Teni couldn’t have made Nigerians happier as she found time to reply to Nollywood actress Monalisa Stephen’s call out on social media.
Stephen had a problem with the fact that Teni disclosed that staying alive is the reason she chose to go on a weight loss journey.
The actress tagged the singer as fat, phobic and ungrateful after the fat community supported her craft.
Teni on Twitter simply made it clear that she wouldn’t be arguing with any Monalisa unless it’s the one her colleague Lojay sang about.
“I ain’t going back and forth with no dumb Monalisa, that ain’t who Lojay sang about.”

“Stop putting fat people up for dragging. We just living like everyone. Lose weight but stop the BS”.
