Triple MG musician, Tekno caps off an amazing year by getting named among Billboard Magazine’s 10 Hip-Hop & R&B Acts To Watch In 2017! They also confirm Tekno’s deal with Sony Music via Columbia Records.
Here’s what they had to say:
Tekno already has a number of hits in Nigeria, and Columbia Records took note, throwing its weight behind this agile, elastic-voiced singer. Tekno’s “Pana,” which has already accumulated more than 13 million views on YouTube and inspired a minor version of a video challenge, is romantic and light on its feet with little more than a nagging guitar line and squirts of bass, everything pegged to a serpentine forward march. There’s clearly a demand in the mainstream for feathery dance cuts like this one: close your eyes and imagine a smart radio programmer cueing this up after Drake’s “Too Good”.
Tekno himself then posted an exerpt from the article reminding his fans not to ‘sleep’ on him.
Tekno was listed among other Hip-hop and R&B artistes like Khelani, Aminè, Leela James, Guordon Banks, Princess Nokia etc.
