Singer. Songwriter. Record producer. Dancer. Model. Actress. Ciara Princess Harris packs them all. The millennial recently took to her Instagram page to announce her collaboration with “panama” crooner Alhaji Tekno.
She wrote: “ciara#FreakMe Ft @TeknoOfficial out this Friday! Been dying to share this with you! Can’t wait! #AfroBeats #AfroWave #FreakMeFriday 08.10.18.”
Ciara, who was born October 25, 1985 and who counts Janet Jackson among her influences, started her music career in the girl group called Hearsay.
The group disbanded shortly after due to irreconcilable differences. She went on to solo career, churning out hits such as “Goodies,” “1, 2 Step,” and “Oh.”
Gifted Nigerian rapper Alhaji Tekno has certainly got a stubborn star, one that easily brushes aside adversity and shines on.
Tekno, who recently has the honour of hearing his song “Jogodo” named as inspiration for Canadian rapper Drake’s monster hit “Scorpion,” was signed to the Universal Music Group two months ago.
Tekno’s other recent collaborations include Danfo Drivers, Django23 for “Sugar Daddie,” and Kcee for “Boo”
He may not admit it openly, but his collaboration with Ciara may be his own “big bag alert,” or, if we should stretch imagery a little, “big picture alert,” as it would increase his appeal globally as a singer of note – and this means more cheddah. As in, more dough. Same thing as, well, more money.
