Nigerian Songwriter-Singer, Teniola Apata, widely known as Teni has opened up on her close friendship with Afrobeat star, David ”Davido” Adeleke.
According to the ”Case” crooner, Davido gave her the motivation to return to Nigeria by letting her know she would be a star.
Teni made this revelation while speaking on her debut album, Wondaland, and also disclosed that she was friends with Davido right from Atlanta, US.
She narrated how, one day, he met her in a studio and told her to go back to Nigeria because she’s destined to be a huge star.
In her words;
“Davido is such an amazing guy. He is special. I had known David right from Atlanta, United States of America. I remember that I met him in a studio and he said to me, ‘Go back to Nigeria, you are going to be a huge star’.
He motivated me with those words and it was just right for me to do something with him. He was already a star at the time. Imagine Davido telling me, ‘Do your thing. You can actually do this thing’.”
