Augustine Kelechi, a singer better known as Tekno, has finally come through with ‘Old Romance’, his long-awaited debut album.
The Afrobeats singer took to his social media pages to announce the release of the 14-track project in the early hours of Friday.
Songs on the project include ‘Sku Sku’, ‘Tumbo’, ‘Uptown Girl’, ‘Catalia’, ‘Addicted’, ‘Designer’, ‘Family Issues’, ‘In Love’ and ‘Neigbor’, ‘Armageddon’, ‘Dana’, ‘Enjoy’, ‘Ugly Parade’ and ‘Mistake’.
It remains unclear when the singer first teased fans about the project. In November 2019, however, Tekno announced that he can’t wait to release the project.
“I can’t wait to release this album. #Oldromance,” he had written on Twitter.
Born on December 17, 1992, in Bauchi state, Tekno has become a household name in the music industry, since dropping his first single dubbed ‘Holiday’.
In 2018, he signed a distribution deal with Universal Music Group Nigeria (UMGN), a division of Universal Music Group (UMG) in charge of West Africa, as well as the UK-based Island Records.
The ‘Skeletun’ singer has snagged strings of awards, recognition as well as collaborations with other music heavyweights.
Tekno has also been critical of the country’s leadership. In August, the 27-year-old singer had cursed politicians looting the country’s treasury.
“If you a leader in this country stealing from your people and just can’t give back small to the people. God will make u suffer in ways money can’t fix,” he had said.
The gifted singer made the headlines in 2019 over his face-off with Lagos police authorities after his controversial video shoot which involved semi-nude ladies dancing in a transparent truck amid evening traffic.
Although he apologised for the stunt, the National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC) had vowed to make a scapegoat of him as a deterrent to persons who intend to perpetrate “immorality.”
