Finding Tekno: Mr Eazi whips fans into search for Afropop star in his new video “Short Skirt”

Tekno, Tekno… where art thou, Tekno?

Words by Ehimenim Agweh 

If Mr Eazi thinks he can just step into Twitter and cause commotion, then unfortunately he might be right.

When Mr Eazi’s video for “Short Skirt” came out on Monday, there was applause from his fans. But the real commotion began when he challenged his legion of fans to embark on an Ultimate Search-style rampage to find one person in the video:


While some people might scoff and laugh at it, Mr Eazi offered a $1000 cash prize. That’s when the ball really started rolling and Nigerian Twitter was on the move. He even tried to offer clues to aid the search.

In spite of the best efforts of the hounds on the case, it seems like a different person might be turning up instead.
