According to the dad-of-two, their former manager gave Lola their CD and she fell in love with their songs. He also disclosed that Lola then ensured that they always performed at every function the agency she was working with organizes.
During the interview, the dad-of-two disclosed that their former manager at the time was the one who knew Lola and gave her a copy of the P-square CD. He said the disc eventually got stuck in Lola’s CD player and she had no choice but to listen to their songs anytime she was driving.
Eventually, the songs grew on her and that was how she became a staunch fan of Psquare. So much was her love for the music group that she started attending their concerts and recommending them for gigs.
Peter said they always made it a point to go and show their appreciation whenever she attends their shows. Unfortunately, the singer said they fell out with the manager who linked them up with Lola at the time and he refused to give them her contact.

Last year, the singer reiterated during a heart-to-heart conversation with his fans on Insta-live that he was a gold digger when he met his wife nineteen years ago.
The entertainer was dishing relationship advice to his fans when he shared about his own relationship and how much growth he and his wife have built together.
According to Peter, who directed his advice at men, in particular, he said men need to be smart and recognise when they have found a good woman. The singer shared that he was under no illusion that his wife was perfect but he worked with her to become the woman that is best suited for him.
He added that he was never really good-looking but that his wife worked with him to become a better version of himself and he shares that that is the secret of his looking younger than his years.
He said as at then;
‘‘I met my wife 18 years ago, I was a gold digger. When I met her, I f*cking had nothing. Men wise up, every woman is not a harlot or a slay mama, Pick one and make her look the way you want her to be.
My wife was never perfect, don’t get me wrong, what I did was make her look the way I want her to be and she made me look same way she wanted me to be.
Have you seen me before, I was ugly before. Look at me now, every day I’m looking younger.”
