Terry Daniel Akewe (Born 27th of May 1999), well known by his stage name, Terri is a Nigerian singer, songwriter and performer. The Afro-Pop singer who is the eldest of four siblings hails from Edo State, Nigeria. His craving for music started far back as during his days in secondary when he was part of a music recording duo, a group that went on to win the 2013 City People Talent Hunt.
Terri’s music career took a new turn after he recorded a cover of DJ Jimmy Jatt and Wizkid’s single ‘Oshe’ and posted it on Instagram on the 17th of December 2017. He tagged Wizkid alongside a couple of other celebrities and the video caught Wizkid’s attention and made him develop a keen interest in Terri. In February 2018, he got officially signed to Starboy Entertainment records by Wizkid and made his debut on the song ‘Soco‘ which was arguable the biggest Nigerian song in 2018.
If you’ve been regular on social media recently, you’ll notice there’s been a buzz regarding this project and finally, the “Afro Series” EP by the man, Terri is out, it’s time to feast on it.
The “Afro Series” EP is Terri’s first body of work, it houses 7 sizzling records with no features. However, some high-profile music producers claimed the production credit on the project, the likes of Sarz, Killertunes, IamBeatz, Tuzi and Blaise Beat. The EP “Afro Series” is a pure Afrobeat vibe influence with Terri’s distinctive, soulful vocals and mesmerising songwriting to create a project that is undeniably a modern classic in the making.
The album which was released on Thursday currently sits on the #7 spot on Trending music on audiomack and #3 on Nigeria Apple Music Chart. It appears that Wizkid’s fanbase is the back bone of his music.
