Nigerian Singer, Augustine Miles Kelechi, popularly known as Tekno, has announced the reason behind his relocation to the United States.
In a video he uploaded on his Instagram account on Sunday, Tekno revealed that he left Nigeria because the country’s name was “changed” to UAR.
On June 2 the House of Representatives received a proposal to change Nigeria’s name to UAR, which suggests United African Republic or United Alkebulan Republic.
The singer said he would only return when the name ‘goes back’ to Nigeria.
“Y’all already know I moved out of Nigeria since they called It UAR. I’m not from UAR or a supporter of that.
“I’m a Nigerian and I will only come back when the country becomes Nigeria again but for now I’m based in the United States,” wrote said.
