The young musician and producer tells how he was so sick and was even going bankrupt during his ill health condition, he stated he moved from one hospital to another, doctor to doctor and was even tempted to visit a Spiritualist (Babalawo) during his illness.
Teknomiles or Tekno has disappeared on the spotlight in recent months but the rest of the world thought he was out of form, but to everyone’s surprise the “GO” crooner has been spending every dime in his account to come back into music and has even go bankrupt to make sure he is back to normal, the singer in his interview with Daddy Freeze says he was even in mixed decisions when Cameroon called him for a show just the same time he was about to be operated, the bankruptcy was tempting him to choose the latter (Show) but decide against it as his fans will be disappointed with his performance and probably degrade him.
Here is some of his interviews statements with Daddy Freeze. “By this time, I’ve seen like four doctors. I was getting tired, praying, some people go say na Ubi because is expiring in December, so like e no wan make I sing again after the contract… someone said it’s a girl, offered me Babalawo… at this time I was already losing my mind it was insane.
“I’ve drank all the medication, they’ve even given me reflux medication that they said I have to drink for two months or at least three months for the acid in your stomach to start to go down because all these time the acid from my stomach was coming up to my throat and irritating my vocal cords. so I got tired eventually, went to London, stayed a bit and then I came back to Nigeria…. this is already four months of no work, no recording, no performance, just spending money from hospital to hospital, doctor to doctor … somebody even tell me say make I buy goat and cutlass(laughs).
“So I called my mom and said, look, this is what someone told me. My mom started to cry, I don’t know, maybe she thought I was going to do it. … At this time when I was talking to my mom on the phone, it was extremely hard to talk… I kept studying. Through all these time i’ve been doing vocal therapy, speaking to different voice coaches online, just trying to see if there’s a way I can learn to sing from the inside because they said that if you can sing from your bellies… you’ll be able to perform, so I was just trying anything I could do.
“I was studying and at some point I just thought, maybe I should get some surgeries done. In my head, I just felt this is the only option because I’ve been drinking this reflux medicine for so long and the acid keeps boiling my throat. Mind you for the past four to five months I’ve been sleeping with my bed laid down like this (he demonstrated with his hands on what seem to be like a slant position) with my body up and my waist down straight. so when I sleep, the acid doesn’t come up. But since I sleep crazy, I start my sleep with the recommended position and wake up with all parts of my body in a different dimension.

“I had a show in Cameroon three weeks after that surgery. so it was after I go and perform in Cameroon first or I do the surgery first… why this Cameroon came up was because, at this time, there was no money again, at this time I already blew through everything so I needed that Cameroon show because that show was paying me a hundred and ten thousand dollars for that weekend. so it’s either I do that surgery, or go and do the Cameroon show, but I was scared because If I do Cameroon and perform with an already irritated voice just because I need money to balance my bills, I would end up going back to where I started. So I did the surgery first and I had three weeks to get fine before I had to go perform in Cameroon but the doctor had told me that I needed at least two months before I can go back on stage because of the kind of surgery that was performed.
“By this time, I didn’t even know how bad it is. They cut me in five different places. The surgery was done by a robot… after the surgery, I woke up and looked at myself… it wasn’t a good feeling at all. I couldn’t move, I couldn’t sneeze, I couldn’t laugh, I couldn’t breathe, I couldn’t do nothing at all… at this time now, there’s metal inside of me…”
