About their career, this is what they has to say:
Well, that is a gift from our creator, God Almighty, because we grew up in the streets. We were not born with golden spoon or raised in so called Government Reserved Areas (GRA) because our father, a middle class man musician allowed us to mix up well with the people while we’re growing up. That helped us to pass through the street life, schools and from there; we came to know the exact happenings in the country today. We thank God for that and that is where our inspirations to write our songs are coming from always.
While growing up as you said in the streets, did it ever occur to you people that one day you will become music stars or something great?
Infact, that thought never came into our minds then. We’re just living to survive and to be alive tomorrow. But what we will be, we never knew. And you can notice it from our songs. We used what we experienced that happened around us to compose our songs.

These guys will definitely go far. Even here in western Nigeria their songs are so popular. Modern version of Osadebe. Their lyrics are so matured you would think they are some 50s dudes.
