Editor’s Note (May 12, 2023, 11:37 AM PST): Teni’s publicist contacted us to update this article, which mentioned a release date for a forthcoming release. Before the request we received today, it was unclear whether there was an embargo.

In a delectable upbeat track, Nigerian Afropop star Teni sings about shooting hoops and putting her life on the line. As the song progresses, the newly independent artist shouts out her day ones and switches from English to Yoruba, and later informs us all that she’s about that life.

“I’ve been shooting hoops on the court with no days off
And you know I put my life on the line and it paid off
Just imagine if I didn’t leave Atlanta for Lagos
Tobi, Bunmi, Brenda & Wale, that’s my day ones”

Described as a freestyle created in three major cities (Lagos, Los Angeles, and Cape Town), the ‘Case’ crooner teased the record previously at a show in Lagos. Stream Teni’s latest record below.
