Teniola Apata, better known as Teni, the famous Nigerian songwriter in a recent interview, disclosed her relationship with her sister, Niniola, who happens to be a musician as well.
According to Teni, her sister was always the pretty one, and the introvert while she was the extrovert and loud one.
Teni, however, described herself as “Jaga Jaga.”
In addressing her sense of fashion and her actions, that of her sister’s and music, Teni said, “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 continued.
According to the award-winning singer, “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, it’s about the things you can’t touch. So my own is to make the music, and every other thing will fall in place.”
In her submission, Teni made mention of how she has never been pressured on her style of dressing.
“I’m human, and this is how I have chosen to be. To not expose my skin, to be comfortable with my shirt and shoes, I like to be healthy. 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, ” she said.
