P-Square Twins Split?

Love Lost?: Paul, Anita, Peter and Lola

Love Lost?: Paul, Anita, Peter and Lola

It has come to our attention via several websites and blogs that the P-Square twins have finally decided to go separate ways, albeit acrimoniously. According to prominent Nigerian blogger Linda Ikeji, the two brothers have come to a point where they are engaging a lawyer to split their wealth. However, these rumours have been denied by the duo’s publicist Bayo Adetu who is reported to have said they were “baseless and untrue” and went on to rubbish media personalities. This rumours are said to have been fuelled by a tweet by the twins’ brother and manager Jude Okoye, which can be seen below;

Further to that, Linda Ikeji reported that the brothers have been fighting over everything, from songs to videos and as of 19 April 2014, they got seen fighting physically. Quoting her source, she presented the excerpt below;

“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 (sic! – was not) 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 a lawyer to come and share property. 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 news present a sad time for music and hopefully, the issues will be resolved and we will see P-Square shining again.
