She disclosed that she was the rough kid while growing but her sis was the pretty and organised one who comes home neat and tidy. “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“, she said.
Speaking on her size, how she gets to manage body shaming, why she does’t reveal her skin and the effect of her size on her career, Teni noted that people are pressured to show their skin to impress people but to her, music is not bout impressing but something for the soul. She added that she choses not to expose her skin simply because she enjoys being comfortable in her shoes and shirts.
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.
