The sophomore EP In Transit, written and composed by Terri himself, has gathered a lot of Nigerian famous producers such as Krizbeatz and P.Priime, and invited Mugeez as a guest for a short appearance. The album is the perfect allegory of afropop and R&B glory, by matching triumph, rich melodies along meaningful lyrics, putting Terri as the king of his own kingdom taking the listeners along to a journey full of love and romance.
Putting in words the inspiration of the In Transit EP, Terri says, “I spent the past year exploring different sounds and honing my craft – this project is an account of that artistic journey, as well as my personal journey going through the different emotions of love, relationships, and romance. ‘In Transit’ is a transition from where I was musically, to where I am now, and where I’m headed. It’s me thinking about where I’m coming from, acknowledging my growth, and getting closer to my goals”.
Terri has entered the afrobeats scene by the big door back to teen years, he is currently the only artist signed by Wizkid under his Starboy Records label. The single ‘Soco’, collaborative track between the young artist and Wizkid, has been certified as a gold-selling hit.
