TOP 20 KORA FOCUS : Tekno, The Revelation of Nigerian Music !


Nigerian music has since been recognized as a real talent factory. Especially in the Afrobeat genre many young talents have not stopped exploding since a certain Wizkid.

Since the year 2015, we witness the outbreak of the Tekno prodigy which was revealed precisely during the MTV Africa Muzik Award 2016 as revelation of the year. At the age of only 23, Tekno, known as “Golden Boy of Africa”, evolves into a musical universe influenced by pop music, blues, hip-hop and is virtually versatile as a musician, composer, producer and dancer.

He exploded in 2012, following the performance of his single “Onye Ne Kwu” at a party where he met Iyanya and Ubi Franklyn the Boss of Made Men Music Group label on which he was signed in 2013. This act was the turning point of his career, the first fruits of which were the singles “Dance” and “Anything” which were nominated in 2014 at the Nigeria Entertainment Awards. In 2015 he recorded “Duro” which was well received, then the remix of this sound with Phyno and Flavour arranged by Dj Coublon was in the Top Chart of the Afrobeat tubes in Nigeria for a good moment of the year 2015. The young Nigerian with a style close to that of Wizkid did not finish revealing his capacities, and it is clear that being the revelation of the MTV Afrika Muzik Award 2016 only foreshadows the musical wonders that this young person will make.
