Top Five Group Break-ups that Broke the Heart of Nigerian Music Fans

It is so much wonder why it is always difficult to find that one music alliance that sticks together against the odds. One would easily guess that the strength of the human nature surpasses every other bond which makes it almost impossible for music groups to stick together.

Thinking of the quality of music that we have enjoyed from music groups in the past, we thought it wise to put together, a list of group break up that shook the industry.

Plantashun Boyz: It is particularly sad that the group that produced Tuface who went on to become a legend in the African Music industry couldn’t make it to see better days. The group which consisted of Faze, Blackface and Tuface disbanded after they all decided to go solo. Sadly, not all of them could make it on their own as it is only Tuface that is still active in the industry. The group released two albums; Body and Soul(2000) and Sold Out(2003) before their breake up.

Zule Zoo was another music group that rocked the Nigerian music scene as they recorded huge success when they came into limelight. The Kerewa crooners, Ibrahim Hassan and Michael Aboh took the country to her feet with the single (Kerewa) which the National Broadcast Commission banned from radio and TV stations. This didn’t stop the ‘crowd pleaser’ from making waves as it continued to trend even after the ban. The group finally disbanded for irreconcilable differences with only one of the duo trying without much success to remain in the music scene as Ibro Zule Zoo

Style Plus was a group that was so loved particularly by ladies for their looks and tunes which makes it almost impossible for them to be forgotten by their lovers even after their break up. Having lost Lanre, one of the group’s founders, Shifi, Omoefe, Zeal and Tunde remained as a group and went on to serenade Nigerians with songs like “Olufunmi,” “Runaway,” “Iya Basira,” “Imagine That”among others before they separated because Tunde left to pursue a solo career.

Mo Hits, the energetic music group/record label which was co-owned by Micheal Collins (Don Jazzy) and Dapo Oyebanjo D’bang succeeded in giving us very good music that will certainly rock the dance hall whenever in comes on play but they didn’t succeed in defying the odds as they split up due to differences between the owners. This led them to forming two different groups; Mavin Records and DB Records. The group consisted of Wande Coal, D’Prince, Dr. Sid and K-Switch.

Psquare’s breakup which of course is the most recent broke the hearts o so many fans and still have some hoping and praying that the twins will find a level ground and go back to making music together as one just the way they have come to be accepted. Having broken up last year, the Okoye brothers come back to do a song together but their reconciliation didn’t last long as they hit us again with news of another break up, this time, with video evidence and an official letter of termination of appointment.

If twin brothers cannot make a successful music group, one keeps wondering; who then will?
