My dad was assasinated in my presence – Singer, Teni

“See As She Con Fine Now” – Netizens Drool Over Teni’s Transformation

Teni, the Nigerian singer also known as Teni Apata, has revealed that witnessing the assassination of her father, Simeon Apata, a retired Nigerian army Brigadier-General, has had a profound impact on her life.

The tragic incident took place in their family living room on January 8, 1995, when Teni was just two years old.

Teni shared this emotional story during her appearance as a guest on the Tea With Tay podcast, hosted by actor Taymesan Emmanuel Ahwieh.

She said, “My father was a disciplinarian. He was a soldier and he owned a school; Apata Memorial High School. He was also a big philanthropist.

“Growing up with my father passing at such a young age, the trauma of losing my father at a young age affected me. You know, him being assassinated in the presence of all of us and all that stuff. I was 2 at the time.

“Him passing away robbed me as a child of having a father figure. It sort of made me have trust issues growing up. Because they [gunmen] came into our house purposely to kill him.”

The singer said her dad would always remain her hero.
