Nigerian singer-songwriter, Teni has released a brand new single – “Maitama” featuring Mayorkun, Costa Titch and Chicco .
“Maitama” leans into the South African house sound where Teni’s distinctive and honeyed vocals entwine with the sounds of the long drum; a familiar hallmark within Amapiano. Teni embraces her native vernacular on this track, which she layers over the infectious beat, surrounded by high-pitched piano melodies and rippled baselines. The single features guest vocals from Nigeria’s very own mayor of Lagos, singer Mayorkun, and South African artists, rapper Costa Titch and multi-award-winning singer Chicco.
Named after a leafy town in Abuja, Nigeria, “Maitama” takes us on a journey where Teni leaves her hometown to embark on new adventures, her final destination unknown but always acknowledging her evolvement along the way.
