Tekno, Nigerian Afrobeats singer, has put out a new single dubbed ‘Better (Hope for Africa)’, shortly after the release of ‘Agege‘.
The new song was released of Wednesday.
‘Better’ is an advocacy and solidarity song that sees the 26-year-old crooner mildly taunt Nigerian leaders for “feigning ignorance” of the average citizens’ plight and solicit for a better country marked by an equitable distribution of basic amenities.
It features an eclectic mix of indigenous beats and tunes with a concomitant blend of ingeniously crafted lines in both the Nigerian Pidgin and Yoruba language.
Tekno, born Augustine Miles Kelechi, has been at odds with the Lagos state police and recently underwent interrogation on account of his controversial video shoot which involved semi-nude ladies dancing in a transparent truck in an evening traffic.
Although the singer had apologized to persons who had felt offended by the stunt, the National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC) vowed it would make a “scapegoat” out of him to deter other persons who intend perpetrating such “immorality.”
“No single person is bigger than Nigeria. We are going to use him as a scapegoat to send a strong signal that this government does not tolerate nonsense and immorality, but discipline, which is our moral principle,” the agency had said.
