Teni The Entertainer says No Discrimination For Fake Jersey Buddies


Teniola Apata on paper, Teni the Entertainer on the internet; if you’re still not familiar with one of Nigeria’s fastest rising trendsetters, then it’s time you fixed your timelines. From releasing blockbusters – Fargin and Askamaya, to writing for A-list artists, her emergence as Headies’ Rookie of the Year (2018) remains unquestionable.

In her new single, Teni is sharing the struggles of Nigerians who had to battle for the limited Nike/NFF sportswear collection for the Russia 2018 World Cup. No, just when you were thinking you were the only that saw the ‘sold out’ notification on Nike’s website, or after rambling about the people who chose to go the counterfeit way, Teni is letting you know that regardless of circumstances, in a world of guccihallination, it’s none of your business, perhaps you should be focusing on more important topics like how the super eagles will make good use of the marketing budget squandered and get out of the group stages.

One of the most fascinating elements about this song is Teni’s eulogy to past Nigerian players like Rashidi Yekini, Daniel Amokachi, Jay Jay Okocha, and the likes, as well as evocations from previous participation at the World Cup. If you’ve been looking for the perfect morale to help you rock your fake jerseys (because 40k Nigerian naira isn’t small change), then you have it now!
