From as far back as 2013, P-Square has been on the verge of breakup with tension rising and ebbing – the only thing that has been holding them back is the fact that they are family.
Ironically, being family is also the reason why breakup has been imminent all this while within Square Records.
Two days ago, Peter, the clean shaven, dancing half of P-Square went on a Twitter rant alleging that his elder brother, Jude Okoye has been a thorn in the side of P-Square and that he (Peter) does not want Jude to be associated with P-Square anymore.
Inside sources close to the brothers have explained that of the two P-Square brothers, Peter is the outgoing, kinder one while Paul is the aloof, no-nonsense type. This is ironic because judging from their social media interaction, Peter seems to be the mean one and Paul the nice one.
Also, Jude and Paul are extremely close, so much that it seems Peter is always left out and ganged up upon by the other two. This much is evident in Peter’s marriage where Paul and Jude both opposed his choice of a wife.
As such, it was not surprising that after Peter’s Twitter rant where he said he wants Jude to stop managing P-Square. His desire is that P-Square should be just Peter and Paul but Paul has decided to side with Jude, instead; writing “if you don’t do family business, then who am I to you?”
Paul even went as far as cropping Peter out of a photo of he, Peter and Jude which sparked an outcry from Peter.
“And cutting me off from a picture and replacing me with a studio says it all my bro. All because you want to sound matured and letting the people insult and laugh at me. Peter Okoye the social media rant. I wish you will in all you do my bro”, he wrote.
Paul has made it clear that Jude is a part of the business and if Peter does not want that, P-Square should split. Peter who brought the whole issue to Twitter went back to lament once again on how he was being ganged on.
Paul did not bother to tend an apology or explanation but deleted the post where he cropped out Peter from the family photo.
Peter followed up with a public apology for his outburst. We wonder if another dispute will surface within a year like it always does or if this has been permanently resolved.
Either ways, P-Square remains together…for now.
I am not perfect i make mistakes, and it hurts people. But when I say sorry I mean it. I am so SORRY for my actions. I sincerely apologize
