Billboard Mentions Tekno As Next Possible Nigerian Pop Star To Break Into North America

Things are moving pretty fast for Tekno, the Nigerian Pop star and producer for the biggest song in Africa right now ‘IF’ by Davido. Yes, the singer has been featured in an article on US based website, with the headline ” Will Tekno Be the Next Nigerian Pop Star to Break In North America?”

In the article, Billboard chats with Tekno about his smash hit records like “Pana”, “Duro” and the latest single, “Yawa”. The artist talks about the effect success has had on him, taking his music to the next level and so much more.
Tekno’s connection with Columbia is the latest step forward in an inch-by-inch acknowledgement of the commercial viability of Nigerian pop in the U.S. Most of those steps have come via collaborations sprinkled over the last five years — P-Square and Rick Ross, D’banj and Kanye West, Davido and Meek Mill, Wizkid and Major Lazer, Wizkid and R. Kelly. Nigerian-born Ayo Jay had a minor hit with “Your Number” last year, which got some attention when Fetty Wap appeared on one remix, and Chris Brown and Kid Ink on another. The best-known recent example of a Nigerian-Western team-up is Drake’s “One Dance,” which included Wizkid. Wizkid is now signed to RCA — also the home of Davido and Ayo Jay — with an album due out on the label this summer.–Bilboard
Well, it’s no doubt that Tekno is likely to be the next star from Nigeria to break into the US especially when his song ‘PANA’ is now making waves there. We wish him the very best.
