Avenge Nigerian artists’ Grammy loss in South Africa clash – Teni tells Osimhen, others


The Nigerian singer also known as Teniola Apata, Teni, has encouraged the Super Eagles to give their all in the semi-finals against South Africa’s Bafana Bafana in the ongoing African Cup of Nations (AFCON) on Wednesday.

In an attempt to exact revenge for the loss of some Nigerian musicians at the hands of South African singer Tyla at the 66th Grammy Awards, she pleaded with star striker Victor Osimhen and his teammates to make sure they destroy the South Africans.

According to reports, Tyla, the lone non-Nigerian contender in the first Best African Music Performance category, won the Grammy on Sunday, beating out the Nigerian quintet of Burna Boy, Ayra Starr, Davido, Asake, and Olamide.

In response, Teni posted a video message on her social media pages pleading with the Super Eagles players to defeat South Africa in the semifinal match at Bouaké’s Stade de la Paix, in Cote D’Ivoire, in order to exact revenge for their countrymen’s Grammy loss.

She said, “Grammy there’s a problem. We have many parties. You have killed our groove.

“South Africa, Tyla’s ‘Water.’ Alright. [Victor] Osimhen, over to you. [Ademola] Lookman, over to you. South Africa, you will dance Amapiano after your AFCON defeat. You killed my groove. Grammy why?”
