Tekno has just thrown the internet into some serious pathetic
shock after an interview with popular radio personality, Daddy Freeze.

The singer who has lost form musically, revealed a lot about his bad
medical condition and how he spent so much on getting remedy to his
ill-health till he got broke.

He also talked about how he got frustrated till he had to start visiting native doctors as he was so desperate to be well.

Tekno also talked about how he was so confused about going for a show
in Cameroon or going for his surgery. He revealed the reason for the
confusion was because he was already reaching bankruptcy and getting
frustrated regarding the terrible condition of his health.

Read some of the things he said, “By this time, I’ve seen like
four doctors. I was getting tired, praying, some people go say na Ubi
because is expiring in December, so like e no wan make I sing again
after the contract… someone said it’s a girl, offered me Babalawo… at
this time I was already losing my mind it was insane.

“I’ve drank all the medication, they’ve even given me reflux
medication that they said I have to drink for two months or at least
three months for the acid in your stomach to start to go down because
all these time the acid from my stomach was coming up to my throat and irritating my vocal cords. so I got tired eventually, went to London,
stayed a bit and then I came back to Nigeria…. this is already four
months of no work, no recording, no performance, just spending money
from hospital to hospital, doctor to doctor … somebody even tell me say
make I buy goat and cutlass(laughs).

“So I called my mom and said, look, this is what someone told me.
My mom started to cry, I don’t know, maybe she thought I was going to
do it. … At this time when I was talking to my mom on the phone, it was
extremely hard to talk… I kept studying. Through all these time i’ve
been doing vocal therapy, speaking to different voice coaches online,
just trying to see if there’s a way I can learn to sing from the inside
because they said that if you can sing from your bellies… you’ll be able
to perform, so I was just trying anything I could do.

“I was studying and at some point I just thought, maybe I should
get some surgeries done. In my head, I just felt this is the only option
because I’ve been drinking this reflux medicine for so long and the
acid keeps boiling my throat. Mind you for the past four to five months
I’ve been sleeping with my bed laid down like this (he demonstrated with
his hands on what seem to be like a slant position) with my body up and
my waist down straight. so when I sleep, the acid doesn’t come up. But
since I sleep crazy, I start my sleep with the recommended position and
wake up with all parts of my body in a different dimension.

I had a show in Cameroon three weeks after that surgery. so it
was after I go and perform in Cameroon first or I do the surgery first…

why this Cameroon came up was because, at this time, there was no money again, at this time I already blew through everything so I needed that Cameroon show because that show was paying me a hundred and ten thousand dollars for that weekend. so it’s either I do that surgery, or go and do the Cameroon show, but I was scared because If I do Cameroon and
perform with an already irritated voice just because I need money to
balance my bills, I would end up going back to where I started. So I did
the surgery first and I had three weeks to get fine before I had to go
perform in Cameroon but the doctor had told me that I needed at least
two months before I can go back on stage because of the kind of surgery
that was performed.

“By this time, I didn’t even know how bad it is. They cut me in
five different places. The surgery was done by a robot… after the
surgery, I woke up and looked at myself… it wasn’t a good feeling at
all. I couldn’t move, I couldn’t sneeze, I couldn’t laugh, I couldn’t
breathe, I couldn’t do nothing at all… at this time now, there’s metal
inside of me…”
