‘Wondaland’ – Teni’s debut album is out

Published

on

Teni unveils her debut album titled—Wondaland. Wondaland is a manifestation to Teni’s musical influences, inspirations, roots and her upbringing.

Since her rise to fame, Teni has always kept it jovial, upbeat but knows when to switch tempo to discuss on matters her heart desires (like on ‘Billionaire’ and ‘Super Woman’) and all these, she interpolates to make for an emotional thriller on Wondaland.

Sticking to the formula that has worked fine thus far through her career, she continues in making Pop records, Afro-Pop and a little bit of R&B and Hip-Hop just to show her diversity and versatility across genres.

On Wondaland, Teni orchestrates the emotional but joyous ride almost all through the entirety of the LP, recruiting just one co-pilot, Davido on the already released track – ‘For You’.

Keeping it eccentric by singing on variety of topics on her debut album, Teni keeps proving why she is one of the best and sort after songwriters in the nation. Family upbringing and background (‘Maja’, ‘Dads Song’), love and relationships (‘For You’, ‘Toxic’), money and wealth (‘Hustle’), assertiveness (‘Moslado’, ‘XXL’) are just some of the topics Teni touched on Wondaland with the final song (‘Black’) serving to further the Black Lives Matter movement and stand against police brutality both home and abroad.

Amapiano is the new cool and this Teni did not fail to tap into as she sings over an instrumentation blended with SA’s finest genre at the moment on the eleventh track (‘On’).

Wondaland is filled with 17 songs and released under licence to Dr Dolor Entertainment. Teni is also known by the alias “Teni the Entertainer” and that she does in all ramifications on her debut album.

Wizkid and Tems make history as “Essence (Remix)” enters the Billboard Hot 100 Top 10

Published

on

When Nigerian R&B singer, Tems, serenaded listeners on the hook of the crossover hit single—”Essence”—to the “You don’t need no other body” words, she indeed might have meant it in the relationship and/or sexual context but those words, those lyrics have gone on to have a life of their own outside the contextual or colloquial insinuation. This is very evident with the records the track keeps amassing, creating some in the process. The week starting 12th Ocotber (according to Billboard’s known style of uploading their weekly updated charts on Tuesdays) will see the pair of Nigerian Pop and R&B acts, Wizkid and Tems create a groundbreaking statement no other Nigerian artistes has ever made—the remix to “Essence” will make its debut on The Billboard Hot Top 10.

“Essence” was initially released almost a year ago, October 30th to be precise as part of Wizkid’s fourth studio-album, “Made In Lagos” and it soon became the rave of town both home and abroad, even being teased as one of the topmost songs of the summer 2021; its remix however came some ten months later, on August 13th, featuring American popstar, Justin Bieber.

Some few weeks later, the remix debuted on The Billboard Hot 100, even making it to the Top 20, peaking at No. 13, a record for any Nigerian song and artiste(s) at that time; this time around, it moves three spots upward to the No. 10 on the chart, becoming the first Nigerian song to make an entry into the Top 10 of the prestigious Billboard Hot 100 chart, invariably making both Wizkid and his featured guest, Tems, the first pair of Nigerian acts to have a song reaching that high on the chart usually dominated by American artistes and songs reigning in the USA. A historical moment for Wiz, Tems, Nigerian music industry and Africa at large.

This week’s Top 10 songs on the Billboard Hot 100.

‘Only paper can stop him’, Twitter users make rock-paper-scissors joke to The Rock featuring on “Face Off” by Tech N9ne

Published

on

Actor, body builder, motivational speaker, businessman and now rapper, Dwayne Johnson known as The Rock (since his WWE days) features on Tech N9ne’s latest album, “ASIN9NE”, on the sixth track—Face Off—on which he spits some bars on being undefeatable and focusing on the drive to becoming a successful and strong man that he is today, “It’s about drive, it’s about power, we stay hungry, we devour / Put in the work, put in the hours and take what’s ours / Black and Samoan in my veins, my culture bangin’ with Strange” he begins with, a nod to what keeps him so determined and acknowledging his roots for playing a major role in who he has grown to become.

One would assume everybody loves The Rock based off of his social media presence and movie roles he’s taken upon, although a strong-built man by appearance, he exhibits jovial characteristics that make him so beloved among fans worldwide but some users of Twitter want nothing to do with this latest rap venture he delved into, claiming he just isn’t built for the rap game, others claim he sounds too generic with the funniest of the lot, those who respond with memes of paper or make suggestions of paper when someone asks ‘who gon stop him?’.

The rock-paper-scissors game is a classic long-standing game where the players use hand to suggest the items involved, knuckles all clamped together for ‘rock’, peace sign i.e both the index and middle finger for ‘scissors’ and the palm (all fingers spread out) for ‘paper’. Rock smash scissors, scissors cut paper, and somehow paper covers rock, hence the point of the joke by the Twitter users who use the paper as pun to the only item that can stop The Rock at this point.

Check out the tweets below:
