Teni Apata, the Nigerian singer, has gifted her secondary school teacher a car in commemoration of the World Teachers’ Day.


In a now-viral video, the singer could be seen handing over the keys to the Lexus car to her high school mathematics teacher simply identified as Ofudje.

The songstress said she is appreciating him for his “diligence, integrity and hard work”.

“I just wanted to appreciate your diligence, integrity and how hard you work and I decided to buy you a car,” she said.


In a Facebook post, a staff of the Apata Memorial High School shared videos and photos from the event.

The staff said Ofudje was the singer’s “best teacher” back then in school.

“Teni surprised one of our teachers today with a lexus car. Mr Ofudje taught Teni, he was her best teacher back then and she came back to appreciate him. Hard working Mr Ofudje, we celebrate you sir,” she wrote.


Teni started to gain prominence after she released the single ‘Fargin’ in September 2017.

She made her breakthrough after releasing the hit singles ‘Askamaya’, ‘Case” and ‘Uyo Meyo’.

Teni has a couple of music projects to her name, including ‘Billionaire’ (2019), ‘The Quarantine Playlist’ (2020), ‘Wondaland’ (2021).
