In recent times, fans have compared Tekno the former TripleMG co-owner and “Your Waist” hit maker who has now become a Marvin Records Star. Speaking on the issue, Iyanya noted that he wouldn’t be envious of his former recruit, who he and Ubi Franklin brought into the TrippleMG label and nurtured until he became great. Iyanya debunked rumors of him being envious of Tekno in a chat with Saturday Beats where he said;

“I am so happy for Tekno and his success and I am not surprised. At a point, we were all together and this is a young guy that works very hard. He worked every night and when we woke up in the morning, he would still be working. So, I am not surprised that he has finally made it. I believe this is just the beginning and there are much more things to come his way.”

“When he came to Triple MG, he sprayed his hair gold and anytime I wanted to call him, I referred to him as a golden boy. I am very happy he is doing great things. How would I be envious of somebody that Ubi Franklin and I raised from our platform? We used our platform to promote him and I cannot be envious of him; there is no need for that. People would always try to say negative things but we are very fine.”

Fans are still of the opinion that Iyanya can’t help being envious of Tekno, being that he once had the whole African continent with his “Kukere” dance moves but has now lost the continent to his former recruit, Tekno. But the singer maintains that he can’t be envious of someone he practically raised. Speaking further, Iyanya confirmed his rumored link with Roc Nation. He said;

“I have a distribution deal with Roc Nation and VP Record and they have some of my songs that they have picked for their market. Even though the songs are for their market, they still represent Nigeria and Africa but those are the ones that they understand and can relate to.”
