Nigerian singer-songwriter and entertainer, Teniola Apata MON, professionally known as Teni, has released the visual representation for her collaborative single, ‘Maitama’ with Mayorkun, Costa Titch and Ch’cco, directed by Darion 4k and Teni.

Teni is a versatile artist who infuses her sound with different genres, including Pop, RnB and Dance to name a few. She recently collaborated with Stormzy on his recent single ‘Hide and Seek’ and has also worked with Nigerian superstars Wizkid and Davido.

Set against a colorful backdrop, the cinematic visuals take us on a journey with Teni and friends cruising through the suburbs, enjoying life ready to embark on new adventures. Shot in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Atlanta, the video is filled with fun vibes starting from sunrise then morphing into the night where we see Teni, Costa Titch, and Ch’cco surrounded by fast cars, bikes and high energy.

Speaking on the inspiration behind the track Teni explains:

I wanted to create a video that reflected the tone of the track. ‘Maitama’ is just a mood of, yes I don’t have all the answers but if I keep going something beautiful is surely bound to happen, it’s about maintaining the balance of faith, hard work and fun. So, it was important that all of those elements were included

As one of the leading Nigerian voices on the African music scene, Teni’s talent was first discovered via the internet with her many freestyles and covers, resulting in her signing a record deal in 2017. Influenced by homegrown artists like, King Waisu Ayinde Marshall and King Sunny Adu, she also took inspiration from the American greats like Sam Cooke and Marvin Gaye.
