Nigerian music acts, Wizkid, Tekno, Davido and Mr. Eazi, have been nominated for the 2017 BET Awards in the highly controversial Best International Act: Africa Category”. This goes to show that for a long time, since Fela passed on and Eedris Abdulkareem kept mute, there hasn’t been a song with a message rocking the media space -talk more of one with a strong and clear message. Tekno has broken the jinx of message-less” and empty songs -and this makes it standout as a delectable hit song. The piece exudes a deja vu of the heydays when music championed a course and keeps you trapped in it as Tekno takes you through the plight of the nation and the brazen disappointments of the leaders.
The energetic stage performer who in his usual fashion sent his fans screaming in wild excitement at AY’s annual comedy/music concert, weekend, left the shores of Nigeria during the week to an undisclosed hospital in the United States, to receive urgent medical attention before his condition worsens.
He posted, I know I have disappointed a whole lot of promoters and my amazing fans worldwide. I have been sick for over a month from acid reflux and it has worsened. TEKNO’s Will Davison has narrowly missed out on Top 10 finishes at the Townsville 400 for Round 6 of the Supercars Championship this weekend.
The tour continues on Saturday 6 August with a performance in Copenhagen, Denmark. The Dutch city of Amsterdam will be next to receive the man otherwise known as ‘Alhaji Tekno’ on Sunday 7 August. Although the musical jargons -agbada”, jangbaja”, gbangban”, molagbada”, pem”, infused adds to the flow and dynamism of the song, it could be seen by some listeners as lacking meaning.
I’d love to test the car before but I did the race last year in the McLaren so it should come back to me relatively quickly. The cars are very different to Supercars but obviously the track knowledge is beneficial. I don’t have a huge amount of experience in GT cars but it should all even out with the other guys.
But we will be watching things further as they unfold so we can get the full details; even though their Instagram love displays show they are really an item. We were already hyped for his upcoming album, but after this, we can barely contain our already sky-high expectations. Here’s to hoping for more socially conscious bangers – now that we know he has it in him.
