Nigeria’s wave-making music duo, P-Square (Peter and Paul Okoye) have expressed shock over the rumours making the rounds that they killed their mother.
News Express reports that Mrs. Josephine Okoye, the number one fan of her superstar twins, died July 11 five hours after a heart surgery in an Indian hospital but, in a country where people prefer to believe that no death is “ordinary” and that virtually every achievement is as a result of a resort to rituals, many Nigerians are claiming that she was killed by the very children she adored.
Responding this morning in an interview they granted the Lagos-based Vanguard newspaper, Peter and Paul said: “It is too bad to hear that people are accusing us of being responsible for our mum’s death. We are not blaming anybody. People are free to say what they want to say. We begin to wonder whether there is anything that will ever make us to go for the life of our beloved mother.
“Her life cannot be quantified in terms of money or fame. So, our answer to this question is that we have no hand in our mum’s death. We only blame the death that snatched her away from us if not so, people won’t be pointing accusing fingers at us. She died after a brief illness.”
Asked how they feel about their mum’ s death, they said: “We feel so bad to know that our mum is no more. But who are we to question the Almighty God. Traditionally, we are supposed to bury her and not the other way round. It is just that it happened so soon. Indeed, her death was a big blow to us.”
The Okoye twins (showed in photo), who are internationally celebrated for their monster hits, also denied allegations that they belong to a secret cult called Illuminati. They said: “We are short of words. Why would anybody say such things about us? Well, the fact remains that we do not belong to any secret cult, whether Illuminati or anything you call it. We owe our achievements and everything that is happening to us to Almighty God.”
