Nigeria’s Legendary Music Group And “Alanta” Crooner, Artquake Finally Gets Recognised (photos)
Long before the likes of Olamide, Davido, Wizkid and even Psquare, one musical duo that was entertaining Nigerians at the inception of the current Nigerian music revolution were Artquake.
From churning out major hits such as ‘Abule l’awa’ to ‘Sa ma gbadun nitire’, and ‘Everybody are you ready’, the duo of Adegbite Adeniran a.k.a ADX and Tomomewo Olakunle a.k.a ICE-K together known as Artquake are about the longest serving music group and guess, what they were devoid of any controversy.
They’ve remained together and although having won a couple of awards, it is sad that this group has never gotten the type of recognition they deserved having paved way for many musical groups in Nigeria that can’t even weather the storms of the industry like they (Artquake) have.
This past weekend, it was the night of Artquake at the just concluded prestigious City People Music Awards as the group bagged the “Life Time Achievement” awards amidst much delight from everyone. Among the top acts that won awards that night was Mavin queen, Tiwa Savage, who was present at the event.
