When quizzed on her plans for 2020, Teni says, "Album this year." When asked for the date of release, Teni says, "Soon... as soon as I drop the next single." Teni's next single drops very soon.

But before the album, Teni released her first single of 2020, 'Marry.' On that direction, she says, "That song was repeated for my show in the UK. My friend was going to propose to his fiancee. So my team and I asked what can we do to make that moment special? I wrote the song 'Marry' especially for that."

In 2016, Teni joined Dr Dolor Entertainment, the record label owned by businessman, Osadolo Nosa Asemota. Since joining the label, she has gone from a rookie songwriter to a star artist. She has also toured the world - gracing the O2 just a week prior to this interview.

She spoke on joining the label that, "He's just a guy who likes music. I saw hunger, he was ready to push and I just wanted to start with somebody and not go to a place that already had... I wanted somebody that believed in my dreams - most importantly. That's what I did." Teni then called Dolor her "friend" and says that their relationship is excellent.

During the interview, Teni also says that being an independent artist or signed artist to a label should depend on a number of factors. Teni suggests that an artist can seek an investor if he wants funding and could seek a label if he feels he need structure.

When quizzed on why she had a 'different' 2019, Teni says, "I just wanted to make good music. I just wanted to make sure that if I will drop music, it is music that has music and music that will be remembered on years to come and will still have meaning."
