Teni the entertainer

The epitaph Teniola Apata, better known by her stage name Teni, wishes to be written on her grave is now public knowledge.
She said she wants her loved ones to remember her by writing: "She lived life on her own terms."

She revealed this in the most recent episode of the Tea With Tay podcast, which is hosted by the actor Temisan Emmanuel Ahwieh, better known by his stage name Taymesan.
Teni said, “My father died when I was two years old. If you die today, life goes on. You don’t get to express yourself.

“Expressing yourself is very important. The people that judge you, they will die too. So, they would die with their own stories. You die with your own story. I’m living my life because this is my terms to let the world know who I am.
It’s my terms to sing when I’m feeling down, when I’m feeling up. It’s my terms to express myself. I’m not going to be here forever. None of us are leaving this world alive.

“On my grave, I want them to write, ‘She lived life on her own terms.’ Yes, I want to die happy. I’m going to die empty.

“A lot of people are carrying so much greatness in them but are too afraid to express themselves. Trust me, the graveyard is full of so many dreams and talents. Things that could have changed the world.”
