In our new OkayAfrica TV series OKAY / NOT OKAY, we ask our favorites artists, celebs and personalities what they think about, basically, any subject that pops into our heads.


In the second installment of the video series, we catch up with Tekno, who's coming off the massive success of his hit single "Pana," one of the hottest afrobeats tracks of 2016,  and his recent signing with Sony Music.

Tekno tells us about his feelings on the Ghana vs. Nigeria jollof wars, Manchester United, the Super Eagles, afrobeats, Fela Kuti and—we had to ask—'techno' music, the genre.

Watch our episode of OKAY / NOT OKAY with Tekno above and find more on OkayAfrica's YouTube channel.
