Where are all the Nigerian music groups?
Plantashun Boiz, Styl Plus, P-Square are some of the brilliant groups that have graced the Nigerian entertainment scene.

The Nigerian entertainment scene was once buzzing with music groups.

Trybesmen, Plantashun Boiz, Remedies, Maintain, KUSH, and Styl Plus to name a few, were some of the prominent collectives but over time, the number of amazingly talented music groups has dwindled.

Music groups always evoke excitement about them, as the individuals involved bring different unique talents to the table, although the risk of a group member being relegated to the background exists.

On the music scene today, there is a clear decline in groups, with P-Square about the only relevant group. And even they have up split on many occasions.

With a right mix of different talents, young acts can benefit from building a chemistry with others or even learn a huge deal.
