Mr. P: P-Square will be back only if my brother respects my wife

Nigerian superstar Mr. P whom over the weekend performed at the United Sounds of Africa Concert at the Carnivore said he will never share a stage again with his twin brother not until he starts respecting his wife.

Mr. P (Peter Okoye) went through a bitter split with his twin brother Paul Okoye last year that saw the end of the famous duo group P-Square that conquered African music charts few years ago.

According to Mr. P, who has since gone solo, the split was caused by his twin brother with his continuous attitude of insulting his wife, something he said he couldn’t bare it anymore and would rather see P-Square dead for the sake of his marriage.

Peter rebranded to Mr. P after the break up.

“I don’t disrespect my brother’s wife neither his family but he does that to me all the time. He will insult me and my family in public, on Instagram, and the next minute he will wait for me back stage for us to perform together?” he wondered.


And despite fans pressurizing them to have P-Square back, Mr. P said he is not ready yet.

“I can’t do that. I pulled the plugs because I felt the disrespect coming from my family was getting too much. One thing is for sure I took a vow to protect my wife and kids that day I got married and I stick to that,” he said.

Mr P gave one condition that can bring back P-Square to life.

“P-Square can only come back if the respect that comes is 100 per cent. The fans want P-Square but how many times do you want P-Square to come back and break up. We ‘have broken up three times and the same issue is still there”

Mr. P was in the country on a tour to promote his mini video series ‘All Eyes on P’.

Since going solo Mr P has released a couple of solo projects ‘Look into my eyes’ and the latest single being ‘Cool it down’.
