Tekno Talks Battle With GERD Disease & Life Threatening Surgery

Nigerian singer Augustine Miles Kelechi popularly called Tekno is not ready to give up on his career despite suffering health challenges as revealed in his latest interview with Cool FM OAP Daddy Freeze.

The artiste who is likely to drop a new song soon has opened up on his battle with a life threatening disease.

On his interview with Daddy Freeze, Tekno shared with fans how he has been battling seriously with some health challenges.

“To know what really happened, Watch my exclusive with #Daddyfreeze,” he posted.

Daddy freeze also wrote on his page, “Have you seen that interview with @teknoofficial? I almost cried shooting it. It is indeed one of the most emotional interviews I have ever conducted. Imagine losing the greatest tool God blessed you with? Even @machdonalde agrees that it’s a touching story.”

In the interview, Tekno talks about battling for months with an irritated vocal cord that could no longer help him talk well or sing and how he has visited from various orthodox and unorthodox clinics for solutions. He also shared his journey of going through a life-threatening surgical procedure that he said is irreversible.

Tekno was eventually diagnosed with Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease and after a series of test which was painful to watch him describe in the video, he had to go through a surgical procedure called Esophagogastric dissociation.

    Sorry Tekno!
    God is in control. For reflux disease, know what irritates your eosophagus, eat early, refrain from oily foods, no alcohol. Omeprazole is OTC medication, it controls the disease.
    In US, it’s very easy to treat. My mom was mis-diagnosed in LUTH in 2005.
    God saved her life. I take her for endoscopic eosophageal balloon dillation, like every two years.

    A HEALTHY MAN MAY not fully appreciate what a blessing it is! Please recover soon! They call it gastro-what? Sickness don plenty pass away people o(in the voice of One and Only, Bench).

    NOT TO FORGET that vocal cord problem, I wonder what exactly it is. For many years now, I have been battling a vocal condition I hope it would not get to this point. I speak well, and I sing very very well. But the problem is that I cannot sustain that voice for more than 3–5mins of continuous singing without having to rest my vocal cords(By the way, I’m talking about classical songs). My voice cracks easily, recovers easily, after some 50–60secs, only to crack again once I resume singing. I don’t know what solution holds out there for me.
