“For now, music is my primary focus,” she insists. “Of course, at some point in the future, I will like to have a family of my own but for now, I am in a relationship with my music.

“I have a very wide taste in music; so, I listen to all sorts and that influences me in different ways.”

Teni also said that she is surprised at how fast she has risen in the music industry and has assured fans that they are yet to see the best of her.

“To be honest with you, I am amazed by how far I have come in a short while but I can also assure you that you have not seen anything yet” she says.

“I still have a lot in stock. As a matter of fact, I have barely started. I am usually overjoyed when I see people singing my songs word for word with so much passion.

I love to make people happy and I have been able to do that with my music. I have very big dreams as far as my career is concerned and I can only tell you to keep your fingers crossed.”
