Overcoming Challenges

In a recent conversation with Afrobeats Intelligence, as reported by Pulse.ng, Tekno revealed that he experienced nine months of voice loss caused by acid reflux following vocal cord surgery.

With “The More The Better,” Tekno aims to solidify his place as a leading figure in the Afrobeats scene, showcasing his evolution as an artist. This album is not just a collection of songs; it represents Tekno’s resilience and his commitment to his craft, despite the hurdles he has faced in recent years.
