I was at a colleague’s office over the weekend and during my stay there, one of Tekno’s recent videos came on the TV screen – the video to “Diana”; while watching, we engaged in a discussion about how well Tekno is doing musically and how he could be rated as the artiste with the best year 2016.
From January to October, Tekno has stayed buzzing with relevant contents and appearances and it is quite safe to say he definitely will be the artiste with the best 2016 seeing that we are left with just two months to go and news are speculating about a Sony Music deal which couldn’t have come at a better timing than now.
Earlier in the year, he rode on the appeal of his hit singles “Wash” and “Duro” which he actually released last year; following up, he released videos which kept him buzzing and much later he released “Where”, also with a video and apparently “Where” wasn’t solid enough to uphold the level his earlier songs had placed him on.
Acknowledging that, he released “Pana”, a song that is currently a national anthem and has been used to create several memes being posted on social media.
He also was a winner at the MAMA Awards for best breakthrough artiste and coincidentally, he had a performance same night at the One Fest Event in Houston.
His MAMA Award perfectly describes his current status as the artiste who has had the best year so far making us wonder what he has been doing in the last four years after been signed to Triple MG.
Like Wizkid, we hope this year signals the beginning of greater accomplishments for Tekno as he is way too talented for us not to enjoy his music.
