This is a very very late post. I did the review a long time ago but forgot to post it but here it is anyway!
In February, Tekno joined up with his associates OG, Flimzy and Selebobo for the fast-paced club-banger , “Anyhow”,which added fuel to the popular shaku-shaku movement. Now the Nigerian hit maker returns to the style turned him into a continental superstar with “Yur Luv”, his first official single of the year.
It is well-known that he is a remarkable singer and dancer but his stellar production skills are sometimes overlooked. He flaunts his enviable versatility with the self-produced track, tapping into his trademark style of Afro-pop tinged with R&B realness. The seductive beat coupled with his smooth-flowing vocals is very easy to digest
“I no go play with your love oh/I no go do you like that oh”, he vows to a special lady in his life, while assuring that he will continue to cherish her till the end of time. As with some of his other romantic renditions, the song carries a relaxed and almost effortless aura. Infectious melodies topped with rich and delectable African rhythms, Tekno executes these types of songs with ease.
“Yur Luv” comes not too long after he dropped teasers about an upcoming EP. With a selection of chart-topping singles already, a body of work from one of Africa’s finest is long over-due.
