I Planned Leaving P-Square Since 2007 – Paul Okoye Makes New Revelations


Paul Okoye, the favored Nigerian singer who’s also called Rudeboy, has made some revelations about P-Square.

The singer and his twin brother, Peter, popularly often called Mr P, had been unarguably some of the common twins in Africa after they each belonged to the music group often called P-Square. However, for the reason that group broke up some years in the past, there have been many speculations and conjectures as to what might have gone unsuitable with them. Some had been additionally of the assumption that the break-up of the group was hasty and the brothers should have nonetheless stayed collectively.

However, in an unique interview with Saturday Beats, Rudeboy emphatically acknowledged that the problems that led to the break up of the group had been round for a very long time. He stated, “I really began my profession as a solo artiste and I had recorded fairly numerous songs. My twin brother (Peter) additionally had a dance group which I was a part of earlier than however left after a while. He (Peter) was introduced in (to kind P-Square) to create a singular group that will be totally different from different teams in existence. I was singing whereas he would dance, and it was the thought of our elder brother, Jude. We solely had a stage collaboration, not a music collaboration. What made P-Square was the division of labour we practised. I was answerable for singing, Peter dealt with the dancing facet and stagecraft, whereas Jude was our supervisor and he directed our movies. However, it acquired to some extent when one particular person began making calls for and known as for the sack of some members of the staff. Because we needed peace to reign, we’d let the affected staff go. That went on for a while however it acquired to a time that issues might not proceed that approach.

“Our case is like that of a husband and spouse whose marriage just isn’t working however put up pretty footage on social media. People who don’t know the small print would see the rosy footage and plead for the union to not break up. But, they don’t know what is going on behind closed doorways. The best factor is definitely for them to go their separate ways.

“Some people think that all these started recently but it has been going 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.”

On whether or not a collaboration was attainable between them even when they didn’t come again collectively as a gaggle, the ‘Woman’ singer stated, “The question is, does he see us together? It is not compulsory that everybody in a music group must sing. P-Square was never a group of two singers (rather, it was a group of one singer and one dancer). I honestly tried my best for the group to work. There are so many issues the public are unaware of that led us to this point. I choose not to say many things because I want to protect my family.”
