TEFO is an abbreviation for Truth, Enlightenment, Freedom, and Opportunity. He’s a rising artist that gives openness, raw emotionality, and catchy wordplay through his music. TEFO has the talent of creating songs that provoke thought but also make you dance.
TEFO has a unique sound that equally blends pop, afrobeat, reggae, and R&B. This comes from his initiative to honor his Caribbean and African roots. He credits his family for introducing him to an array of conscious music and genres that break boundaries. His musical influences include a range of artists including Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Fela Kuti, Michael Jackson, Timbaland, and Ryan Leslie.
‘Blow Me Away‘ is a song about TEFO’s desire to celebrate people who take you to your happy place. It has a joyful, uptempo jam that has equal parts pop, R&B, and afrobeat. Looking into the lyrics of the song, you’ll hear TEFO singing about a special someone who can bring him calm in a world of chaos and light to a world of darkness.
The song’s musical style is reminiscent of works from Fuse ODG, Davido, Maleek Berry, Jason Derulo, and Chris Brown. With this track, TEFO wants to remind his audience to seize the day. He says, “Love is the answer always and we can’t be afraid to lead with love and show people that we care about them, especially because tomorrow is never promised.”
