”The Okoye family have been fighting for 4 years”- Peter Okoye Opens Up In Recent Interview

Popular Nigerian musician, Peter Okoye (Psquare), in a recent interview hints that Psquare might come back together but only if the “respect” that was initially in the team can be brought back.

While speaking in an exclusive chat with Vibe Magazine, Peter disclosed that there has been an ongoing family squabble between himself and his brothers, Paul and Jude for “four years” despite remaining united for the sake of their joint music business.

”30 children cannot continue to play together for 30 years. Being apart is the best solution at the moment,” Peter said.

Recall that the Nigerian music group, P-square, who dominated the Nigerian music scene for many years disbanded in September after Peter resolved to walk away.

The father of two later launched his solo career by signing a distribution deal with US record label Empire, and most recently, releasing a new single ‘Cool It Down’ which has been the most trending video on YouTube since its release a few days ago.

Speaking on fresh details on the P-square feud, Peter said;

”Last year, nobody knew what was happening. ‘When are you guys releasing a song?’ They did not know we were fighting but we’d still go on stage and perform. All I wanted was to keep the family together but what the fans wanted was to have Psquare.

We gave you guys Psquare even though the family had been fighting for about four years-even as of last year that we claimed we were back. I cannot even face the shame of making the fans feel that we are okay.

We are not okay. It’s not healthy. I don’t have any problem with their own family. The wives, everybody. I am cool with them. I don’t know what’s wrong.

I don’t know why it looks as if the hatred is on my family. I’ve tried to ask them what the problem is but nobody is telling me anything.”

While insisting that he’s after peace, Peter said he started speaking about the family feud on social media because he didn’t want people to get the wrong impression about him or his stand on the matter.

”The reason why I started responding to social media is because there was something that came out one time. I was advised “Peter do not say anything” but it’s affecting me today.

When my brother put out that he sings and writes all the songs. I never responded but right now, there are 50% of our fans and some groups that believe Peter doesn’t sing. All because I wanted peace. But now if you say anything about me, I will respond.

I don’t respond harshly if you’ve noticed. I’m not like last year. I decided to calm down because my family is more important here. I cannot trade my family. If you do not like it, don’t be my fan.”

Peter further said Psquare may one day reunite, but only if the lost respect is regained.

”Being apart is the best solution at the moment. It’s not pride. It’s not ego. It’s respect. We’ve lost it,” he added.

”When you stay apart for a while, the respect will come. People will never understand but we’ve lost that respect.

Like I said in the open letter, we will work in future but when we come back, it will be from respect. There was no respect that’s why there has been a back and forth. Aren’t you guys tired of it? If I tell you that P-Square is back now, people will say “You guys are tricking us”. Don’t play with people’s minds.

I don’t have any problem. All I said is that, have it at the back of your minds – P-Square is for the fans. Peter, Paul. Jude and family, is family.
People say why do I put my business on social media? If I say I am not dealing with this manager (Jude Okoye), it is for the public to know because it is the public that will still call and book a show with him.
I give him my respect as an older brother. I don’t have a problem with that but when you disrespect me based on the job, then there’s a problem. One thing I will never do when I come back to this life again is mix family with business.
The wives, everybody. I am cool with them. I don’t know what’s wrong. I don’t know why it looks as if the hatred is on my family. I’ve tried to ask them what the problem is but nobody is telling me anything.”
Peter’s gorgeous wife, Lola Omotayo made headlines a few days ago following the release of Cool It Down video after she asked what the vixen was doing on her bed.
Of course she was joking but I wondered, had she adjusted to her husband’s lifestyle as an entertainer whose constant contact with females was highly inevitable?
On how he has been managing the expectations of his female fans, Peter said;

”I knew Lola for nine to ten years before we got married so when we did our marriage; according to her, we just dey waste our time. We don marry since. Well on my Instagram I don’t behave as if I’m married.

It’s showbiz, you have to be happy and play along. It doesn’t mean cheating. Just be happy and know that you are an entertainer.”

Peter further explained how he tried his best possible to make sure he was always in his children, Cameron and Aliona‘s lives; no matter how much his job demanded from him.

”Thank God for phones,” he said. I video-call and talk to them all the time and one thing for sure is, out of sight is not out of mind.

I try my possible best to make sure that the little time I have I spend with them. I was on tour but I’m back for a week to head out on Thursday…Look at them here watching us because they feel you guys are taking their time because I’m supposed to be chilling with them.

I promised to take them to the park today but I told them we will go tomorrow; I don’t joke with my family. I can’t trade them for the fans… I’m sorry…”
