AFTERMATH OF MAINTAIN’S FALLOUT
Tolu Goes Back to Senator-Dad
Olu now an Attaché
Big Bamo Opens Pub
Big Bamo, the architect turned music promoter who was the backbone behind the singing duo, Tolu and Olu popularly referred to as Maintain has repositioned with the recent opening of a pub in a highbrow area in Lagos.
For those who have not heard, Maintain has become extinct and the members have all moved on with their private lives.
The latest gist in town about the award winning Maintain group's separation is that, Tolu has now hearkened to the voice of his Senator dad who has repeatedly informed him to find something else to do.
Reason is that the old man does not see anything the sickle cell aneamic has benefited so far from his incursion into music some six years back. Though, Tolu, obviously carried away by the fleeting fame that came with his membership of Maintain was not too disposed to his father's earlier warning to leave music and seek greener pastures, has now seen reasons with his dad.
For Olu, the egotistic half of the group who carved a larger than life image for himself at the height of the group's popularity despite his not-too-rosy background, we learnt, has attached himself to some up and coming music acts for 'small-small show' just to get by.
Bamo's makeshift tavern, on the other hand, is beginning to enjoy reasonable patronage, all thanks to his wife who spiced up the hostelry with the Ofada rice she sells to customers.
