Tekno talks battle after losing his Voice, Ubi Franklin, Iyanya war in interview with Daddy Freeze (Watch)

Music star, Tekno, is opening up in this tell-it-all interview with On Air Personality, Daddy Freeze.

The singer who recently featured in Beyonce's "The Lion King: The Gift Album", gave more insight about the battle after damaging his vocal cord about two years ago.

Tekno had announced then that he had acid reflux and he said a doctor told him it was pretty serious and the irritation affected his vocal chords.

He explained that he cracked his voice while performing one day and things went downhill from there.

He flew to London when things got serious, and then to the US.
He kept cancelling shows, and spending thousands of dollars on consultancy both online and offline.

At some point, the singer said, he had to go quiet for three weeks, using an app to communicate with others.

Eventually, he had to get surgery done after series of gruesome tests. Surgeons had to install a metallic substance to prevent stomach acid from flowing back into his oesophagus.
Tekno said after the surgery, was when he had to fly to the US for the Beyonce project.

He also said around the time he was going through this was when photos of him and Drake made the rounds on social media. Unfortunately, they couldn’t make music together because of the situation with his voice.
On leaving Ubi Franklin's record label, MMMG, Tekno said his contract with the label expired before he left.

He said the label was getting 60% of all his profits, but he's not sure if Iyanya, who was then co-owner of MMMG got anything from the cash.

When asked if he’s going back, he said: “hell no” - adding that a lot of crazy stuff went down there while he was with the label..

But he’s not going to say anything about the Ubi Franklin and Iyanya war of words.
He also revealed that he wasn’t happy when Iyanya called Ubi out, saying there was a time it made sense to call him out, not when everything had been settled.

He disclosed that two years into his deal with MMMG, he wanted to leave because a lot of things were going on and he couldn’t say who was to blame, but Paul Okoye stepped in and cooled things off. He said it would have made sense if Iyanya spoke up at the time.

He said he’s now running his own record label – Cartel.
