Before the advent of hip hop, there had been serious of music group break ups. Then, it was so common in the Juju music world. The days of Prince Adekunle and Shina Peters etc are typical examples of the music group split in the 20th century.

In this new generation music group, we first look at the Plantashun Bois who partly pioneered the new generation of music group. Barely a few years of their boisterous outing, they split with Faze, 2face and black face going solo. Before this, the Remedies comprises of Idris Abdukareem, Tony Tetuila and Eddy Montana too, first had their first break, then Plantashun Bois followed. Ever since, music group break in Nigeria has become a norm in the entertainment arena.

Remember the famous D'banj – Don Jazzy / Mo'hits drama? Whoever thought that would happen. Even the now world famous 2Face Idibia was once a member of the Plantashun boiz and individuals and groups like Styl Plus, Eedris Abdulkareem, KC, P Square and Bracket have been through a time of splitting and patting ways in their musical careers.
These breakups usually confer great benefits to one party and major loss to the other party. However, in a few scenarios it has been of great benefit to the both parties that split.

Just recently, Wizkid expressed dissatisfaction with the Banky W led E.M.E records indicating strong intentions to dump his longtime friend Skales and new label mates, Niyola and Shaydeeboi whom their fans had seen as one big, strong musical family.
While this is still a shocker, observers and critics say splits and breakups in the Nigerian music industry has been in existence for a long time and will continue to happen in the ever evolving music scene.Why would Wizkid leave E.M.E or P Square decide to part ways with May D? has discovered that the reason for all these break ups is just inability to manage stardom, over bloating egos and greed.
