Nigerian artiste popularly known as Tekno has taken his producing skill beyond the shore of his country to produce a new single “Won’t Be Late” for American artiste, Swaelee ft Drake.
Swaelee and Drake posted the new single cover art on their Instagram page and Drake gave the producing credit by tagging Tekno.
“Won’t be Late” which was first previewed during Virgil Abloh’s set at Coachella in April, arrives just in time for summer.
The Tekno Miles produced track has Swaelee and Drake rhyming to a tropical sound.
“Saving my time for you/suddenly I freed up” sings Drake “Freezing my times with you, when I’m lonely I bring them up”
The part where Drake mentioned “Ikebe” and “Bakassi” got Nigerians excited about the new song. Listen to the song below.
Did I hear drake say “ikebe & bakasi” lmaosounds really funny so technically Tekno wrote this jam for Swae Lee #WONTBELATE
Drake legit said “Ikebe pressing on me slowly, Bakassi moving on me wassy” on Swae Lee’s “Won’t Be Late” produced by Tekno
What did Tekno teach him?
