Nigerian producer and Island UK/Universal Music Nigeria afrobeat artist, Tekno surprises fans with a brand new single ‘Better (Hope for Africa)’.
The track comes on the heels of the musician’s release of the visuals for his controversial track ‘Agege,’ and his recent production of the song ‘Won’t Be Late’ for international artists Swae Lee and Drake.
The heartfelt track is a call to action for African leaders. Tekno, who is billed to perform at the One Africa Music Fest in London this weekend, uses his platform to ask leaders across the continent to focus on the important social needs of the people. He mentions the lack of sufficient food, light, good roads, safety, healthcare, and education to name a few, showing that he is more than just an entertainer.
The song lyrics, accompanied by Tekno’s unique and mellow afrobeat sound, sends across a powerful social message. It shows us once again that Tekno is one of Nigeria’s most highly rated musicians and producers for a reason.
