In the early part of the interview with newsmen, she revealed how she prophesied greatness to herself and how it has manifestd in her life.

The BET awards nominee says her hit single ‘Uyo Meyo’ is a good music. She made it known that governors had to call her because of the song and she had actually met with Dangote because of another hit single ‘Case’.

“I was just in my car driving to my graduation and on my way, I was listening to a song I had in my car and I called the producer to send me the beat because it was so spiritual and I just started freestyling in my car and that was how ‘Uyo Meyo’ came out.

“It came out from me being grateful to God for everything so far. For me, even being able to complete the programme, it took me seven years to graduate from the university,” Teni stated.
