Music sensation Tenientertainer says 7 years in University inspired ‘Uyo Meyo’
inspired her hit single, ‘Uyo Meyo’.
“It just came from me being grateful to God for everything thus far. For me, even being able to complete the programme, it took me 7 years to graduate from the university,” she said in a recent interview with Notjustok Television.
“I was just in my car driving to graduation and on my way to graduation, I was listening to a song I had and I called the producer and said send me the beat because the beat was so spiritual and I just started freestyling in my car and that’s just how ‘Uyo Meyo’ came out.
‘Uyo Meyo’ is a good song that was created from the bottom of her heart,” She stressed.
The 26-year-old BET awards nominee says her hit single, ‘Uyo Meyo’ is good music. In her words, “Uyo Meyo is good music. I have had governors call me because of ‘Uyo Meyo’ and I sat across Dangote because of ‘Case’.
Isn’t that good music? Actually, I saw Dangote twice in a row, why? Isn’t that good music? ‘Uyo Meyo’ was a song that was just from the bottom of my heart.
Teni who spoke further on her inspiration and her dream to win a Grammy is so confident of her talent and abilities that she says she will not only win Grammys but also perform and sell out stadiums globally.
“I believe I will win the Grammys, I know I will win the Grammys, I will win the Grammys and I will sell out stadiums around the world. I just know, it’s just in my soul,” she said.
In the early part of the interview, Teni reminisced on how she has prophesied greatness to herself and how it came to be.
“I told someone, you better take my picture, you better take my number because I will be a superstar. I was just saying it, do I even know what I was saying? I was just saying my own, but I just spoke it to the universe,” she reminisced.
Teni says she would only do what she feels or wish to do and not what others want her to do.
On her personality, the `Askamaya” singer says she’s known to be a stubborn lady, who does solely what she wishes and not others wish for her.
“People I grew up with, like friends, have always known me to be a stubborn person,” she began. “I do what I want to do because I just realise from a very young age that look here, how long am I going to be on this earth?
I need to enjoy my life, as long as I am not harming anybody, I need to do what is best for Teni.
I would rather fail at what I want to do than fail doing what someone told me to do.
I’m comfortable in what I am wearing, I mean if I was wearing all these tight things, I won’t be comfortable,” she said.
For Teni, people’s worth is in their person and not their estimated worth.
She says, “Everybody has something to offer, I can’t do your job, can’t hold the camera like the cameraman but you have to be with them to realise because in Nigeria, you being special depends on how much money you have. People don’t know their worth is in their skin.”
Teni’s confidence in her talent when she started was so strong that she told her label owner, Dr. Dolor that he would be making a huge mistake if he fails to sign her.
“Here’s what I told my boss before he signed me.I told my boss (Dr. Dolor) that if you don’t sign me, you are going to be making a very bad decision because I’m different.”
Teni, who has gone from being Headies award rookie of the year to a BET nominee in just two years, confessed to loving roadside stuff that includes local Nigerian snacks.
She went further to share what she has learned after one of her hit singles, ‘Case,’ was released in Nigeria.
She said, “I learned something vital when I dropped ‘Case’. If you want to keep making good music, you cannot think about making a hit song, you just have to make good music. You just have to have that juice and mindset that I want to make good music. I don’t know if it’s a hit or not, and if it’s a hit, we thank God. If it’s not a hit we keep trying.”
Continuing, she said, “By the time Askamaya blew, I was in America, they were telling me that my song has blown in Nigeria.
When I returned to Lagos, people were already calling me olomoge askamaya and I was like…It blew up in London like crazy, like a wildfire.”
For her legacy, Teni wants to live a fully well-spent one. “I want to make sure that when I am dead and people gather around me to sing goodbye, and they are singing it is well, I will know that it is well.

Majek Fashek’s death, a big vacuum – Musicians
The musicians, in separate interviews, told the News Agency of Nigeria on the telephone in Ibadan, Oyo State that Fashek was an icon that everyone looked up to and emulated.
A female musician, Doyinsola Olatunji, said that Fashek was a legend, who was embodied with good lyrics.
She said that he was one of the best musicians to have come out of Nigeria.
“Growing up, his songs were constantly been played on radios and almost in all homes.
“His lyrics were very educating and to also note is his sonorous voice.
“He was one passionate musician and took delight in passing out the right information through songs, and those songs are indeed evergreen.
“His songs are not just songs that will be forgotten over time.
“He was one of a kind musician and was true to his genre of music and his consistency can’t be quantified,’’ Olatunji said.
Also, Dare Ayelabola, the Chief Executive Officer of ‘Another Level Band’ said that Fashek fought a good fight and eventually left a good legacy.
Ayelabola said that it was indeed good to see that he passed on a better person.
“I’m very happy that after all, he went through, he fought the good fight and a changed man before he died.
“I believe he died leaving a good legacy behind for the younger generations to learn from.
“He was a very good musician that produced good musicians with good lyrics.
“He used happenings in the society to teach and inform through his songs,’’ Ayelabola said.
Ebenezer Obey describes late Majek Fashek as humble, creative musician
Legendary Juju Musician, Ebenezer Obey on Wednesday said that the late Reggae musical icon, Majekodunmi Fasheke popularly known as “Majek Fashek” was a humble and creative musician.
Obey told the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos that the reggae maestro’s death was a painful one, leaving behind a huge vacuum to be filled in the entertainment industry.
Obey said that Fashek was always fond of removing his cap and genuflecting to greet him, which exemplified a humble man.
” I commiserate with the family of Majek Fashek, and pray that the Lord will take care of the family he left behind.
” Nigeria has lost a very talented musician; the reggae musical world has lost one of its greatest musicians.
” I know him to be a very creative and humble man who always genuflect to greet me whenever he sees me, he is always calling me ‘Baba’.
” There is nothing we can do because death is inevitable, I pray that the Lord will be with the family and console them: may his soul rest in peace,” he said.
He said the late reggae musician deserved to be honoured because he had contributed to the growth of the Nigerian entertainment industry.
He was also known as ‘The Rainmaker’ and worked with various notable artistes worldwide.
Majek Fashek promoted African values, rhythm through music — Art council
Enugu State Council of Arts and Culture says African reggae Icon, Majek Fashek promoted African values and rhythm through his danceable and philosophical music.
The Executive Secretary of the council, Chief Edward Okolo, said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria on Wednesday in Enugu.
According to Okolo, Fashek is a great musician, who used his musical art to propagate African culture and value to the rest of the World.
The executive secretary noted that his brand of music deepened the understanding of African culture and life-style to the rest of the world.
“Fashek also popularised reggae music, which is a brand of indigenous music originating from Africa.
“His brand of reggae brought out the original African rhythm in music and makes such music danceable.
“The rhythm of his music such as “Send down the Rain’’ in the Rain Maker Album created an inner reflection and retrospect to the listener,’’ he said.
“African rhythm and rhyme comes from our indigenous drums and the drum makes African music unique and beautiful,’’ he said.
He added that the African music icon gave the world that natural African sound tailored in modern musical instruments.

Millions of his fans have paid tribute to the music talent on social media. “Legends don’t die. They live in our hearts forever,” said Oluwatosin Nwodo, a reggae enthusiast who described herself as one of Fashek’s hardcore fans.
“Majek Fashek was a quintessential legend whose works will live forever … For he was a soldier and tool for change that reggae musicians are, symbolically,” Nwodo further wrote in a short tribute on Facebook.
Through his inspirational reggae music, “Majek Fashek was a rare gift to mankind,” said Felix Duke, president of Nigeria’s Creative Industry Group.
Local media reported that the cause of his death is not clear for now, but he had been ill for some time.
In 2015, there was a hiatus in his career when he landed in a drug rehabilitation center in Nigeria’s capital city Abuja, where he recovered and then returned to music.
“I will always remember Majek Fashek for writing Free Africa, Free Mandela, a song he made to lend a voice for the release of Nelson Mandela, then a leader of the African National Congress in South Africa,” said Sammy Wonder, a Nigerian music instructor.
Music industry hits pause to reflect as United States protests rage
Leading record labels will mark “Black Out Tuesday” this week, suspending business and working with communities to fight racial inequality after protests erupted in the United States following the death of a black man, George Floyd, in police custody.
Several top artists have also spoken out in response to the death and subsequent demonstrations, some of which have turned violent.
“We stand with the black community,” Universal Music, part of Vivendi, said on its Twitter account, which featured the hashtag #TheShowMustBePaused.
It said it would contribute to Black Lives Matter and other groups fighting “racial injustice”.
Sony Music made a similar announcement, while Interscope Geffen A&M, part of the Universal stable, said it would release no new music this week.
In a memo to staff over the weekend, Universal CEO,Lucian Grainge, said the company was setting up a task force to work on improving its performance on inclusion and social justice.
“This week, yet again we saw our society’s most painful realities about race, justice and inequality brought — cruelly and brutally — into the harsh light of day,” he wrote in the note, seen by Reuters.
National Guard troops were deployed in 15 states and Washington, D.C. in an attempt to quell a sixth night of violence on Sunday.
The protests were sparked by video footage showing a white Minneapolis police officer kneeling on the neck of Floyd, 46, for nearly nine minutes before he died on May 25.
Beyonce posted a video on Instagram in which she called for justive for Floyd.
“We’re broken and we’re disgusted … I am not only speaking to people of colour.
“If you are white, black, brown or anything in between I am sure you feel (left) hopeless by the racism going on in America right now.”
Several leading artists joined the protests over the weekend, including Ariana Grande.
“Watching my people get murdered and lynched day after day pushed me to a heavy place in my heart!”, Rihanna, a singer-songwriter originally from Barbados, wrote on Instagram.

Mariachis delight quarantined Colombians with jolts of street music
The boisterous music – usually heard at family celebrations and raucous birthdays – bursts through the eerily quiet streets of Colombia’s capital, Bogota. The mariachis have arrived.
As the Andean country waits out two months of a national coronavirus quarantine, musicians playing the traditionally Mexican genre are lugging guitars, trumpets, violins, speakers and microphones to street corners, accepting tips from delighted residents who dance on their balconies.
The pandemic and accompanying shutdowns have cut the musicians off from their usual work, band leader Hubert Ramirez said as his group sets up on a new street.
“The poor mariachis are shut in,” said the father of five. “So we decided to go out, we’ll make people happy and they can support us and that’s how we’ll get through this situation.
“There isn’t money left to buy food, let alone pay rent,” said Ramirez, adding the street playing has helped allay some costs. “It’s gone better than we expected.”
Surprised residents often record the serenades on their cell phones and some sing along.
“I think it’s a breath of fresh air during this situation and it takes people out of their houses, their social isolation,” said resident Maria Elena Mondragon.
“They make us smile so we have to support them, help them because they don’t have a way to offer their services.”
“I think it’s marvelous,” she said.
The nation of 50 million people has more than 16,000 confirmed cases of coronavirus and just under 600 deaths.
It has been in obligatory lockdown since late March.
