A debut album from Tekno has been highly anticipated. The singer has on several occasions, suggested he would be releasing a debut album pretty soon.
Recall that the lack of an album had seen the HEADIES organisers place Tekno under the “Next Rated” Category.
That did not go well with the singer which eventually lead to his disqualification from the award.
That year, saw Mr Eazi emerge winner of that category.
Nonetheless, the singer has continued to release hit songs with “Choko” as his latest release.
