P-Square reunites, put family first
After weeks of drama which kept the social media abuzz with ranting tweet and comments, the Nigerian R&B acts, Peter and Paul Okoye of PSquare fame, are back together as a group.
Although, this is not the first time a disagreement between the musical twins would come to public notice, it was the first time any of the brothers would release solo singles. They had at the beginning of their separation five weeks ago took to their different Instagram pages, breathing heavily on each other’s neck.
Weekend Beat gathered that two female fans of the pop singers had cried profusely and posted a video on Youtube, begging the twins to come back as brothers and as a group to do what they know best, which gives a lot of people joy.
The Okoye brothers, perhaps, touched by the cry decided to heed to pleas of the fans and came back as a group. They took to their respective Instagram pages to inform the world that they are now back as a group. Their elder brother cum manager, Jude Engees Okoye, who, all through the drama was quiet, broke his silence by posting the same message on his own page.
“That it took our stupidity to realize that family comes first; we are very sorry,” the twins posted on their different pages @PeterPSquare @rudeboysquare @judeengees #dembeonenobetwo #PSqaureForever.
Before the reunion, Paul in a tweet, stated: “All you all want is P-square, all I want is family, love and care! Social media is the new root of all evil! There’s family before P-square and there will always be family after P-square. Jude was only a scape goat and a victim…the person who has been keeping us together for all these years.
“Dear brother I’m begging you, even if you don’t want Jude anymore and you don’t want P-square, you are forever going to be my brother, but I wish the three of us could still do these together, because it’s a thing of joy. People love us so much not only because of our good music, but seeing brothers doing it together and keeping it, setting a good example to other families and to our kids.
“Please swallow your pride, forgive and forget, we can still turn these things around. If I have said anything or done anything that hurts you, I’m very sorry, and to all our true fans please pray for us. God bless you all.”
Then Peter wrote: “I am not flawless, I commit errors and it harms individuals. In any case, when I say sorry I would not joke about this. I am so sorry for my activities. I genuinely apologise.”
The news of their separation had hit many like a hard stone, leaving their fans to take sides and pledged their support for one half of the twins. While some prayed for their quick reunion, others really do not care about the split.
Peter and Paul cut their teeth as singers and dancers in their school music and drama club at St. Murumba Secondary School in Jos, Plateau State before forming a group known as the Smooth Criminals in 1997.
When the group got disbanded, the twins, who were already household names in Jtown, founded their own group. At different times, they named the group Double P and Da Pees before finally settling for PSquare.
They were initially managed by Bayo Odusanmi, popularly known as Howie T, a seasoned music promoter cum entertainment entrepreneur. The duo won the Benson and Hedges Grab Da Mic talent hunt in 2001 and earned a well-deserved sponsorship.
