Teni Entertainer Lands A Spot On Vogue As She Discusses Style, Feminism And Her New Song, Sugar Mummy


Nigerian singer, Teni Entertainer has landed a spot on the Vogue Magazine. The fargin singer had a sit down with Fashion News director Chioma Nnadi where she shared her opinion about living life without limits and redefining the definition of being a woman. In the feature, Teni’s upcoming song Sugar mummy’s video was delved into with the magazine referring to her style in the video as a crossing between a streetwise cool kid and a soigné West African auntie. It said: “Teasers for her upcoming “Sugar Mummy” video are all over her Instagram account, each one more audacious than the next. There she is, decked out in traditional Nigerian pink lace, a bedazzled fascinator perched atop her signature durag like a crown. Another clip features Apata casually swinging off the side of one of Lagos’s distinctive yellow danfo buses, dressed in a black T-shirt, jeans, and a towering cobalt blue headwrap, or gele. The aesthetic lies somewhere between streetwise cool kid and soigné West African auntie, and somehow hits just the right note.” Revealing her opinion on feminism and women dress code, Teniola revealed that: “There’s an assumption that women have to look a certain way to be feminine, but I don’t want to conform to that stereotype. My thing is this: You don’t get to decide how I choose to live my life. I’m being me—respect that.” Elaborating more on her choice of style, Teni shared an experience about her college days in Atlanta where she was always stood out because of her peculiar fashion style. She said: “UGA, the university I went to, was mostly PWI—that’s short for a predominantly white institution,” she says. “I remember someone even asked me if I had elephants in my backyard, it was wild. The other students would look at me crazy when I showed up to class in traditional dress, too. But you know that’s who I am. That’s my culture. If you can wear your blue jeans, I can wear this.”Photo Credit: Getty
