olu likes his girlsOne-half and most visible of rested pop group Maintain, Olumide Adegbulu a.k.a. Olu Maintain has released his debut solo album on May 14, 2007. The Lagos-based artiste who parted ways with his cousin Tolu Ogunniyi in 2005 shortly after a UK show is finally embarking on a solo recording career after it became clear that Maintain may not make it back together. Though there had been speculations that the duo, along with their protégé Big Bamo (‘Boye Bameke) were negotiating a come-back, sources close to the acts maintain there has been nothing of such. ‘Fine, Tolu was calling Bamo at a time, but I don’t think he and Olu are thinking of coming back together. Tolu is not even based in Lagos and Olu has already started recording his own album’, said a source privy to inside information. Olu’s album titled ‘Yahoozy’ will be released on the singer’s own label ‘reloaded records’ and marketed by Afrobest Productions. Cuts like ‘Fatima, Yahoozeey and Fantasy are already finding their way to DJS’ playlists, and may be the first hits to leap off the album.
Meanwhile Olu is not the only one preparing to release his own body of work. Big Bamo has also released a video for his first single ‘popoti’, in preparation for an album that is scheduled to feature his kid.
Maintain found their way to the limelight after meeting Big Bamo who financed their recordings and shot innovative videos for their early songs: Domittila (a remake of LL Cool J’s ‘doing it wild’) and Blah. Almost overnight, they were winning awards, getting rave reviews and gathering a community of fans despite critics’ constant hostility due to their excessive sampling and interpolations – they even got ‘dissed’ by rapper Ruggedman on his historic Ehen Pt. 1
