Teni The Entertainer, real name Teniola Apata, in her latest feature in Vogue by fashion news editor Chioma Nnadi talks about breaking bounds and living above the limiting stereotype of what a woman should look like (or act like).
“There’s an assumption that women have to look a certain way to be feminine, but I don’t want to conform to that stereotype. My thing is this: You don’t get to decide how I choose to live my life. I’m being me—respect that,” she says
Teni also revealed the first time she met UK based rapper, Skepta, as well as her experience in keepting her style distinct while she attended a predominately white institution in Atlanta, USA.
She said, “UGA, the university I went to, was mostly PWI—that’s short for a predominantly white institution. I remember someone even asked me if I had elephants in my backyard, it was wild. The other students would look at me crazy when I showed up to class in traditional dress, too. But you know that’s who I am. That’s my culture. If you can wear your blue jeans, I can wear this.”
