Terri, Nigerian singer talks on Kenya tour

Daniel Aweke, also known as Terri in the entertainment industry, has spoken out about his plans to perform in Kenya.

Terri made the statement during an interview with Antoneosoul on Nation Drive. Terri was just signed up by Wizkid, a popular name in the entertainment sector.

He expressed his desire to see his supporters in Kenya, stating that he has only heard of excellent afrobeat fans from the country.

"I absolutely need to land in Kenya." I'll be performing a concert there as well. "I want to see all of my fans, and it will be announced shortly," the singer remarked.

Terri also discussed his new EP, In Transit, which he defined as a progressive production that reflects his growth and direction in the worldwide music landscape.

"As the name implies, In Transit is a project that demonstrates a continuation of my initial project, 'Afro Series,' as well as where I am musically and where the movement is heading," Terri explained.

"I wanted to be recognized, heard, and seen." It's still a work in progress, and I'm still holding on to my hopes," he added.

After the release of his phenomenal hit single Ojoro, which went viral and garnered a positive response in a matter of days, the singer's popularity in the music industry skyrocketed.

Terri was discovered by Mutay, Wizkid's longtime producer, when he spotted him on social media covering the song Oshe.

Wizkid's song Soco was released in 2018 and the singer was announced as the first artist to be signed to Wizkid's Starboy Entertainment.

Terri Akewe was already famous when he was discovered. He had sung at street carnivals in his neighborhood when he was fifteen, and after winning a Coca-Cola-sponsored singing competition, he was carried home by neighbors.

Terri had a seven-track EP and a popular song titled Voices ready for release before his life-changing meeting with Wizkid.

Terri told a Nigerian local magazine, "One time I was on site with the video director T.G Omori, he informed me that Voices was the first time he heard of me."

Regardless of Terri's initial professional path, signing to a label led by afrobeats' biggest artist was sure to speed up his musical journey while also casting a huge shadow of expectation over his career, especially considering Soco's amazing debut.
