“See, South Africa, you are in for it. Osimhen over to you, Lookman, over to you,” she said.
Nigerian singer, Teni has comically weighed in on Davido’s loss to South African singer, Tyla at the 66th Grammy Awards.
Teni took to her Instagram account on Monday February 5, 2024, warning South Africa’s football team about the challenge they will face at the AFCON match against Nigeria on Wednesday. Using humour, Teni stressed that Nigeria’s team will make South Africa “dance amapiaono on field.”
She playfully blamed the Grammy Awards for potentially affecting the celebratory mood in Nigeria, questioning if they are trying to “kill our groove,” emphasising that there is now an issue.
Teni said: “Wahala wa o, there’s a problem. Grammy wa o, we’ve had parties upon parties and we still have a party for tonight, we have many many parties. I personally have like 5 for tonight. Grammy, are You trying to kill our groove? See, South Africa, you are in for it. Osimhen over to you, Lookman, over to you. South Africa you will dance amapiaono on field. The sky is crying , Grammy whyyy?”
Teni’s post comes after singer Davido lost in all three categories in which he was nominated, including the African Music Performance of the Year category which was won by Tyla. Other nominated Nigerian singers like Burna Boy, Asake, Olamide and Ayra Starr also lost in their categories at the award show.
These loses led to a variety of reactions from Nigerians across social media. Despite the setback, Teni has jokingly redirected her energy towards the upcoming football match between Nigeria and South Africa.
