The huge UK boy based boy band One Direction has already earned a lot of money given the fact that they are still new in the entertainment business and it’s actually quite impressive. And recently, their seem-to-be rival band 5 Seconds of Summer is climbing up the charts and they are not phased by it that they even encourage fans to support them. Why? Well in a latest UK Mirror news, Louis Tomlinson along with Liam Payne said to have invested in their rival band and are even directors of the company that the band is under with. Now it figures.
There are documents to prove that other bandmates like Harry Styles, Zayn Malik and Niall Horan also own half the percentage of the profits with a 10 % share each in the said trademark company that is working with 5 Seconds of Summer. This could probably piss off fans when they were asked to support the new band by One Direction themselves.
5 Seconds of Summer is from Australia and is composed of Calum Hood, Michael Clifford, Luke Hemmings and Ashton Irwin. The One Direction boys are seen to frequently mention the band on their tweets like this tweet from Louis saying, ” Hearing @5SOS on the radio is a great way to start my day. Proud of you lads!!” And then Liam also had this tweet saying, “New @5SOS single ‘Don’t Stop’ is out now! Loving the tracks guys, go check it out.” In our opinion, they’re just protecting their investment. What about your opinion?
