Peter Okoye of the Nigerian music duo, Psquare, has allegedly split from the group. The announcement of Peter’s new stage name, Mr P, on social media, had led to rumours that the brothers were not in good terms.
However, LIB confirmed this after obtaining an exclusive copy of the letter Peter sent to their lawyer – Festus Keyamo (SAN) on September 21, 2017, demanding out of the Psqaure contract.
In the letter that has since gone viral, Peter Okoye stated his reasons for terminating the agreement between Paul and older brother/ manager, Jude Okoye, adding that he had acted with caution because the safety of his family was his priority.
Mr P also stated that his decision was a painful one as he wished his brothers well in their future endeavours.
He said, “What I am about to do has been the most difficult decision to make, I have tried and exhausted all my options to make this work. However, it seems that Paul is not willing to cooperate.
“For example, he cancelled our US tour without discussing it with me, he cancelled each show we were booked for.
“He has also been accusing and threatening my wife and family of unimaginable lies via social media outlets. I and my wife have been getting different threatening messages…
“I cannot continue with Psquare in conditions like this that will jeopardize my well-being.
“We all have agreed that as long as PSquare is in existence, we can operate as individuals as long as it doesn’t tamper with the group songs.
“I wish Jude and Paul the best in their careers, I love them and their families but my family comes first.”
