In the report, Budget TV quoted him as allegedly saying he did not expect anything from Kizz when he hopped on the single, however, he had to show gratitude for how much he makes.

The blog wrote: “I got on Kizz Daniel’s Buga with no sort of legal agreement. I wasn’t expecting anything from him. Wanted to be silent about this but I think some levels of gratitude deserve to be spoken of. Do y’all know Kizz Daniel sends me 50% of every revenue he generates from that song?

After his buga tour he sent me close to a Billion Naira and I was already shocked enough by that move. He didn’t end just there. Every month I receive millions as my own share of the revenue generated by Buga on streaming platforms… Kizz is a great guy I can’t lie ~ Tekno Reveals’.”

Reacting via his Twitter (X) page on Sunday, Tekno dismissed the interview as “fake”, noting that the money is not up to that amount.

On his X handle, he wrote: “Him money no reach. Anybody wey put out that fake interview, thunder fire your mama. #Talkingshit.”
