They say that lightning never strikes the same place twice, but the opposite seems to be true for some Nigerian celebrity siblings who have managed to create a name for themselves in their various fields of work.
What is even more amazing is how some of these popular siblings continue to excel in the same careers without any form of rivalry.
Although the same cannot be said for the likes of Peter and Paul of the defunct Psquare, most of these celebrity blood relatives continue to serve major sibling goals.
Here are 12 pairs - or sometimes trios - of famous brothers and sisters:
1. Dakore and Timi Egbuson
Although Dakore Egbuson first hit the limelight in the movie industry, she no doubt did a great job putting her younger brother, Timini, on.
From the MTV series, Shuga, to web series, Single Girl In Transit, Timini has done pretty well for himself in Nollywood.
2. DJ Cuppy, Temi and Tolani
The billionaire sisters, Florence, Temi and Tolani, are no doubt some of the most loved famous siblings in Nigeria.
While DJ Cuppy is the most popular, her fashionista sister and actress, Temi has created a name for herself and the same goes for Tolani whose music is gaining her love and attention from fans.
