Renowned Nigerian singer, songwriter, and record producer extraordinaire, Tekno, has unveiled his highly-anticipated musical offering, The More The Better album. Comprising a total of thirteen meticulously crafted tracks, this album marks a significant milestone in his musical journey as his official sophomore release, following his debut album, Old Romance, which graced the airwaves in 2020.
Throughout the dynamic landscape of Afrobeats during the 2010s, Tekno etched an indelible legacy with a series of crossover hits that reverberated worldwide. His distinctive knack for concocting infectious dance-ready tunes and irresistibly catchy tracks set him apart as a true virtuoso in the realm of Afrobeats. Coupled with his remarkable ability to both write and produce music, evident in his contributions to chart-topping records by global heavyweights such as Drake, Ciara, and Davido, he solidified his reputation as an all-encompassing sonic polymath.
The More the Better album unfurls with an aura of creative freedom, unveiling a Tekno who is at the zenith of his artistic prowess. His mellifluous vocals glide effortlessly over beats, finding the most tantalizing pockets within the music. The album encapsulates a triumvirate of moods, featuring Tekno’s introspective lyricism, exhilarating dance-floor anthems, and his trademark romantic narratives, all conveyed in the infectious cadence of pidgin English.
Tekno himself sheds light on the album’s essence, remarking, “For me, this album is a vessel for conveying profound messages to people, especially in the context of the fast-paced world we inhabit today. It’s a world where patience is scarce, relaxation is a luxury, and everyone is perpetually in motion. ‘The More the Better’ encourages us to pause, unwind, and savor the beauty of life.”
