Str8upbangin Presents #BringBackTheBand

The nineties recorded an unprecedented global explosion of boy band phenomenon. That memorable era enjoyed lush and robust music that had a rich blend of pop and R&B from such groups like Boys to Men, Jodeci, Shy, Silk, Musical Youths and a host of others in the international circuit. In Nigeria, The Plantashun Boiz, Remedies and Styl Plus held sway. By mid 2000 however, groups started to disintegrate or disappear totally giving way to a new hip-hop generation that favoured solo pursuits.

Today as the world welcomes new music from such phenomenal bands like Boys to Men and Jodeci in the international scene, Naija is not left out as some of our local boy bands have been making overtures at their diehard fans with new music. 
Even though the Plantashun Boiz’ re-union experiment turned awry a few years back, the fans have not given up hope and are still dying to hear new materials from the iconic trios of The Plantashun Boiz, Remedies and Styl Plus. It is against this background that Str8upbangin.com feels obligated to deploy its platform to organise an opinion poll to find out which band among the three most successful bands would be the most desired to make a come back in a poll dubbed #BringBackTheBand.

It is our intention at the end of the poll to present the people’s verdict to the group with the highest votes, hoping that the ‘’Voice of The Streets’’ will prevail and compel the group to hit the studio. You can log on to Str8upbangin.com for more details or you can also join the fun on Facebook, Twitter.
