Singer and songwriter, Teniola Apata, unleashed her much anticipated studio album, Wondaland on us in March 2021. The album contained 17 tracks with only one guest artist, Davido, featuring in the hit song ‘For You’. ‘For You’ has gone on to become the headline song in the album, with the video already dropping.
However, when quizzed on why there was only one guest feature all through the album, and why it was Davido, Teni revealed both artistes have sweet history, right from when she was in Atalanta, Georgia, US.
Davido apparently holds a special place in her heart as one of those people who motivated her to pursue her musical career in Nigeria.
In a recent Insta-live session with media personality, Adesope Olajide, affirmed ‘it had to be Davido,’ despite maintaining good relationships with several big stars like Burna Boy and Wizkid.
“I remember Wiz saw me at the headies and Wiz literally stood up and said hello. They always show love, Burna ….. Anywhere Burna sees me, he always shows love. But David is special because I have known Davido since Atlanta ooo,” the ‘Billionaire’ singer said.
“I remember when I met him in his studio session, and he said to me in his exact words: “Go back to Nigeria and you are going to be a huge star.” So he motivated me with those words and it was just right for me to do something with them for my first album.”
He was already huge at the time oo, so imagine Davido meeting me in a studio and telling me to do my thing that I can actually be a huge star,” she added.
Both artists have been spotted hanging out several times. One time, it was rumoured Teni took the DMW boss shopping.
