To celebrate the holidays, Teni is offering her fans a gift in the form of a new single titled “Christmas is Here”. Tis’ the season for giving after all and the song tributes to the merry sentiments that come along with the international holiday. Over a piano-led beat Jaysynths Beatz produces to mid-tempo guitar and drum riffs, Teni’s performance highlights all of the optimistic characteristic of Christmas; Happiness, family and Christianity.
Although the nearly 2-minute long song is brief and rendered in much warmer vocals than anything we’ve gotten from the singer till date, Teni didn’t metamorphize from being an Afropop party starter on “Askamaya” to become a sentimental ballad singer overnight. It’s no great detective work to hear the cheeky and romantic intentions expressed on her popular records where she also blends her Yoruba and English influences. Her unabashedly reveling in the glory of Christmas means the song will only be seasonal, but it’s sure to boast her visibility this festive season.
