Nigerian singer Teni Makanaki has revealed that she was rejected so many times in the early stage of her career because of her fashion sense and her weight.
Speaking to Bolanle Olukanni on Ndani Tv’s ‘The Juice’, the “Sugar mummy” hit maker stated that she had to use social media as a tool to push her talents as no one gave her the chance.
When asked what success in her career meant to her, Teni stated that what she would describe as success in her career is to be able to break boundaries and prove to people that said no to her, that she has been able to make it without their help.
She was then asked by the host some of the reasons why people said no to her to which she replied “I’m fat…and my dressing…but these are the very things that have worked for me.”
Teni added that she had to use social media to push her music because of these reasons and she is grateful that it paid off.
