After weeks of bickering that would have torn apart one of Africa’s music powerhouses, P-Square – twin brothers, Peter and Paul Okoye, and their elder brother/manager, Jude ‘Engees’ Okoye – news coming from their homestead indicates that peace has returned to the once united family.
In a series of messages on social media by the award-winning musical duo today, they announced an end to the hostilities that hit the family for months which came to a head last week.
Tweeting early this morning (Friday) via their various twitter handles, Paul @rudeboypsquare said: “PSQUARE! Stronger than Ever!!!”. His twin brother, Peter followed suit with a short tweet @PeterPsquare: “FOREVER PSQUARE!” and Jude @judeengees sealed it with “Family is everything indeed. Long live PSQUARE!”.
Peace is coming on a day Jude, the elder brother, is marking his birthday as well as propose to his former beauty queen girlfriend, Ify Umeokeke, the MBGN Tourism 2012 winner.
Earlier reports had indicated that Peter had refused to be appeased despite interventions from close friends.
Peter reportedly gave condition for peace, saying his wife, Lola, must be accepted and respected by the family or risk total isolation from him.
One insider had said: “Peter is tired of the long years he has had to plead with his family to accept the woman he has decided to spend the rest of his life with.
“He wants Lola to be welcomed in the family just as Anita (Paul’s wife) has been accepted irrespective of her tribe or age. This is his condition.”
Although the twins had fought at their dance rehearsal earlier in the month, Vanguard learnt this was not what had ultimately prompted Peter to severe his relationship with P-Square.
The source said Peter “has taken their attitude towards Lola even more to heart than what role he plays in P-Square, be it singing or dancing.
“He can no longer endure the ill-affection concerning his wife.”
Sources further said that the crisis had escalated after it was learnt that Peter had allegedly bought a house for Lola in the United States of America, USA.
But all that is now over – to the relief of P-Square fans and other millions worried that the quarrel might destroy one of Africa’s biggest international musical brands.
