The journey that led to the release of this album has been an eye opener for me, I have learnt so much over these years…

Learnt to deal with my shortcomings and embrace my victories, basically love life and appreciate all that comes with it. I’ve learnt to see from different perspectives of life, and this helped me appreciate my heritage, who I am and the role I play. And I’ve embodied all that experience and knowledge in this album!!!“

Ladipoe Is a Biker In The Visuals For ‘Lemme Know’ Remix

After inspiring a number of remixes that were shared across social media, Ladipoe has released the visuals for the Teni-assisted ‘Lemme Know’ remix .

This was a song that continued his string of pop-centric releases in 2019. Produced by Ozedikus, popularly known for his work with wonder kid Rema, ‘Lemme Know‘ finds a relaxed Ladipoe churning out cheeky lines with a polished flow and an airtight delivery over the head-bopping instrumental. He kicks things right off on the record with “your sugar mummy on my case like Teni,” and it’s only right he recruits Teni for the remix, which he’s done.

On this remix, Teni makes her presence known with a scene-stealing feature where she rides the beat smoothly with her vocals. LAdipoe himself comes through with refreshed verses and neatly polished flows that gives this version a very different life from the original. The song peaks when the two acts go back and forth with their verses.

In the accompanying visuals, Ladipoe is a biker who stunts with his crew in a parking lot. Teni later joins him in a ride with a stunt driver running a drift move in the lot.

Teni Wants To Take Her Love To The Next Level On ‘Marry’

Teni is back with her first post-”Billionaire” release which also happens to be her first single in 2020 titled ‘Marry’. This record comes just as we celebrate love in February, peaking with the annual St. Valentine’s day, celebrated exactly a week ago. 

For Teni, she is almost done celebrating a love without a future. She wants to take this to the next level, hence this direct message to her lover. 

As common with Teni’s records, this song is rich in instrumentation, particularly African percussion coated with her beautiful and chilling vocals. For the hook, she interpolates one of Nigeria’s most popular childhood games “When will you marry?”

She documents the frustrations that come with being in a relationship for so long without a conviction of where it’s headed. Another Valentine’s day just passed, yet Teni still hasn’t gotten her ring and she’s done having it. 

Now she is taking matters into her own hands, directly asking her longtime lover when he is going to propose. She is done waiting and throwing the guy hidden signs. This situation has gotten beyond that. Now she is intentional and very frontal about her desires; she wants to be proposed to and taken to mama.

And to be fair, after committing to a relationship for seven year, that’s not too much to ask for. 

Enjoy the record above.
