Teni is one of the hottest Nigerian artists right now, and undeniably the best new act to emerge from last year. Since being given that title formally at the Soundcity MVP awards, Teni has appeared on songs by other upcoming acts, like Ryan Omo's "Nkwobi", and, now, Chuvano's "Smile".
Produced by Ozdbeat, "Smile" is an uplifting highlife bop that sees Chuvano encouraging us to smile through the hate. He gives us golden tips for how to discredit those trying to push us down: Show that your beauty is divine and that your Instagram doesn't lie.
While Chuvano releases this track in celebration of his birthday, today is Valentine's Day so the lyrics must, in some way, pertain to love. Teni brings in this element as she sings about finding peace in her lover's arms. The track is a commendable addition to 2019's Valentine's Day repertoire.
