We witnessed the murder of our father, as Teni puts it

Teniola Apata, better known by her stage name Teni, is a Nigerian musician who has spoken publicly about the impact of witnessing the murder of her father, Simeon Apata, a retired Nigerian army Brigadier-General.

On January 8, 1995, in Lagos, Nigeria, gunmen killed Brigadier General Apata (rtd).

According to Teni, the incident occurred in their living room when she was only two years old.

As a guest on the most recent episode of the Tea With Tay podcast presented by actor Temisan Emmanuel Ahwieh, nicknamed Taymesan, she shared her thoughts.

She explained, “My dad was a stickler for rules. He owned the Apata Memorial High School and served in the military. He also donated a lot of money to good causes.

“As a child, I was deeply affected by the tragedy of losing my father at such a tender age. The whole assassination thing in front of all of us and everything. I was just 2 years old.

His death deprived me of a father figure when I was a kid. As a result, I developed some trust issues as a child. Because the intruders came to our home with the intention of murdering him.

The performer proclaimed that her father would forever be her inspiration.
