Speed Darlington, the US-based Nigerian rapper, has argued that Tems and Teni are imitating Tiwa Savage.
The trio are among the biggest female singers in Africa and have won an avalanche of awards among themselves.
But in a recent chat with the ‘Be Grounded’ podcast, the rapper claimed Teni and Tems are “trying hard to imitate” Tiwa.
Speaking in Pidgin English, the content creator argued that the similarities in the first letters of their names — Tems, Teni, and Tiwa — appeared to be a pattern.
Darlington alleged that the duo are scared to take risks regarding their stage names so they “decided to imitate Tiwa because her name brought her fame.”

The rapper, however, did not provide enough context to back his claims.
Darlington also revealed how Zlatan Ibile once rescued him during a gun issue in Lagos.
“Zlatan na my gee! E get one time wey I get some gun issue for Lagos, he quickly came to my rescue,” he said.
“He came with some bodyguards and some men with badges, so he was able to overwhelm my headache
“Because my headache, she believe say she bad, she is connected. So, when I make my own phone call everything became calm.”
Darlington has always made the headlines for several controversial issues.
In 2017, he released his first single ‘Bang Da Dadang’.
