2017 is off to a Great Start for Tekno as he Finalizes his $4 Million Deal with Sony Entertainment



Nigerian act Tekno‘s Year has kicked off on a good note as he is done signing the dotted lines on his contract with Sony Entertainment and has officially closed the deal which is reportedly worth 4 Million dollars!

The TripleMG artist has indeed hit the jackpot, as Paul Okoye of Upclose and Personal took to his Instagram to share a video of himself, the artist & Ubi Franklin joking about looking satisfied and happy captioning it “Sony money 2Good”.

We can’t wait to hear what the superstar has in store for us this year.

    $4 million? Yeah right! These Nigerian artistes can over hype for Africa. Artistes like Future, Jessy J, etc haven’t bagged $4 million contracts, it is one B-list Nigerian artiste that they’ll sign $4 million for.

      its not hate. its common sense. sony didnt even sign rick ross for 4 million or not even the cheesy rapper desiigner. so why in the world would an afrobeat musician from africa get signed for close to 200 million naira. where is the return on investment? only people that get that kind of investment are platinum selling artists. we aint even touched gold yet.

      nigerians need to stop believing everything the media publishes. 70 percent of nigerian artistes still live in rented homes, drive luxury cars way higher than their rent and hustle via politicians and wealthy people. its all make-believe.

      i rememba dey said the same thing about the tiwa savage deal with pepsi and mtn. next thing we knew was dat she used to live in 1004, then lekki then she was asking where in the world she was gonna get tee billz debt money…….

      people on the island kno wat i am saying.

      $4m is over a Billion Naira, not 200m

      $4m seems like a lot of money, but in reality it may not be. The artist typically gets 15 – 20% of the money as his/her “advance”. The remaining 80% will be used for other things such as promotion and marketing, tour support, recording and video production. Also factoring in the fact that Ubi is Techno’s manager, he’ll have to get paid- and that will come out of Techno’s allowance. Techno, may only be going away with about $350,000 – $680,000; which isn’t small money to be fair. Also, we do not know the Ts & Cs of the contract, so that amount might be exaggerated to consider the “best possible scenario” due to such a deal.

      All in all, Techno’s made progress and that’s what count.

      UpClose and Personal will get a sizeable percentage of the takehome cash first, maybe 30%, before they start sharing anything
