The news that talented singer Tekno was arrested by the men of the Nigeria Police over a video showing the artiste with some semi-nude strippers inside a transparent van, made major headlines yesterday and today, but the singer’s manager has come out to debunk the news.
Tekno’s manager, Sydorff said, in a new interview with Punch, that the ‘Pana’ hit-maker was not arrested as reported by news outlets. He noted that the musician was only ‘invited to clear the air’, which didn’t last for more than one and half hours.
Sydorff said, “Tekno was never arrested by the police. They requested our presence and they told us to please come and clear the air about the whole issue. When we got to the station it was not as if anyone was arrested.
“We just chilled there for a while. We drove there and we left. It was not like anything happened. We spent about one hour and thirty minutes with the police and we left. Everything has been settled now. Initially, there was no problem, it was just the way people escalated the situation. We did not do anything illegal.”
