This is one of my most favourites Christmas songs by a Nigerian artist, and I am sure you would enjoy it as it comes with a lovely flow like every of Teni’s song.
Christmas Is Here by Teni was released in 2018. A part of lyrics from the songs goes thus “Ah aii aii aii aii, ah aii aii aii aii
I hope that this Christmas is good to you huhu hu yeah
I hope that this Christmas is good to
You, I hope that this Christmas is good to me…”
