Hollywood sign vandalised and altered to read “Hollyweed”
Security cameras have shown a man dressed in black lurking in the sign at about 3am on New Year’s Day and throwing some piece of fabric over the last two O letters in the famous Hollywood sign in Los Angeles.
One of the fabrics was decorated with a heart and the other with a peace sign.
This is the second time the sign will be altered to read Hollyweed, the first of such prank happening also on New Years Day in 1976.
Tekno thanks Upfront and Personal boss for buying into his label

We know for sure that the label mentioned here is not MMMG as label boss, Ubi Franklin is yet to share the video or acknowledge Tekno’s statement.
So will 2017 mark the end of Tekno and MMMG? We can only wait to find out.
