The singer explained that everything started after he cracked his voice and lost his voice. He said he went to different doctors in Nigeria, and many of them told him it was not serious.
Tekno shared his experience in a detailed interview with controversial On Air Personality Daddy Freeze. He told Freeze about the surgery he had to do to get better, and he also talked about doing the Beyonce project weeks after his surgery.
According to him, after trying different treatments, he decided to travel out to the United Kingdom, and later to the United States where he found a doctor who told him he would get his voice back.
Tekno explained that several people in Nigeria told him that the sickness was due to supernatural attacks from his former partners Ubi Franklin and Iyanya. He noted that someone even told him to buy three machetes and a goat.
The singer noted that he lost his mind because he could not talk and things did not make sense anymore. He said: “I couldn’t sing, I couldn’t talk, sometimes they tell me to stay quiet for a week.”
He said he lost a lot of money to the hospital and contracts he could not fulfill because he could not sing. He stated that there was no work, not records, and no performance.
