Teni On Her Struggles in the Industry: “If They Don’t Open the Door, I Break in”

Teni continues to wax stronger in the music industry, which is never an easy thing for a woman, especially one who refuses to squeeze herself into that tiny box of feminine expectation built for women.

The singer sat down with DJ Abass for the new episode of “For the Record,” where she talked about the lack of recognition songwriters get in the industry.

“A lot of people don’t embrace songwriters,” Teni said, and she also spoke about the importance of collaborating with other songwriters, how this results in quality productions, which sadly aren’t recognised as it should be.

“People don’t understand that a Rihanna, for example, has about  7 songwriters on a song… do you know what it means for a song to be world class? You have different brains coming together to make it dope,” she continued.

And she said a lot more, including shedding light on the ‘split’ paradigm, which allows songwriters to share percentages of their written songs.
