Comparisons to the great ‘Sade Adu’ aside, Nigerian Afro-Soul/Jazz songstress and composer TENI is an African star in her own right, with the likes of Afrobeat co-creator Tony Allen, the BBC and original Rock bible NME counted as huge fans of hers. Her latest single ‘Your Love Is The Key’ is a stunning and sensual number which sees the eclectic musician match her sultry captivating vocals to a slow-burning Afrobeat-infused groove-filled dance milieu, to stunning effects.
Shot in Labadi Beach in Accra, Ghana and directed by Kemist Gold, the visuals for ‘Your Love Is The Key’ is a simple, natural and ethereal experience which not only accentuates the sultry uniqueness of the single but also pays homage to early 80’s photo-cinema and music. In full diva mode, Teni is glorious as she channels her sensuality and shows off her beautiful African silhouette – rendering her viewer in awe and fully spellbound.
Her debut album Afrodisiac has been described as a timeless, soulful Jazz and Afrobeats inspired classic and Teni is set to revolutionize music with an epic new sound that transcends genres – from Jazz and the Blues to Soul and Reggae – to have a strong, truly universal message.
