Yors Ariyo, a talented musician, has recently released a captivating new song titled “Teni Yen Sha,” produced by Amb. Wole Oni. The song is sung from a father’s perspective to his daughter, and it is a beautiful adaptation of Bobby Benson’s classic hit “Taxi Driver” (I don’t care). Yors Ariyo’s rendition is a fusion of highlife music and vintage sounds, characterized by lovely brass ornamentation, a velvet baritone lead vocal, and rhythmic balance. The song retains the genre’s fidelity while adding a contemporary feel to it.
The song’s theme centres around parents’ role in supporting their children’s choice of a spouse, regardless of their societal status. It serves as a reminder that dreams can come true, as Yors Ariyo surprised his daughter with his version of the song as a wedding gift. The song ultimately depicts the overwhelming love of our Heavenly Father for us.
The music video for “Teni Yen Sha” was shot by Oluyinka Davids for iFocus Pictures, adding a visual dimension to the song’s message. The song’s rich sound and meaningful lyrics make it a must-listen for fans of highlife music and those who appreciate good music with a message.
