Since the announcement of the One Direction split hit the media a few hours ago, everyone’s been wondering why the successful boyband is chucking up the deuces.
One Direction which consists of Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson is reportedly splitting up for a while.
The boyband which saw Zayn Malik make an exit some months ago is splitting up allegedly because its members want to pursue individual careers.
Before now, speculations arose that Harry Styles who is arguably the most popular member of the band wanted to call it quits shortly after Zayn Malik left.
And recently, during a radio interview, Liam Payne hinted at an hiatus. He said:
You know, I think everyone needs a little bit of a break now, and a sit down and a stop, to kind of take in all the great things that have happened.
One Direction was formed in 2010 when X Factor judge Simon Cowell, together with Nicole Scherzinger put the boys together believing they would make it together as a band.
The band later went on to be one of the most successful boybands the world had seen in a long time.
Liam is reportedly looking into becoming a DJ and writing songs for other artistes and Harry Styles is rumored to be interested in pursuing an acting career in Hollywood.
This split is not exactly surprising, seeing as in the past the greatest bands have split up to pursue solo careers.
The Beatles, as successful and influential as they were split up at some point. And so did Destiny’s Child, Nsync and Spice Girls.
Hopefully these guys can make greater music as solo artistes as they go in different directions.
