Peter Okoye explained: “If we say what happened, people will take the story and start saying things that will take away all the positive things we said, so we won’t say what happened.”

The twin brothers insisted that their reunion was not a decision they made but something guided by a higher power.

They spoke of the individual endeavours they pursued during their time apart and acknowledged that this period of separation was necessary for their personal growth.

Peter shared that the time apart allowed him to be diligent and explore other ventures, while Paul Okoye expressed how their perspective had evolved.

“Now that we are back, we know where to put our money. Unlike before, it was just chains and watches,” said Paul.

Since their reunion, P-Square has embarked on a much-anticipated reunion tour, wowing audiences in various cities and countries.

The first leg of the tour ended with a remarkable show in London.

They hinted at the possibility of a new album entitled ‘Legendary’, but have yet to announce an official release date.

However, they assured their fans that they would deliver something special.

“We never disappoint when it comes to an album. P-Square never disappoint,” said Peter confidently.

The duo’s absence as a team for about five years had left a void in the music scene, considering their significant contributions to Afrobeats.

P-Square was among the pioneers who brought the genre to global recognition with chart-topping hits such as ‘No One Like You’ and ‘Ifunanya’.

With their reunion, the P-Square duo have reignited the excitement and anticipation of fans eagerly awaiting their return.

With an undeniable talent and an infectious energy, they are all set for a triumphant comeback, once again proving to the world why they are considered as legends in the Afrobeats genre.
