Her music is versatile, as anything around her inspires her. She loves Wasiu Ayinde’s songs, and this reflects in her songs as well. Music is spiritual to Teni, as she believes she can change people’s narratives with her music.
As a child, she was in the school band, where she played the drums. Also, as a child, she and her siblings weren’t allowed to go out, so they always stayed in the corridor singing on top of their voices.
Teniola loves playing basketball, so, if she wasn’t a singer, she most likely would have been a basketballer. She is also interested in business, charity, and tech. Teni attributes her high level of confidence to her parents, especially her mum
