After the shocking announcement that Singer Iyanya has been signed to Mavin Records owned by Don Jazzy, fans resumed comparing the ‘Kukere’ crooner to wave of the moment, Tekno.
Some fans have insinuated that Iyanya’s exit from MMMG can be linked to Tekno’s recent success, claiming he felt threatened.
But in a recent interview with Thenetng, Iyanya who was not too pleased with the comparison said it doesn’t make any sense to compare him with Tekno.
He said, “Anybody that compares me with Tekno doesn’t even know what he or she is doing. You can’t be comparing me with Tekno. He’s a blessed kid, he’s a blessed boy, that’s his grace. God is good to him, he’s doing well, he works hard. You know before he started making all these hits, he’s actually been quiet for a while but he’s been working, I call him the Golden Boy and I’m so proud of Tekno. So if you compare me with Tekno, you don’t even know what you are doing, you must be dumb, it doesn’t make any sense. He’s on his lane, I’m on my lane.”
Iyanya also said he would still work with artistes under the MMMG label.
“If it’s possible, why not. If Tekno brings me a beat that I like, why not. If Selebobo brings me a beat that I like, why not,” he said.
