Tekno said he became seriously ilI and couldn’t talk for months after performing in Ghana.
Tekno revealed this during an interview with Daddy Freeze.
He said it was speculated widely that Ubi Franklin was behind “his sickness’, because of his contract with his label was expiring around that time.
I went under the radar for a bit because I was sick and It all started at an event in Ghana, I performed with Wizkid and Davido but somehow I cracked my voice on stage that night.
So when I got back to the hotel, I told my guys I didn’t want to go out again because I really injured my voice and just wanted to rest.
The next day, I had a show In Togo, I performed, still stressed the voice and came back to Lagos but it wasn’t getting better, so I went to see a doctor, he put a camera down my throat but he didn’t really see anything so he just gave me antibiotics and said i should be fine in a week or two but I didn’t get better and by this time I had started cancelling shows.
So I decided to fly to London, saw the first doctor and he said ‘your vocal cord is just irritated’ he gave me drugs and said I should be fine in about two weeks, but nothing changed.
So I decided to fly to Los Angeles and again I saw the first doctor , he said the same thing.
At this stage I was loosing my mind already because it didn’t make sense anymore, I couldn’t sing, I couldn’t talk, sometime they tell me to stay quiet for a week (laughs).
Some people around me started saying it may be from Ubi Franklin because my contract was going to expire in a few months and he didn’t want me to sing again, some others said It could be Iyanya, someone else said It could be a girl, another person offered to take me to see babalawo, I was really getting frustrated.
