'Alanta' singing duo of Ice K and Adx of ArtQuake rocked the Nigerian air waves with various danceable hit track songs in the late 90s and are still relevant in the industry as they are currently working on their album which will soon be out before the end of the year 2015.

In a recent chat with Qed, on how they have been able to stay together in an industry where groups are seen parting ways, Adx explained that maturity is the key thing that keeps them together as they have grown past women and money which to him is sometimes the issue.

According to him, “We've gone beyond money, women and things like that. It's all about understanding and maturity.”

Adx who is married and blessed with two kids likewise his partner, pointed out that the new crop of artistes these days do not sing for their songs to be evergreen but for popularity sake which is why they continue to rush to the studio to make new songs all the time.

“The creativity and continuity. Creativity in the sense that many of these young artistes just want to be commercial, and sing a song that'll make them popular. That's why you'll often see them dropping songs that are totally different. It wasn't like that in our days. When we dropped a song, it would go for a very long time and people will enjoy it before we release another one because we would give it the chance to be evergreen. But now, when artistes drop songs, they're always eager to release another. They're not even thinking about whether one day the song will become evergreen,” he said.
