Teni’s fairy-tale breakout run in 2018 heralded the entry of a self-accepting pop star. In that year, she delivered multiple smash hits, including “Askamaya”, “Case”, and “Uyo Meyo”. The following year, she shared her debut EP, ‘Billionaire’, with its title track quickly rising to nationwide ubiquity. She followed up with ‘The Quarantine Playlist’, a joint EP with DJ Neptune in the thick of Nigeria’s nationwide lockdown last April, while teasing an upcoming album later in the year – which didn’t end up happening.

To close 2020, Teni then released a new single, “Jo”, along with its accompanying video, hinting at the possibility of the album release sometime early this year. The singer has now confirmed impending plans to drop the album in March 2021, going on to unveil the title to the debut as ‘Wondaland’. At this time, details of the project are scarce, but we do know that the video for a Davido-assisted track was recently shot. It’s safe to say that Teni’s debut album is a highly anticipated and long-awaited drop for Afropop listeners, so we’ll keep you updated as more details get revealed in coming weeks.
