He asserted that Teni and Tems’ choice of stage name is a parody/imitation of Tiwa’s name, even at the risk of appearing envious. Tems and Teni are essentially acronyms of their names, which the presenter tried to point out, but Speed Darlington was having none of it.

The musician and content producer who rose to renown for his unusual style of music and eccentric social media antics claimed that Tems and Teni lacked creativity, which goes against his belief that artists should be innovative.

“Akpi” claims that Teni and Tems emulated Tiwa since her stage name helped her get famous rather than taking chances with their stage names. Most individuals familiar with Speed’s brand won’t be surprised by his assertion because he has a history of making absurd and humorous claims.

He formerly referred to himself as “one of Nigeria’s top artists.” Also, he and social media influencer Tunde Ednut got into a public spat on who was more well-known a few years ago. Indeed, His remarks about Teni and Tems would probably be categorized as one of the numerous humorous observations that have gained him popularity on Nigerian social media.
