Mp3bullet.ng presents Nigerian Music groups we would love to see back together.
These Nigerian music groups caused a lot of heartbreaks for fans after they disbanded and went their separate way.
There was a time in the industry that music groups were dominating the industry and changing the landscape of the music scene.
However, as the music industry became to evolve so did personal interests causing a lot of groups to dissolve and go their separate ways.
We are unable to avoid recalling beloved musical bands whose dissolution crushed hearts across the nation.
Here are 10 musical groups—ranging from Mo’hits to TrybesMen—that we miss and would dearly like to see reunited:
- A look into Nigerian Music Groups that have broken up
- Best Collaboration Duos in the Nigerian Music Industry
Nigeria lost one of the best music collectives in history in 2012 when co-founder and producer Don Jazzy announced their breakup on social media after nearly ten years in the business.
Everyone broke apart from the organisation, blaming each other and citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for its dissolution.
Fans will never again hear club bangers from the Don Jazzy, D’banj, Ikechukwu, Wandecoal, Kayswitch, and Dr. SID collective, who won their hearts with their outstanding performances.
They had some of the best songs ever, including You Bad, Booty Call, Pere, Be Close To You, and Ten Ten.
The group had a brief comeback when they performed together for the first time since the split on 27 December 2017 at Davido’s show tagged “30Billion Concert.”
Innocent Idibia (2Baba), Chibuzor Oji (Faze), and Ahmedu Augustine Obiano (Black Faze) formed Plantashun Boiz, a powerful trio in the music industry.
This R&B/Hip-hop boy band was one of the most well-known musical acts of the decade.
Three outstanding guys who emerged as the leading voices of the new school were introduced to a generation of young music enthusiasts through the songs they wrote, which mixed elements of pop, rap, and reggae.
The band released three albums together and is well known for songs like Say You Believe Me, You and I, and Plantashun Boiz.
Their songs sold out like wildfire. They topped charts across the country, diverted attention from the dominant old genres, and used the Nigerian pop sound to get unprecedented amounts of airplay on radio stations, practically serving as a model for how to make the music as commercially sustainable as possible.
However, the trio disbanded in 2004 when 2Baba decided to pursue a solo career. His iconic solo debut album, Face2Face, featured the hit song African Queen, which served as the catalyst for his rise to prominence as one of Africa’s top entertainers.
While Black faze switched from R&B to reggae music, which also helped him get a lot of street respect and love, Faze released his debut album, Faze Alone, which went on to sell 1.2 million copies.
Regardless of their individual success, we would still love to see them together.
Shifi Emoefe, Tunde Akinsanmi, Yemi Akinwonmi, and Lanre Faneyi were the founding members; STYL is an acronym for their first names.
When Lanre Faneyi passed away in 1998, Zeal Onyechem took over and altered the group’s name to Styl-Plus, with the “Plus” signifying the new member.
However, Yemi Akinwonmi quit the group in 2002, leaving Shifi Omoefe, Zeal Onyecheme, and Tunde Akinsanmi as a trio.
They were responsible for the number-one songs Olufunmi, Runaway, Iya Basira, and Imagine dat.
Styl-plus officially split up soon after the release of the song “Four years dun waka,” and Tunde went on to seek a solo career.
As die-hard fans, we still long for the musical group that stole our hearts in the early 2000s.
The Remedies, which consisted of Tony Tetuila, Eedris Abdulkareem, and Eddie Remedy, were extremely well-known in the 1990s thanks to their popular songs Shakomo and Omoge.
They even had a contract with Kennis Music, the largest record company in Nigeria at the time.
Due to insurmountable differences, the group broke up.
While Eedris Abdulkareem continued to be in the public eye with songs like Oko Omoge, Mr Lecturer, and Jaga Jaga, Tetuila rose to fame with songs like Omode Meta, Morning Time, Hit My Car, and My Heart Go Jigijigi. Eddy Remedy has been out in the public eye for some time.
Popularly referred to as “The Boys from Ibadan,” Olu Maintain, Tolu, and Big Bamo dominated the Nigerian music industry with hits like “I Catch Cold” and “Nibo la wa gbe lo.”
Olu Maintain went on to release Yahooze after the trio disbanded in 2005. While Tolu concentrated on his work as a banker, Big Bamo released Fi jo ko wo je and Popotiti.
They are sometimes referred to as Da Trybe and are frequently referred to as “one of the pioneers of hip hop in Nigeria.”
eLDee, Kaboom, and Freestyle—the group’s founding three members—met in 1994. In 1999, they published L.A.G Style Volume 1, which received positive reviews. Trybal Marks and Shake Bodi were among their hits.
After the group disbanded, eLDee and Freestyle each released a solo album.
- Top 5 songs from Naija music groups of the early 2000s
- Top Nigerian Artist-Producer Duos in the music industry
They were a gospel group that rose to fame in 2007 after releasing the successful singles Olori Oko, Aye Ole, and Only Praise.
They only released one album after the departure of Kehinde Akinbode, now known as K’ore, who later admitted that members of the gospel group were not practising what they preached.
Following his departure, the group of four men made an effort to remain together, but they were not as noticeable as they had been.
