Nigerian Hip-hop twins, Peter and Paul Okoye of the popular stage name, Psquare, that dominated the Nigerian music industry for many years, have finally split up.
Peter posted a Snapchat video that went viral on Monday, revealing that he is in Philadelphia on his own for a solo show without his twin brother, Paul.
“My name is Mr P,” Peter said “As from today, guess what? It’s show time, I’m about to go on stage.” This post came days after his brother, Paul wrote on instagram saying; “Only a woman can come where there’s peace and destroy it”.
According to reports, a letter was sent to their lawyer Festus Keyamo (SAN) by Peter, who demanded for a termination of the agreement as a group.
A copy of a letter revealed that Peter based his decision on some serious allegations against his twin Paul and Jude their older brother and manager.
He accused Paul of no longer willing to co-operate with him, and even gone as far as cancelling their scheduled music tour to the United States.
He added that Paul was also slandering his wife and children with lies on social media, and alleged that his family was being threatened with threat messages.
Peter further accused his older brother, Jude, of once threatening to kill him and shoot his wife Lola.
He stressed that he was tired of the “drama” and all he wanted was opting out of the Psquare group and contract.
The Okoye brothers have been engulfed in war of words on the social media in recent times, and this development has confirmed rumours that there have been strains in their relationship.
Consequently, Psquare had a heated fight in their lawyer’s office following the ongoing disagreement and split of the group.
The fight, which was recorded in a video currently trending on the internet showed Paul and Peter Okoye with their elder brother and manager, Jude Okoye in the lawyer’s office.
Jude, whose wife gave birth to a baby girl Monday, was seen threatening to beat up Peter who was behind the camera while Paul was heard telling Peter, “shame on you.”
Hours after the video began to trend online, Paul took to his twitter handle @rudeboypsquare to respond; “Wow!!!! And he finally released the all mighty video lol.”
