4 bigger musical siblings who broke up before P-Square


Nigerian twins, Peter and Paul Okoye of P-Square, are all but over as a music duo.

This follows the recent wish of Peter to terminate his contract with the group for safety reasons.

The brothers, who have been taking shots at one another on social media in recent times, are not the first music siblings group to have collapsed through a fight.

Here are four musical siblings groups that went through painful splits.

  1. Jonas Brothers

The Jonas Brothers were an American rock and pop rock band, formed in 2005. They gained popularity from their appearances on the Disney Channel television network.

The group consisted of three brothers: Paul Kevin Jonas II, Joseph Adam Jonas, and Nicholas Jerry Jonas.

The Jonas Brothers in 2013 unexpectedly broke up just before the release of a new album and the start of a world tour.

Kevin Jonas made it known in an interview with HuffPost.

The 27-year-old musician further explained the breakup allowed him and his brothers to save their relationship.

Kevin claimed that the tension within their band was too much and they just really needed to break up and do their individual wish for a while.

  1. Oasis

Oasis were an English rock band formed in Manchester in 1991, developed from an earlier group, the Rain.

The band consisted of Liam Gallagher, Paul “Bonehead” Arthurs, Paul “Guigsy” McGuigan and Tony McCarroll.

They were later joined by Liam’s older brother Noel Gallagher as a fifth member, becoming the band’s settled line-up until April 1995.

The Gallagher brothers fought hard during Oasis’ early days, but by 2009, it seemed like they had settled into a profitable groove.

They released a new album every two or three years and played massive gigs across Europe to fans who were nostalgic for those magical days in 1995.

In August of 2009, the brothers got into some sort of physical altercation and called off the gig which led to the end of Oasis.

  1. The Everly Brothers

The Everly Brothers were an American country-influenced rock and roll duo, known for steel-string acoustic guitar playing and close harmony singing.

The group consists of Isaac Donald “Don” Everly and Phillip “Phil” Everly who were elected to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1986 and the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2001.

They managed to hold it together during their first 20 years, but things came to a head when Don showed up drunk to a show in Hollywood in 1973.

Don kept messing up the lyrics until Phil smashed a guitar over his head and stormed out.

The only time the brothers spoke during the next decade was at their father’s funeral.

The brothers, however, patched things up in 1983 enough to embark on a lucrative nostalgia tour, but tensions remained.

The duo have not performed together since a brief European tour in 2005.

  1. Bee Gees

The Bee Gees were a pop music group formed in 1958 which consisted of Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb who were brothers.

The trio were successful for most of their decades of recording music, but they had two distinct periods of exceptional success, as a popular music act in the late 1960s and early 1970s, and as prominent performers of the disco music era in the mid-to-late 1970s.

The Bee Gees wrote all of their own hits, as well as writing and producing several major hits for other artistes.

Long before Oasis had even plugged in a guitar, the world-famous Gibb brothers had won a reputation for terrible in-fighting which at one point caused the group to split.

Barry and Robin admitted that their feuding at times drove their helpless parents to despair.
