Tekno Miles is among the top 20 wealthiest musicians in Nigeria according to his net worth. He is a singer, performer, producer, and dancer from Nigeria who is well known for his distinctive dancing abilities and his ability to mix them with strong lyrical content. He is one of the emerging performers from the new generation that will shake up Nigeria's entertainment scene.

 In 2012, veteran comedian Julius Agwu noticed him at an event in Abuja. The well-known comedian encouraged him to pursue his talent after noticing it in him. Years after that interaction with the comedian, he currently sits atop the Nigerian music charts and is the recipient of numerous honors.


In Bauchi State, Nigeria, on December 17, 1992, Augustine Miles Kelechi Edgar was born. He is a native of eastern Nigeria's Ebonyi State. The family, which was fathered by a soldier, moved throughout the north several times as a result of the job postings of the family's head. Due to his passion for music-related arts, he began studying the acoustic guitar and other instruments at the young age of 8 in a music school.

Music Career

When he first entered the Nigerian music industry, he signed with the record label K-money entertainment. He released his 
debut single, "Holiday," through the label. Before this, he met Iyanya and his manager Ubi Franklin at the same event where Julius Agwu first noticed him. They recommended he move to Lagos, where a wealth of prospects awaited him.

After remixing Ice Prince's "Oleku" and renaming it "onye ne kwu," he followed their instructions and arrived in Lagos on October 5, 2013. He joined the "Made Men Music" record label group and released the singles "Dancing" and "Anything" under their banner.

Tekno’s Major Breakthrough

As he released the popular song "Duro" on June 18, 2015, he experienced a significant breakthrough. The response was overwhelming, and it spent a considerable amount of time at the top of radio playlists across the nation. It was regarded as one of the best songs both domestically and abroad.

On November 15 of the same year, he went on to remix the song with prominent performers and fellow Easterners including "Flavour" and the legendary rapper "Phyno". He wasn't going to let up on his determination to succeed, so on the 20th, just a few weeks after the "Duro" remix, he dropped yet another massive smash single. The song was created by Coublon, a DJ with outstanding beats who hasn't published an album but has made roughly 17 excellent tracks and appeared on numerous other albums and singles.

He was a 2016 Headies nominee for the Next rated award. This didn't sit well with him, and he blasted the awards' organizers and accused them of being unfair. The credibility of the Headies awards was called into question as a result.
