Tekno I Know Doesn’t Have Attitude Problem
The CEO of 03media in this one on one chat with our Executive Editor, Arthur Richard debunked the story making round that one of Nigeria’s rising artistes, Tekno Miles has bad attitude, he also disassociated himself from the crisis involving Kiss Daniel and enstranged record label, G-Worldwide.
You have taking some artistes to Europe way back, can you tell who exactly who you are taking to Europe this time?
This is 2018. It is going to be a great year for us, especially for the practitioner of Afro beat music. We are starting the year tour with OLAMIDE BADOO, which will start on February 2nd from there only God knows who is next.
Can you give us the highlight of the tour?
Actually our tour is for Schengen, I mean European Schengen. This time around, it is going to cross borders with Cyprus, Istabul, Ukraine. It Is strictly all European countries but we are not talking about UK.
We know that some of the issues artistes do have are, security, visa problems, as a promoter, have you encounter such things before?
The secret is to be honest to your client. There is no business that don’t have challenges. It is the challenges that make it more interesting. We have good relationship with some embassy here in Nigeria and they know we are promoting the culture of Nigeria. So they always assist in getting things done in a good way. The secret is just being loyal to the hustle and the game. Being loyal to everybody who believe in our brand.
Tell us more about the previous event you had done?
Let me tell you a secret, it is with Oritsefemi tour in Europe that really opened the business and ways for me. Way back, nobody really knew us but with Afro Beat Tour on Oritsefemi musical tour things changed positively. We did musical tour for couple of artistes Patoranking, Jaywon, Tekno, Kiss Daniel, YQ, Terry G and we are still going to do more, because this is what we know how to do best.
Tell us the most interesting thing we should watch out for in this Olamide tour?
The most interesting thing to watch for is that we want to break some barriers. When I share the idea of the tour with some of my colleagues in Europe, they asked why I was bringing an indigenous rap artiste? An artiste who only sings one language, But I told them music is a universal language and the most interesting thing people should watch out for is the turn out. I know it will be great because positive result is coming in already.You have worked with Tekno and now his attitude has really changed in the industry. Lots of stakeholders are complaining about him negatively, Can you tell us while working with him do you experience the same thing on attitude problem?
I don’t know why people keep saying Tekno has an attitude problem. He is the humblest guy I ever seen. To this moment he is still my good artiste.
We heard that he showed some bad attitude towards Wizkid manager, Sunday Are. Did he do the same thing?
I don’t know where you guys get all this stories from, I think it’s only situation that can make you show the good or bad side of you, he has been behaving well with me.
You have worked with Terry G in the past, now what is the relationship?
Terry G is starting his concert in Lagos in February. The secret about me is that any artiste that I have worked with in the past, we still have good relationship together. Till today we are still friends.
Out of the artistes you ‘ve worked with in the past, which one is the most lucrative?
Way back then you and I know it is all about passion for the music, the music business is very fast but now we are collecting our dues, this business become more lucrative after Tekno tour that lots of people later believed in 03 Media and Afro Beat. We did lots of artistes’ tour which brought good tidings.
Tell us your relationship with Kiss Daniel?
I think I have to be more diplomatic about Kiss Daniel, the owner of G-Worldwide said that I open his eyes to many things. In fact, it was alleged that he started acting funny after he came back from Europe with me but the truth is, I have different relationship with different people, I don’t want to discuss their internal business because it is not my business.
Let’s talk about Olamide, lots of people complain about his attitude too.
Most of these guys you see, we have personal relationship with them even before they are big artistes. To me I see him as my kid brother. I always keep to the rule of our agreement so I don’t know anything about the attitude. Quote me 2018 belongs to him.
