Maintain - Anyhow



Olu (Olumide Adegbolu), Tolu (Tolu Ogunniyi) & Big Bamo (Adeboye Bammeke) formed the group Maintain which had hits like “I Catch Cold”, “Alo” & “Dormitilla”. After six albums between 1998 and 2004 the group members went their separate ways, to pursue solo careers. Olu Maintain is currently the only one with a hit so far. Tolu lost his wife earlier this year and Big Bamo recently released his solo album. The group was more of a spoof back in the day, using various American hits and adding a naija twits to it to form catchy songs. Some were just for fun while others had political under-tones and messages to the populace. It was a sad thing to see the group split (don’t they all?), but I hope they would come back sometime and give us some ore hits from the maintain vault of spoors. Here is a compilation album of all their various hits.

Enjoy!

  3. You said: "After six albums between 1998 and 2004 the group members went their separate ways, to pursue solo careers."

    It is really regrettable because they had worked together for 6 years and had 6 albums but they went their separate ways. However, we should think positively because each person will choose their own way for his better life. But, it can not be denied that many people hope that they can come back together.
