(+Lyrics + Translation) Meaning and Lyrics Translation of Were by Teni

Music review: Were by teni

“Were,” is a song by Nigerian singer and writer, Teni. 

So, I am wondering what category to classify this song, whether secular or gospel. Anyway, I have decided to make it gospel…

What do you all think?

Moving on, this song is inspirational, I can’t wait to watch the video.

What is the song Were by Teni all about?

Were is a Yoruba word in Nigeria that means “Easily.”

Teni sings about how God showed up, answered her, and turned things around for her easily. What humans couldn’t do, God did for her.

She is therefore spurring people who may be going through a rough time not to give up on God or in their pursuit of success. But to be determined, stay strong, keep working hard, and believe that one day, God will solve their issues and answer them easily. Success would certainly come when you least expect it.

She also warns that people should not put so much trust in humans as they may not help them out in their difficult situations, and may also be seeking their downfall or death.

Lyrically: The song comes in two verses. The chorus was taken thrice while the pre-chorus was taken twice. The artist sang in Yoruba, a Nigerian language, and also in standard English.

The lyrics are inspiring and well written. The verses are succinct but interesting. The chorus and pre-chorus predominated the song.  

Vocal: Inspiring, confident and clear. I love the backup

Melody: This song is melodious. The major instruments used in the composition of the song include the tambourine, drums, piano, guitar, saxophone, and maracas.
