After ruling 2016 with a couple of hits under his belt, Tekno seemed to be the next big artist to ‘blow’. But that would not be the case. Tekno spent the better part of 2018 and 2019 battling with health conditions.

Tekno revealed he was battling with Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease and he had to go through a surgical procedure called, Esophagogastric dissociation In a video chat with controversial radio personality Daddy Freeze on YouTube, the singer explained how everything went downhill after he lost his voice.
He says, “By this time, I’ve seen like four doctors. I was getting tired, praying, some people go say na Ubi because contract is expiring in December. So like e no wan make I sing again after the contract… someone said it’s a girl, offered me Babalawo… At this time I was already losing my mind it was insane.
“I’ve drank all the medication, they’ve even given me reflux medication that they said I have to drink for two months or at least three months for the acid in your stomach to start to go down because all these time the acid from my stomach was coming up to my throat and irritating my vocal cords.
“So I got tired eventually, went to London, stayed a bit and then I came back to Nigeria…. This is already four months of no work, no recording, no performance, just spending money from hospital to hospital, doctor to doctor … Somebody even tell me say make I buy goat and cutlass (laughs).
With the singer now back to health, he is set to release ‘Agege’ which features Nigerian rapper, Zlatan Ibile.
