Teni Reaches New Heights With Debut Album 'WONDALAND'

The album follows her recent collaboration with Davido on the single "For You."

Buzzing Nigerian Teni the Entertainer has released her anticipated debut album WONDALAND via Platoon. The album follows a recent collaboration with Davido on the single "For You," which was an international success, and currently the number 1 song in Nigeria.

This album, which was made across 7 cities, London, New York, Dubai, Orlando, Ondo, Lagos, and Abuja, in a span of two years, is a testament to Teni's dedication and attempt to reach new artistic heights.

The 17-track release will stir emotions. It opens with "Maja," an idyllic track that narrates the story of her life accompanied by an Oriki, praise poetry assigned to every Yoruba born child. Followed by her recent single, "For You," with Teni and Davido trading pitch-perfect vocals. Teni also created this bold and expansive project to reach out to different audiences. "I want to see old and young people shed a tear, laugh, dance, and relate and see themselves in the songs and the videos to come."

Ojayy Wright & Teni Bring the Energy With 'Fuji Pop'

You know what's better than one Nigerian hit maker telling you to "shake what your mama gave ya"? Two of them.

The southern-hemisphere-summer envy does not stop! And Nigerian recording artists Ojayy Wright and Teni are certainly not helping with the music video they just dropped. "From Lagos to Soweto", the power duo is definitely getting some of us summer ready with these new visuals.

On the very palpable Fuji musical elements, Ojayy Wright says, "Although I grew up around Fuji music, I was never into it until recently when I found myself using a lot of Fuji elements and realised how much influence it has on me," he says, "So I decided to make something in that line."

It's almost delicious to hear and witness how Wright advances the vision of traditional African Fuji music, by taking the pure joy of Fuji, and mixing it into the tropical vibe he so clearly loves. After the heatwave that was his last album, 37 Degrees In Lagos, Wright welcomes the "boisterous relief of Fuji's loudness" and tongue-in-cheek lyrics to demand an audience, in this next phase of his career.
