“I planned leaving P-Square since 2007” – Paul Okoye spills more details about breakup with Peter.
Nigerian singer, Paul Okoye alias Rudeboy, has given more details on why he breakup with his twin brother, Peter, now known as Mr. P.
The duo were unarguably one of the most popular twins in Africa when they both belonged to the music group known as P-Square.
However, since the group broke up some years ago, there have been speculations as to what could have gone wrong with the adorable twins.
Rudeboy in an exclusive interview with Saturday Beats emphatically stated that the issues that led to the split of the group had lingered for a long time.
“Our case is like that of a husband and wife whose marriage is not working but post lovely pictures on social media. People who don’t know the details would see the rosy pictures and plead for the union not to break up. But, they don’t know what is happening behind closed doors. The best thing is actually 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 a collaboration was possible between them even if they did not come back together as a group, the ‘Woman’ singer said, “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.”
