Teni has credited colleague Davido for her mainstream success in the Nigerian music industry after he ‘prophecied’ into her life.
The plus-sized singer whose real name is Teniola Apata brought this information to the fore after she opened up on her close friendship with the Afrobeat superstar as she talks about her new studio album, Wondaland.
She narrated how, one day, he met her in a studio and told her to go back to Nigeria because she’s destined to be a huge star.
“Davido is such an amazing guy. He is special. I had known David right from Atlanta, United States of America. I remember that I met him in a studio and he said to me, ‘Go back to Nigeria, you are going to be a huge star’.
He motivated me with those words and it was just right for me to do something with him. He was already a star at the time. Imagine Davido telling me, ‘Do your thing. You can actually do this thing’.”
“I remember when I met him in his studio session and he said to me in his exact words ‘Go back to Nigeria and you are going to be a huge star‘ So he motivated me with those words and it was just right for me to do something with them for my first album.
He was already huge at the time oo, so imagine Davido meeting me in a studio and telling me to do my thing that I can actually be a huge star”.
