Popular singer, Paul Okoye who was one half of the P-Square Brothers, now known as Rudeboy, has revealed that he fell apart with his twin brother, Peter aka Mr P, due to the latter’s demands.
Recall that in 2017, PSquare fell apart after several years of dominating the Nigerian music industry.
Ever since their breakup, Lovers of the duo have been hoping and encouraging the Music icons to come back together as one, while they continue to make music for their fans.
Rudeboy said his relationship with Mr P went sour, adding that he produced a solo album in 2007 when he first planned to part ways with his twin brother.
He said, “I actually started my career as a solo artiste and I had recorded quite a number of songs.
My twin brother (Peter) also had a dance group which I was part of before, but left after some time. He (Peter) was brought in (to form P-Square) to create a unique group that would be different from other groups currently existing.
“I was singing while he would dance, and it was the idea of our elder brother, Jude. We only had a stage collaboration, not a music collaboration. What made P-Square was the division of labour we practised. I was in charge of singing, Peter handled the dancing aspect and stagecraft, while Jude was our manager and he directed our videos.
“However, it got to a point when one person started making demands to have some members of the team sacked.
Because we wanted peace to reign, we would let the affected employees go. That went on for some time but it got to a time that things could no longer continue that way.
“Our case is like that of a husband and wife whose marriage is not working but post lovely pictures on social media.
People who do not know the details, would see the rosy pictures and plead that the union remains, without knowing what happens in the background.
The best thing is actually for them to go their separate ways.
“A lot of people think that all these started recently, but it has been on for a long time.
I can confidently tell you that my first solo album was supposed to be ‘Game Over’ (released in 2007).
That title, ‘Game Over’, meant I was done with the group. I recorded the album as a solo artiste and sent it to some people but they were surprised that I was the only one on the album. People said different things and I later shelved my plan.”
