Danfo Drivers speak on meeting with Tekno.
Rested Nigerian music group, Danfo Drivers have been on the news for a while now after they spoke out angrily against Tekno. This is because they felt cheated by Tekno who used their early 2000’s hit track ‘Jogodo’, without their permission.
After granting an interview where they threatened to deal with the young singer, pictures of them surfaced online. This made some people believe that they have settled themselves and possible compensation has been made.
One half of the duo, Mountain Black, has however revealed that they did not take any money from Tekno. According to him, they agreed to work together on a remix of the song.
We didn’t collect any money from Tekno; you can ask him. The deed has been done; we cannot reverse it any longer. He planned to release the video of the song last week.
He asked if he could go ahead and we gave him our permission. But I told him we could do a remix later.”
Mountain Black said they wouldn’t have spoken out angrily if he had treated them well. According to him, they had earlier agreed that they would see at the Eko Hotel in Lagos after the Headies Award but he refused to pick their calls.
“Why would you release a job without telling the owner of the song? When he called that he wanted to see us, I told him we were busy but we should meet at the Headies and he said it was okay.
We were invited for the Headies at the Eko Hotel and he lives very close.
On that day, we called him and he was not picking up. That was why I granted an interview where I said we were looking for Tekno.
“Last week Wednesday, he called that he was coming to see us in Abuja.
So, he came down to Abuja and apologised for what he did. I told him we were not interested in his money but we wanted him to work together with us as a team.
