Comparisons to the great Sade Adu aside, Nigerian Afro-Soul/Jazz songstress and composer TENI is an African star in her own right, with the likes of Afrobeat co-creator Tony Allen, the BBC and original Rock bible NME counted as huge fans of hers. Her latest single “Your Love Is The Key” is a stunning and sensual number which sees the eclectic musician match her sultry captivating vocals to a slow-burning Afrobeat-infused groove-filled dance milieu, to stunning effects.
