Duplicate entries in SQL database

Hello i have attached my code for inserting a record below.
I have a checkbox which determines whether you are adding one or two clients.
If i add 1 client it works fine and just one record is added however if i tick the checkbox to add two clients i get 4 entries in the database - a duplicate for each client. I should also say that client 1 goes in twice and THEN client 2 goes in twice. Can anybody see why?

In the Else condition, you are simply executing the
                objCommand.ExecuteNonQuery()
In the IF condition you are executing the query twice
                objCommandtwo.ExecuteNonQuery()
                IDtwo = objCommandtwo.ExecuteScalar()
