RESONANCE BREAKS UP
They’ve been the subject of national adulation. They’ve won awards in Lagos while lounging in Enugu. They’ve got a future as bright as a trip to the sun. Unfortunately, the duo of Esther ‘E-Star’ Abigbo and Uche ‘Gucheano’ Ozoigbo, of Resonance fame, have decided to squander it all- by toeing the worn path of break up.
Abigbo and Gucheano, who are rumoured to be cousins, will no longer be recording or performing together, according to Gucheano who confirmed this in Lagos two weeks back. Though he refused to give reasons for the separation, a source close to him alleged he is ‘bitter’ for ‘doing all the work while Esther gets all the credit’.
Details of their partnership remains unknown, but while Resonance lasted, many fans were unaware the band was a duo or group. Many automatically believed Resonance was Esther Abigbo.
Gucheano has already confirmed plans to kick start a solo career. And shortly after he confirmed the break up, he was spotted meeting a talent and event managers in Lagos. It remains uncertain if he has made any deal yet.
The name Resonance became popular when TV music shows bombarded viewers with the video for ‘chinwe ike’ off the duo’s album of same title.
The seven-tracked album was released by Resonance records and marketed by Ahbu Ventures.
