Nigerian singer, Teniola Apata has suggested that she was not the calm, pretty type unlike her sister Niniola Apata who was the opposite of her when they were growing up.

Teni made this known during a conversation on Ebuka’s Rubbin Mind show. Teni also revealed that all she wanted to do when growing up was to play football, basketball and watch video games, while her elder sister Niniola was the introvert type.

She said;

“It wasn’t intentional, I have always been different. Nini has always been the pretty type. Me I have always been the Jaga Jaga…I’ll play basketball, come back home, go back and play soccer then come and play games. I am an extrovert and Nini is more like an introvert. Music made her come out more. We are just two different people.

But a lot of people are pressured to show their skin because it is to impress the men. But music is not about impressing anyone, music is for the soul, its about the things you cant touch. So my own is to make the music and every other thing will fall in place.

I’m human and this is how I have chosen to be. To not expose my skin, to just be comfortable with my shirt and shoes, I like to be comfortable. So the most important thing for me is living me and being happy with what I do. As long as I’m not hurting anybody, I don’t care what people have to say.”
