Today Nigerian superstar Teni releases her new single “Maitama“, Produced by Jay Synths and ‘Bigfish’, via Platoon. This is the follow up to her previous single ‘Little (I Love I Love)’ and arrives hot on the heels of her COLORS Show performance.
‘Maitama’ leans into the South African house sound where Teni’s distinctive and honeyed vocals entwine with the sounds of the long drum; a familiar hallmark within Amapiano.
Teni embraces her native vernacular on this track, which she layers over the infectious beat, surrounded by high-pitched piano melodies and rippled baselines. The single features guest vocals from Nigeria’s very own ‘mayor’, singer Mayorkun and South African artists, rapper Costa Titch and multi award winning singer Ch’cco.
Named after a leafy town in Nigeria, ‘Maitama’ takes us on a journey where Teni leaves her hometown to embark on new adventures, her final destination unknown but always acknowledging her evolvement along the way.
