Tekno's Throwback Single 'Jogodo' Is Just The Song You Need

The Nigerian singer just released a new track 'Jogodo'

Tekno's singles just keep on coming, and here's the newest one.

The Nigerian singer and songwriter just dropped his latest single "Jogodo," which he also produced. The track has that easy but addictive beat that earned him a place among the new wave of Nigerian artists we've been seeing a lot lately.

"Jogodo" is also a throwback to a more retro Nigerian sound, borrowing inspiration from Professor Linkin's 'Jogodo'. Tekno released six singles last year, including "Only One" and a collaboration with Wizkid, "Mama."


Tekno has been hyping up the release of his new single on Instagram all week, and even getting high praise from Drake. The Canadian rapper comment "BIGGEST CHUNE" on one teaser, to which Tekno responded "They ain't ready."

This track is just what you need to carry you into the weekend, and you can listen to it below.
