Nigerian singer and winner of the first season of
Project Fame West Africa, Iyanya Onoyom Mbuk,
known by his mononym Iyanya, has insisted he is
not jealous of Tekno’s success and says he is not
surprised at how his career has risen.
In an interview with Saturday Beats, When asked if
he is envious of Tekno’s success, the singer simply
smiled and said he had always believed Tekno
whom he dubbed ‘Golden boy’ would succeed in

He said,
“I am so happy for Tekno and his success and I am
not surprised. At a point, we were all together and
this is a young guy that works very hard. He
worked every night and when we woke up in the
morning, he would still be working.

So, I am not surprised that he has finally made it. I
believe this is just the beginning and there are
many more things to come his way. When he came
to Triple MG, he sprayed his hair gold and anytime
I wanted to call him, I referred to him as golden
boy. I am very happy he is doing great things.’
How would I be envious of somebody that Ubi
Franklin and I raised from our platform? We used
our platform to promote him and I cannot be
envious of him; there is no need for that. People
would always try to say negative things but we are
very fine.”
