Tekno Miles has been named among Billboard’s ten hip-hop, R&B artistes expected to do well in 2017.


The American music magazine included the Nigerian singer in its yearly list of ten artistes touted to give a good account of themselves in the coming year.

“Tekno already has a number of hits in Nigeria, and Columbia Records took note, throwing its weight behind this agile, elastic-voiced singer,” the magazine noted.

“Tekno’s “Pana,” which has already accumulated more than 13 million views on YouTube and inspired a minor version of a video challenge, is romantic and light on its feet with little more than a nagging guitar line and squirts of bass, everything pegged to a serpentine forward march.


“There’s clearly a demand in the mainstream for feathery dance cuts like this one: close your eyes and imagine a smart radio programmer cueing this up after Drake’s “Too Good.”

Others artistes included in the list are Kehlani, Amine, YFN Lucci, Leela James, Kodie Shane, Princess Nokia, Guordan Banks, Khalid, and H.E.R.

The MMMG singer was recently nominated in the ‘Next Rated’ category of the Headies 2016 award.


His nomination was withdrawn after failing to take part in the series of activities nominees of the category were expected to undertake.
