Nigeria: Twin-X Dump Large House for M & C

Lagos — Taiwo and Kehinde Isaac-Toye, also known as Twin-X, have said that they quit X Large House for M & C Music because they were used as sacrificial lambs for a musical group called Maintain.

The identical twins, who recently released an album entitled Plenty Money, said Big Bamo made them play the second fiddle to Maintain after their hit single entitled Mother Mi in 2001.

"Maintain had a better deal while we were denied the perks that accompanied a recording deal," they said.

Continuing, the twins said with the new-found fortune of Maintain on the music scene, Big Bamo, the CEO of X Large House also became a visible part of the group and it became a three-man affair. In an attempt to boost their musical career, the duo sought greener pasture with M & C Music and this paid off when the show promoters/label owners, Mike Disu and Charles Odunlami signed them on recently.

Their album, Plenty Money, comprises eight tracks with songs like Miliki, a remix of Chief Commander Ebenezer Obey's Miliki Express, Cinderella, Mother Mi, Ninu ile, Plenty Money, the title track and Until I Meet You featuring ace producer OJB.
