Singer, Iyanya has been in the news in the last 24 hours following his new record deal with Don Jazzy‘s Mavin.
While many believe its a great deal for both parties, others revisited the recent comparison between the singer and his former label mate, Tekno who is now on a steady rise.
Thenetng asked Iyanya about the comparison and he wasn’t too pleased. He responded saying, ‘Anybody that compares me with Tekno doesn’t even know what he or she is doing. You can’t be comparing me with Tekno. He’s a blessed kid, he’s a blessed boy, that’s his grace. God is good to him, he’s doing well, he works hard. You know before he started making all these hits, he’s actually been quiet for a while but he’s been working, I call him the Golden Boy and I’m so proud of Tekno. So if you compare me with Tekno, you don’t even know what you are doing, you must be dumb, it doesn’t make any sense. He’s on his lane, I’m on my lane.‘
Asked if he’ll still work with anyone on MMMG in future, ‘If it’s possible, why not. If Tekno brings me a beat that I like, why not. If Selebobo brings me a beat that I like, why not,’ he said.
