Nigerian Singer, Augustine Miles Kelechi, popularly known as Tekno, has disclosed that he moved out of his home country and is now based in the United States.
Speaking via a video on Instagram on Sunday, he revealed that he left Nigeria because the country's name was “changed” to UAR.
He, however, said that he would only return when the name 'goes back to Nigeria.
“Y'all already know I moved out of Nigeria since they called it UAR. I'm not from UAR or a supporter of that.
“I'm a Nigerian and I will only come back when the country becomes Nigeria again but for now I'm based in the United States,” he said.
Nigeria's Dailypost reported earlier that the UAR name started after the country's House of Representatives received a proposal to change Nigeria's name to UAR, which suggests the United African Republic or the United Alkebulan Republic, on June 2.
Tekno is however not ready to be part of any UAR country.
