Peter Okoye has finally come out to speak about the feud between himself and his brothers.
While granting an interview with Vibes Magazine, Peter gave an insight on the rift between him and his brother, confirming that they have been having issues for over four years.
He also said he has no problems with his brothers and their families and that he doesn’t know what the problem is. Peter says he has asked what exactly the problem is but no one is saying anything.
Last year, nobody knew what was happening. ‘When are you guys releasing a song?’ They did not know we were fighting but we’d still go on stage and perform. All I wanted was to keep the family together but what the fans wanted was to have Psquare. We gave you guys Psquare even though the family had been fighting for about four years-even as of last year that we claimed we were back.
“I cannot even face the shame of making the fans feel that we are okay. We are not okay. It’s not healthy. I don’t have any problem with their own family. The wives, everybody. I am cool with them. I don’t know what’s wrong. I don’t know why it looks as if the hatred is in my family. I’ve tried to ask them what the problem is but nobody is telling me anything,” he said.
When asked about the likelihood of a Psquare coming back together, Peter said
“Of course. When the respect is back. When you stay apart for a while, 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”. Don’t play with people’s minds. I don’t have any problem.
“All I said is that, have it at the back of your minds – P-Square is for the fans. Peter, Paul. Jude and family is family. People say why do I put my business on social media? If I say I am not dealing with this manager (Jude Okoye), it is for the public to know because it is the public that will still call and book a show with him.
“I give him my respect as an older brother. I don’t have a problem with that but when you disrespect me based on the job, then there’s a problem. One thing I will never do when I come back to this life again is mix family with business.”
He went further to added that “30 children cannot continue to play together for 30 years. Being apart is the best solution at the moment. It’s not pride. It’s not ego. It’s respect we’ve lost it.”
Peter Okoye was also asked if a singing duo to stay together until retirement, he was quick to dismiss it, claiming that it is not possible.
The Okoye brothers have been in the news lately for because of the split. The brothers have gone in with social media rants, shades to leaked viral videos of the brothers almost exchanging blows and insulting each other.
