Titled “ZOMBIE”, Tunde Obe announced to surprised media practitioners this week that new song is for the love-sick folks because it is a song that has to do with two people who are in love and can’t do without each other.
The announcement did not only declare that the duos are back for good, it also brought to fore that those speculating that they had quit music for TV were very wrong.
“We have not left music. Music is our first love, we have been recording new song and in fact we are ready to roll, we are too legit to quit, we won’t do that to our fans, we owe it to them and we can’t leave them hanging” Wunmi Obe said as if to assure worrying fans who have besieged her with enquiries since news broke that the couple were calling it quits with music.
The new single was produced by Sean Keyz. The title of the forthcoming album has not been announced yet. According to their publicist Ayeni Adekunle, “All those other details will be known soon. All we just want to do now is let people know that contrary to widespread speculations, these couples we all love so much are not quitting music. Not now, not tomorrow, not ever.”
T.W.O started as lead singers in a campus band “Turning point” in the 80s, and got popular nationwide with their popular weekly television performance on the Charly Boy Show and Zoom tine.
Zombie is T.W.O’s first material since their monstrous hit “Mogbomoya” which established them as “A bridge between the old and the new school”.
