Teni releases an appealing music video for her “No Days Off” single

Teni (@tenientertainer) is an award-winning singer-songwriter, Afropop star, actress, and social media sensation from Nigeria. Not too long ago, she released an appealing music video for her brand-new smash single, titled, “No Days Off,” via Sugar Mummy Records. The video was directed by fellow Nigerian music artist and creative, Cruel Santino (formerly known as SANTI).

“This one was special. I wanted the fans to experience the pulse and energy I got while recording the songs in these cities (Lagos, London, and LA). I also met some incredible young creative and passionate women from Tiktokers to models doing what they love. And they really don’t care what anyone thinks but they are also having fun with it and that’s what “No Days Off” means. You work hard, you focus on you, along with a supportive system around you, and have fun while doing it.” – Teni stated

From getting wild with her crew in Lagos, raving in a corner shop and the metro in London, to playing on the famous Kobe Bryant basketball court in LA, the video pays homage to different sub-cultures that Teni encountered while originally recording the song in these cities earlier in the year. True to the party vibe of ‘No Days Off,’ the Afropop star is in her element as the life of the party all over the world.

“It’s literally NO DAYS OFF”

“‘No Days Off’ was made everywhere in the world – that’s why it really is called, ‘No Days Off.’ It was made in Lagos, it was made in LA, some parts of it were also made in Cape Town. I love this song; it means so much to me and I know you guys are also going to find your meaning to it.” – Teni explained

‘Days Off’ was written as an ode to Teni’s love of basketball and her favorite player, the late Kobe Bryant. The song was played during the Lakers game, was trending on Twitter, and charted on multiple DSPs including Apple Music and Spotify, and even stars like Kevin Hart are dancing to it.

“Just imagine if I didn’t leave Atlanta for Lagos.”

Following the success of last year’s “MAITAMA (Going),” a head-turning collaboration with Mayorkun, Ch’cco, and the late Costa Titch, Teni’s latest single once again shows off the stylistic range and melodic power the songstress possesses.

Teni is known for uplifting, stylistically eclectic songs that stand apart from her Afropop contemporaries. She first came to prominence in 2018, when a series of songs including “Case” found a streaming audience numbering in the millions. Her debut EP, “Billionaire,” followed in 2019. The same year, she was nominated for a BET Award for Best New International Act and an MTV Europe Music Award for Best African Act, before teaming up with DJ Neptune on the next year’s The Quarantine Playlist EP. Teni’s acclaimed LP WONDALAND followed in 2021, with the star going independent that same year.
