Teniola was born in Kaduna State, Nigeria and he is the last born among his siblings who fondly refer to him as ‘Tenisco’!
Several members of his family observed his keen interest in art just a few years ago. Although his artistic expressions are still evolving, he nonetheless devotes a lot of time to drawing abstract forms and objects with emphasis on a variety of colour shades and strokes.
Perhaps one of the most outstanding qualities of Teniola is his ability to memorise and recall audio-visual information extremely well.
Some classic favourites that he has memorized include, The Sound of Music; The Wizard of Oz; the entire 3-hour proceedings of a 1970’s British comedy series titled ‘Mind Your Language’, as well as the theme songs of several contemporary Nigerian television series such as ‘Super Story’ among others.
