Tekno and Runtown are undoubtedly 2 of the biggest artistes in Nigeria and they’ve both given us hits and bangers that will forever live with us.
Though the two artistes sing completely different types of music, they’ve both produced magic.
Burna Boy, Davido and Wizkid may be the current front runners in Nigerian music industry but we can’t deny artistes like Tekno and Runtown of their crown.
Tekno is an amazing artiste, he’s a producer, dancer, and songwriter. In his prime he gave us songs like Duro, Pana, Skeletun, Diana, Wash, Go, Yawa, and many more.
