Peter Okoye has opened up about the real reasons PSquare broke up. According to him, everything boils down to respect. He also said he wasn’t going to abandon his family to favour his siblings days after he released his debut single .
Peter Okoye has revealed previously unknown facts about their breakup. Speaking in a recent interview, Peter detailed how lack of respect made him and his brother’s fall out and how he had to choose his family over his siblings.
Why i chose my family over my siblings. The reason why i started responding to social media is because there was something that came out one time. I was advised “Peter do not say anything” but it’s affecting me today. When my brother put out that he sings and writes all the songs. I never responded but right now, there are 50% of our fans and some groups that believe Peter doesn’t sing. All because I wanted peace.
I decided to calm down because my family is more important here. I cannot trade my family. If you do not like it, don’t be my fan. If you do not like the fact that I am standing for my family, then you should not be my fan and I am serious about it. My brother is my twin, fine, but you keep asking me blood is thicker than water. Obviously you think Paul is my blood and my family is the water?
The respect will come. We’ve lost it.People will never understand but we’ve lost that respect. Like I said in the open letter, we will work in future but when we come back, it will be from respect. There was no respect that’s why there has been a back and forth. Aren’t you guys tired of it? If I tell you that P-Square is back now, people will say “You guys are tricking us”.
To the fans, we’re sorry. You don’t want to see P-Square on stage when they just fought back stage; pleasing you guys when we are not happy. I’ve tried many times to make it work but it did not work… I just had to give up for the sake of the respect of our individual families.
