Popular Nigerian singer Tekno will be so excited wherever he is right now at the prospects 2017 already holds for him, after such drama he recently had with the organizers of the Headies Award.
From dishing hits back to back, to signing a Sony Music record deal; this year has indeed been filled with major achievements for the “Pana” crooner. Do not forget that he also won a major award at this year’s MTV MAMA Awards.
Now the artist has been listed as one of the “10 Hip-Hop and R&B Artistes to Watch In 2017” across the world! This is really big. Congratulations to Tekno!
Read what the magazine wrote about him:
“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.”
Others on the list are Kehlani, Aminé, YFN Lucci, Leela James, Kodie Shane, Princess Nokia, Guordan Banks, Khalid, H.E.R.
