We Are Back And Better- Alanta Crooners, Artquake

Alanta' song and dance inventors, Artquake which comprises of ADX, real name Adegbite Adeniran and ICE-K real name Tomomewo Olakunle have bounced back into the fiercely competitive Nigerian music industry.
The duo who started their musical career in 1995 while they were in the higher institution, released their debut album in 2000 titled NEVER ENDING which consist of hit tracks like Abulelawa, Shamagbadun and Anycolour, but after a while they went hiatus.
Although one of their hit tracks ‘ALANTA' gave them global recognition ahead of their fellow artistes, they don't want to keep riding on their glory.

In a recent interview, they boldly stated that they are not threatened or intimidated by young artist of these days, but follow back to 'maintain their lane'.
“No, never, the sky is big enough to accommodate anybody, we have been here before some of them, we have our fan base, we can't because its not important, don't forget, every product has its market, we are just like the BRT bus, we are on our lane and they are on their lane, so we have no reason to be intimidated, no body is competition with anybody. The good thing is that, they respect us because we mind our business, so no need for intimidation or feeling intimidated”.
On what have kept them binding over the years they said.  “So many people have asked that question, its been God and understanding, we understand ourselves very well, not like we don't have issues, but we don't let a third party come in. I meet my partner in 1995, that's about 20years now, then we were doing our ND program in Kwara state polytechnic. I remember how music is been done then, very stressful, nobody to help you, it was very difficult recording songs then, my partner and I understands ourselves because we were friends before becoming partner. For the other group that got separated, obviously the only thing that brought them together was money, they didn't see beyond money, they didn't understand themselves well. I believe we are still together because we see ourselves as brothers, friends and partner. Not like we don't have issues, we do, but understanding, tolerance and maturity has been our watch-word."
In their latest singles, the elated fathers featured artistes like Oritse Femi, Sound Sultan, Reminisce and more famous stars.
