After weeks of online battles and social media drama, the multitalented and award-winning music duo P-Square have split up. In recent weeks, the duo has been throwing subtle jabs and shades at each other on their social media pages with one even pointed at Lola Omotayo, who is the wife of Peter Okoye.

The social media fiasco started when Peter Okoye referred to himself as Mr P in a social media post which we recall is the name he used to address himself when they last fought. He also opined in his posts that no one’s opinion should matter when it comes to your happiness.
Paul Okoye in his own post, said people were jealous of his twins and having sleepless nights as well as saying ”only a woman can come where there’s peace and destroy it,” which was believed to be a jab at Peter’s wife Lola Omotayo.
LIB confirmed that Peter Okoye has called it quits with his brothers by sending a termination letter to their lawyer, Festus Keyamo (SAN), wherein he demanded for a termination of the agreement between them on September 21, 2017.
In the letter, Mr Peter made some allegations against his brothers, Paul and Jude Okoye who is their manager. In his report, he mentioned that Paul is no longer willing to work with him, even going as far as cancelling their US tour without informing him. He also mentioned that Paul Okoye had slandered his wife and kids on social media and that they were now receiving threatening messages.
With regards to Jude their manager, he said that Jude had once threatened to kill him and shoot his wife Lola which was allegedly said in the presence of both Paul and the Mrs Imoke, the former first lady of Cross Rivers State. He also alleged that Jude claimed to bring him (Peter) a coffin if he ever comes near his house again.
Peter has decided that he has had enough of the drama and though he wishes his brothers and their families well as well as in their career, he cannot betray his wife and kids, as they are very important to him.
The story which was confirmed by LIB and reportedly spoke to Peter, reported that he said;
“Psquare is no more. I have nothing against my brothers. I saw Paul’s post on Instagram about blood being thicker than water.’
‘Who is water and who is blood,’ Peter asked, adding that his nuclear family (wife and kids) are very important to him and he has decided to move on with his personal brand – Mr P.
