Nigerian singer, Tekno, just keeps seeing his stock rise and rise, no more so than his latest collaboration with Canadian rapper Drake and Swae Lee.
Tekno has been given producer credit for the new song with Drake and Swae Lee called ‘Won’t be late’
Drake also announced the song on his Instagram page which he captioned: “New @swaelee dropping 🌎 produced by @teknoofficial 🌎”
This all comes amidst controversy after Tekno released a music video for his new song, ‘Agege’ which featured scantily clad women and is now viral mostly due to the incident with the Lekki Strippers.
The police even invited the singer and his manager in for questioning.
“The police told us to come and clear the air on the whole issue. They told us that they felt that we were advertising the music video, but we told them that it was just a music video shoot.” said Sydorff who is Tekno’s manager.
Following the release of the controversial video which features Zlatan Ibile, the Director-General of the National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC) a parastatal of the Federal Ministry of Information and Culture, Segun Runsewe condemned the video and encouraged the police to look into the case.
“The same person, who was granted bail on health grounds has gone ahead to release the controversial video. We are now warning him to desist from this shameful conduct, which is not part of our culture. No single person is bigger than Nigeria; whether he likes it or not, we are going to use him as a scapegoat to send strong signals that this government does not tolerate nonsense and immorality, but discipline, which is our moral principle.
Runsewe added, “Since the offensive, Tekno scam video came to the limelight, I have received hundreds of telephone calls and SMS from Nigerians at home and others in the United Kingdom, United States, Canada and other parts of the world querying why such anomalies would be tolerated in Nigeria. Now that he has released the shameful video when investigation is still ongoing, we are going to inform security agencies to place him on their watch list, because his action is a threat to national security and a bad influence on Nigerian youths. We are committed to exposing proponents of this kind of offensive sights and videos. We warn that nudity is not part of our culture and should not be tolerated. The Federal Government will henceforth fish out clubs for nude dancers across the country for their promoters to face prosecution,”
