There’s been rumour everywhere about Psquare and the supposed split between them. We tagged them rumours because somewhere in our church minds, we hoped it would be just rumours but all the stories might be true. When asked, P-Square’s publicist, Bayo Adetu, said the report is ‘baseless and untrue’. Unfortunately, it is not. Linda wrote that the twin brothers, Peter and Paul engaged in physical combat on Wednesday but none of the Okoye brothers have come out to say otherwise.
Apparently, things are worse than all we’ve been hearing. According to a source, Peter Okoye wants out of P-Square and they have even gone as far as inviting a lawyer to divide their fortune. This report is based on what’s been happening with the brothers up until right now. Am very sure I’m not the only one that hopes that this is all untrue and that it was just a minor quarrel that would be resolved very soon.
First, Peter Okoye has moved out of Squareville mansion in Omole where he lived with his brothers for years and now lives in Lekki Phase 1 with his wife Lola Omotayo and their children. An industry person Linda spoke with, who knows what’s been going on, said this;
“Yes they fought this week. Peter even left a mark on Paul’s left eye. But the fight wasn’t during rehearsal, which rehearsal? Peter has refused to do anything P-Square for weeks now. Forget that he was at his brother’s wedding, things are not good between them right now. Peter wants out. He said Paul and Jude are sidelining him. That if they push out 200 songs, 199 would be songs Paul did. That people are now calling him a dancer in P-Square. Peter is really angry. He’s even the cool and friendly one between the brothers but he is not himself right now. And then he accused his brother Jude of disrespecting his wife. Peter and Jude haven’t spoken in weeks. Peter said Jude has been disrespecting Lola for years and he was done tolerating the BS. In fact Peter said that not only is Lola older than Jude, but that she’s also pregnant and Jude was upsetting a pregnant woman. If you notice Jude didn’t attend their wedding last year despite the fact that he was in Nigeria. Jude asked Peter why he didn’t marry Lola when their mother was alive. Jude said it’s his wife that is pushing him and they will need to pray for him. In fact nobody in the Okoye family likes Lola and they didn’t support the marriage. The brothers are really angry at each other. The police is even involved. This week, either the commissioner of police or someone from his office visited their house.
The worst part is that they have invited lawyer to come and share property o. They want to share everything. The lawyer was at their house I think on Thursday. Peter said no more P-Square joint ventures. You know they own everything together, including a house in Omole, Parkview and Atlanta. Except something is done fast P-Square is about to be finished. But I know that people have been intervening and begging them to reconsider, that they are the biggest musical duo in Africa. Nobody will benefit if they split. The power to make money is in their togetherness.
It is Jude people are begging to keep the brothers together, but after what he tweeted yesterday, it may truly be over for P-Square. Jude has really tried for his brothers, for him to give up may mean it’s over for them.
He practically put his entire life on hold for his brothers. Even sold his first car to shoot their first video but all that is about to come to an end like he tweeted. The only thing that can save the situation is if by a miracle Jude and Lola settle their differences but I don’t see that happening”
This is extremely sad. I can’t imagine what it would be like without Psquare. I have listened and danced to their music for years but I can’t tell who’s Paul or Peter because I don’t care about that. I care about Psquare! Dear Psquare, please prove this industry person wrong. Long live Psquare!
