Tekno and Lola Rae are not married. The duo have been dating for several years and even have a daughter together but they are yet to make it to the altar.
Talented Nigerian singer and songwriter Tekno Miles, whose real name is Augustine Miles Kelechi, has been linked to several beauteous women over the course of his career. While some of them are his fellow singers, others are models and video vixens.
Tekno joined the league of single daddies in the music industry in 2018 when he welcomed a baby girl with Nigerian-born singer and dancer Lola Rae. Subsequently, he dubbed himself “womanizer for life.” As a result, his list of girlfriends is expected to be quite long. However, the singer is very good at keeping his romantic affairs under wraps. As such, very few of his romantic partners are known.
Even though he is known to be dating Lola Rae for some years now, the two have been reported on several occasions to have called it quits. With Tekno keeping his love life on the low key, it’s quite unclear whether he has separated from the ‘Come and See’ crooner or they are still entangled in the web of love. That said, here’s the gist of Tekno’s romantic affair with Lola and his relationship history.
Tekno and Lola Rae Have Been Together For Over Four Years
After people noticed that Tekno and Lola Rae were spending more time together, rumors about the two being an item began making rounds in early 2017. Later, in July 2017, the ‘Duro’ singer posted a picture of himself and Rae on Instagram with a caption of a love emoji. Thus, he made the relationship public. It’s still uncertain when the lovebirds got acquainted and how they met. Nonetheless, they have gone ahead to build a family together. Lola Rae and his heartthrob welcomed a baby girl christened Skye Yaa Amaka Kelechi on March 24, 2018.
The pair have been doting parents to their daughter since she was born. Although Tekno’s official Instagram account is set on private, pictures of the ‘Pana’ crooner spending time with his little one floods his Instagram fan page. Going by the photos, it’s apparent that he shares a strong bond with Skye as he makes time from his tight schedule to be with her in London. Lola also shares with her fans photos of herself and Skye on her Instagram handle. She refers to her daughter as her best friend, and the two are quite close. Tekno and Lola Rae have been dating for more than three years and are yet to make it to the altar.
The Ups and Downs of Their Relationship
On many occasions, rumors of Tekno and Lola Rae breaking up have circulated on the internet, and this has been contributed by some eyebrow-raising comments made by the ‘Enjoy’ singer. In January 2020, Tekno tweeted about being a womanizer for life, and the comment left people wondering if he was still dating Lola Rae. He also made a controversial statement in a video he released in 2016, where he said it’s not possible for a man to date only one woman; as such, guys should allow their girlfriends to cheat on them once in a while.
Having caused an uproar in media with his statement and receiving heavy backlash, Tekno later retracted his comments and cited it as only a joke. He reportedly gifted his baby mama with a 2020 Range Rover Velar valued at $177,000 in February 2020.
