Tekno has revealed that he has been battling with health challenges.

“Hi Everyone, please I will like to clear the air about the situation of videos going round of girls in a truck dancing around Lekki or Victoria Island,” he posted.
“First of, there was no reason for us to be dancing in a Truck around Lekki. There was no music, no ventilation in the truck. We were shooting a music video, and we had shortage of vehicles to convey people to the next location, because some of the cars broke down between the shoot, which we divided ourselves into various vehicle because we had been shooting all day and having fun which we then moved to the next location.
“However, this was about 12am at midnight already. This was no form of advert for strip club or dancing naked on the streets for any type of reason.
“In addition, we respect the decency in Lagos and as much as we are entertainers we are always mindful of what we have and don’t jeopardise it. That’s why we enjoy shooting our video in Lagos. As we all know it’s a Centre of Excellence and also the Centre of Entertainment.
“We sincerely apologise if some people saw this or felt offended by the scenery they saw. It was never intent.
“My people I love you all, stay blessed.”
