Meet Niniola’s younger sister, Teni, who also sings

Niniola and Teniola

Like her elder sister, Niniola has done, Teni is gradually winning the heart of Nigerians.

Though their styles are extremely different, they both have an undying passion for music.


Teni’s song, ‘Fargin,’ which dropped last year, announced her presence in the music industry. She has also released two songs -‘Pareke’ in December and ‘Wait’ this week.

In an encounter with GoldMyneTV, she said there was nothing she could do better than music.

She stated, “When I am sick, I can still stand up and record songs. Music is something I can do without being paid and the easiest thing for me to do.”

Reacting to insinuations that the lyrics of  ‘Fargin’ are too vulgar, she replied, “If you listen to the lyrics well, it has many meanings. The part I said ‘o ni ki bo pata (they asked me to remove my pants)’ talks about rape and the fact that young girls need to understand that being a virgin is not bad. Young girls are now under pressure because the society feels it is uncool to be a virgin.”

While admitting that Niniola has been instrumental in her life, she stressed that she had challenged her to prove herself to the world.

She added, “My sister is my family and nothing can change that. I don’t care about what anyone says. Our happiness comes even before music.”
