Demi Thomas teams up with Teni on ‘Check am’
Nigerian American-based singer and songwriter, Demi Thomas has dropped a new single titled ‘Check am’, featuring popular Nigerian Afro-beat powerhouse and ‘Uyo Meyo’ crooner, Teni Makanaki.
The song, which is her debut single for her forthcoming project is produced by PD, mixed and mastered by Lelo.
Demi Thomas who started making music professionally as a gospel act in 2012 later on would become a contemporary music act infusing various afro-fusions while maintaining lyrical decency and passing relatable messages.
Speaking on why she chose Teni of all talented Nigerian music acts to feature on the song, she said, “Because I feel like the world having to see two plus size girls on a song and on a possible video is what has never been seen. I feel like she’s a queen of my kingdom and you guys don’t understand how difficult it is to be plus size and try to be in this industry. You really don’t.”
“Even to just be plus size and live in a society, if you don’t have a certain pride and confidence that you place on you self like a crown while walking on the streets, no one is going to recognize you. So, what could be a better outcome?”
“I thought Teni would have been the best for that. Also her style, she has this unserious way of singing that’s just so nice and I felt like I needed that ginger, that unserious ginger but a meaningful unserious ginger that she gave to the song. She added that flavor to the song and because I also knew that it might be difficult for me to go to Nigeria, for any reason to feature with an artist. I’m sure when it’s time for the video, I wanted to do it with someone that was also American and which she is, so her coming to America anytime any day is never going be a problem”, she concluded.
