Teniola Apata, also known as Teni, a superstar Nigerian female musician, has disclosed that she wants her family and loved ones to put “She lived life on her own terms” on her grave after she dies.
Teni, 30, revealed this while appearing as a guest on the newest episode of the Tea With Tay podcast, hosted by actor Temisan Emmanuel Ahwieh, nicknamed Taymesan.
According to the singer, who also stated that her father died when she was two years old, life goes on after death.
According to her, “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.”
