Teni breaks silence on kidnap attempt during performance in Rivers

Nigerian singer, Teniola Apata has denied reports saying she narrowly escaped a kidnap attempt during a performance at Buguma, Asari Toru Local Government Area of Rivers State.

A viral video late Sunday night showed how the incident happened in Buguma.

Teni started her performance on stage as the crowd sang along when the sound of broken bottle and gunshots were heard, then the crowd scampered for safety.

But Teni’s management on Monday morning said it was not a kidnap attempt, but a fight that broke out backstage, leading to a stampede and pandemonium, so they had to carry her to safety.

“Everybody is fine, and everything is good. We are on our way back to Lagos now”, Teni’s management told BBC Pidgin
