Antwi D. Garley of Antwi Ni Antwi has opened up about their finances when they were a duo.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with Togo Borga on GH entertainment, on Rainbow Radio 87.5FM, the musician said working under a record label is not the best because you would be cheated and deprived of what is rightfully yours.

Antwi Garley suggested it would be best for musicians to manage themselves instead of working under a record label.

The musician told the host they were only given 10 percent per cassette out the of the sales from their major hit tracks.

He said there were under Odwianoma, a record label and produced two albums but they had to go their separate ways because the owner refused to give them front money.

”I can confidently state that no musician who worked under a record label during our time succeeded until they started managing themselves.”

He said they worked on Sekina and Uncle Ebo but they only got 8 million old cedis from Sekina despite its huge success.

He added that they later worked on their own album, Aku Sika and asked the record label to promote it but he refused and together with the media, they worked against them making it difficult for the album to succeed.

He stated that the failure of their third album led to financial difficulties and in 2008, he fell seriously ill leading to the group falling apart.

He said since 2008, they have not been able to release any song as a duo.

Antwi Ne Antwi, made up of two brothers – David and Michael Kofi Antwi – thrilled music lovers with several hit songs including Sekina, Congo Soldier, and Uncle Ebo.

They worked on five albums, which included, Dwene Wo Ho (2000), Sekina (2002), and Uncle Ebo (2003) to their credit.
