Nigerian superstar Teni releases her new single Maitama via Platoon. Produced by Jay Synths,
Maitama 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 artistes, 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.
Speaking on the inspiration behind the track Teni explains;
“Maitama is very personal to me, as I wrote it from a space that I was in. I know I won’t have everything in life figured out but eventually it will all fall into place and something great will happen, one way or another I know I’m not stopping; I’m just going to keep on pushing. This track is about me having fun in both good and bad times and expressing myself. I may not know where I’m going but I’m going somewhere…’
Maitama is just a mood of, yes I don’t have all the answers but if I keep going something beautiful is surely bound to happen, it’s about maintaining the balance of faith, hard work and fun.”
