Spot out reasons why fans feel TEKNO'S New single 'Diana' is dead on arrival

How do you go from having the hottest single in the country, to releasing the most underwhelming of all weekly releases?
Tekno’s latest single, ‘Diana’, is a weak song. That cannot be disputed. From the guitars, the composition and production, that song is weak.

Selebobo, (who is famous for his production of Yemi Alade’s greatest ‘Johnny’ single) and KrizBeats (who is the creator of the current hit song ‘Pana’), came together to produce this underwhelming record, which at best sounds more like an album filler, than a song that would succeed the phenomenon that ‘Pana’ has grown to become.
The young, light-skinned, musician is currently the de facto Prince of Nigerian pop music, after many years of hustle in the game. Originally born in Bauchi, Tekno who had a father serving in the Nigerian army was transferred between Nassarawa, and Kaduna, before settling in Abuja. It is in the nation’s capital city that he found his rhythm with music.

Loving Tekno is easy. He makes it simple for everyone to fall in love with not just his music, but also his celebrity. His lifestyle is a cross of D’banj and an Ice Prince, as he alternates between classy and flashy. There’s also humor too, adding another element to his act.
Last year, Tekno’s ‘Duro’ and ‘Wash’ were more than songs. They became a state of mind in romance, as relationships and marriages depended on the delightful melody, and the nonsensical pleasing lyrics to savour moments. Lines like “Your beauty done make me realise, say NEPA don bring light”, and “If you like to watch movies, na me get Shoprite”, resonated deeply with lovers. Truly, that buzz is yet to die.

2016 has had him fire some more, giving us more hits, as ‘Where’ has achieved acceptance. His second single ‘Pana’ is exploding and spreading like wildfire. The song has caught on in the East, the West are on it, and in street corners and clubs, Pana is making a surge through.
But Diana is a let down. It has nothing that will make it a hit song. No amount of promotion and video can get that to hit great heights. It should be chalked by the record label as a mistake; an act made in error, and regretted immediately. And then he can further enjoy ‘Pana’, milk it of all its potential revenue and drop a new single.
‘Diana’ is dead. Dead on arrival, and should be forgotten. Tekno should never have done it.
