to be comfortable. So the most important thing for me is living me and being happy with what I do. As long as I’m not hurting anybody, I don’t care what people have to say.”
