"I used to force my younger ones then to come and do back up for me. Teni did not have a singing voice; she just wanted to sing, and most of the time she sang very badly. It wasn’t until years later that she told me that she thought I was jealous of her voice before other people called her attention to it. Until one day, when she was in secondary school, she came up to me and sang, and I was like: it is a lie. I was baffled."
