Peter Okoye says ‘Paul Okoye insults my wife and kids, that’s why Psquare broke up’
Peter Okoye of the now defunct group, Psquare, has finally revealed the shocking reason that led to the end of the music group who topped charts across Africa and had a long lasting touch in so many parts of the world.
While the crisis that led to the end of the Psquare group was brewing, some sources claimed that the Okoye family disliked Lola Omotayo, Peter Okoye’s wife, while others alleged that Jude Okoye, the elder brother and then manager of the twins was responsible for the split.
However a year after the split with the twin brothers launching a solo career, Peter Okoye who turned up for an event in Kenya, disclosed that his twin Paul Okoye disrespects his wife. He added that he opted for the split, because he had to put his wife and children first because of the vow he made on his wedding day.
“In life what we call family value is important. “The fans want Psquare but how many times do you want Psquare to come back and break up.
“We’ve broken up three times and the same issue is still there. So if Psquare is going to come back we need to settle that issue. Psquare might come back, they might not come back.
“I pulled out the plug because I felt the disrespect coming from my family (was) getting too much,”
“There’s something we call marginalisation. Don’t ever be a slave because you want to be family.
“Psquare can only come back if the respect comes 100 percent.
“I don’t disrespect my brother’s wife neither, his family but he does that to me all the time. He’ll insult me and my family in public, on Instagram, and the next minute he’ll wait for me backstage for us to perform together.
“I can’t do that. One thing is for sure, I took a vow to protect my wife and kids the day I got married and I stick to that.”
