Nigerian artiste Tecno after being off the scene for a while has just come out to reveal his ordeal during his absence.
He revealed this in a tell all interview with Daddy Freeze.
According to him he suffered for months spending millions on hospital bills, he even got operated on by a robot.
During this time he explained that some people around him suspected Ubi Franklin and Iyanya.
I went under the radar for a bit because I was sick and It all started at an event in Ghana, I performed with Wizkid and Davido but somehow I cracked my voice on stage that night. So when I got back to the hotel, I told my guys I didn’t want to go out again because I really injured my voice and just wanted to rest.
The next day, I had a show In Togo, I performed, still stressed the voice and came back to Lagos but it wasnt getting better, so I went to see a doctor, he put a camera down my throat but he didn’t really see anything so he just gave me anti biotics and said i should be fine in a week or two but I didn’t get better and by this time I had started cancelling shows.
So I decided to fly to London, saw the first doctor and he said ‘your vocal cord is just irritated’ he gave me drugs and said I should be fine in about two weeks, but nothing changed.
So I decided to fly to Los Angeles and again I saw the first doctor , he said the same thing.
At this stage I was loosing my mind already because it didn’t make sense anymore, I couldn’t sing, I couldn’t talk, sometime they tell me to stay quiet for a week (laughs).
Some people around me started saying it may be from Ubi Franklin because my contract was going to expire in a few minths and he didn’t want me to sing again, some others said It could be Iyanya, someone else said It could be a girl, another person offered to take me to see babalawo, I was really getting frustrated.
Someone even told me to buy a goat and three matchetes for sacrifice
This all happened over a period of like four months, no work, no recording, no performing, I was just spending money from hospital to hospital.
Then I started doing vocal therapy and it got to a point i just thought doing a surgery was the best option.
I eventually flew to New York to see another doctor who promised me i’ll be fine and sing again. At this point, I had spent alot of money and done all sorts of weird and disgusting tests and scans.
The surgery option i opted for was the one that had to do with them putting a magnet inside my throat.
The surgery was done by a robot, they cut me in five fdifferent places. After the surgery, I couldn’t move, i couldn’t breath, couldn’t sneeze. It was hell.
