Untold Story and Dirty Details that May Bring P-Square to an End, As Okoye Brothers Ride on the Verge of Separation

What began like a strange rumour has since assumed a more realistic and dangerous dimension as Nigeria's number one music group, P-Square might be on the verge of a separation especially if comments from within the family and the recent string of incidents between the brothers (Paul Okoye and Peter Okoye) are taken into cognisance.

The drama has since assumed a very frightening turn for fans and friends of the group as Jude; the elder brother of the singing twins appears to have planted the seeds of fear and concern in the heart of millions of fans after he dropped a Tweet that summarised the level of disaffection within the Okoye family. "After 10 years of hard work, it's over. I'm done," Jude had said.

Given the source of this Tweet, it was clear that all was not well within the family.

Things went from bad to worse when a source close to the family disclosed that things have really gone from bad to worse within the family; to an extent that Peter Okoye has made it clear that he no longer wants to have anything to do with P-Square.

As if this isn't bad enough, the source also revealed that the brothers have gone as far as inviting a lawyer to divide the fortune they earned as P-Square.

We also gathered that Peter has moved out of P-Square's official residence, Squareville mansion situated in Omole where the brothers had lived together for years. Peter, we learnt, now resides at Lekki Phase 1 with his wife, Lola Omotayo and their children.

It was a flurry of revelations when the source shared some the dirty details and controversies within the Okoye family with Nigerian blogger, Linda Ikeji.

Excerpts

"Yes they fought this week. Peter even left a mark on Paul's left eye. But the fight wasn't during rehearsal, which rehearsal? Peter has refused to do anything P-Square for weeks now. Forget that he was at his brother's wedding, things are not good between them right now. They were even invited to perform at president Jonathan's wedding but they didn't go.

Peter wants out. He said Paul and Jude are sidelining him. That if they push out 200 songs, 199 would be songs Paul did. That people are now calling him a dancer in P-Square. Peter is really angry. He's even the cool and friendly one between the brothers but he is not himself right now. And then he accused his brother Jude of disrespecting his wife. Peter and Jude haven't spoken in weeks. Peter said Jude has been disrespecting Lola for years and he was done tolerating the BS. In fact Peter said that not only is Lola older than Jude, but that she's also pregnant and Jude was upsetting a pregnant woman. If you notice Jude didn't attend their wedding last year despite the fact that he was in Nigeria. Jude asked Peter why he didn't marry Lola when their mother was alive. Jude said it's his wife that is pushing him and they will need to pray for him. In fact nobody in the Okoye family likes Lola and they didn't support the marriage. The brothers are really angry at each other. The police is even involved. This week, either the commissioner of police or someone from his office visited their house.

The worst part is that they have invited lawyer to come and share property o. They want to share everything. The lawyer was at their house I think on Thursday. Peter said no more P-Square joint ventures. You know they own everything together, including a house in Omole, Parkview and Atlanta. Except something is done fast P-Square is about to be finished. But I know that people have been intervening and begging them to reconsider, that they are the biggest musical duo in Africa. Nobody will benefit if they split. The power to make money is in their togetherness.

It is Jude people are begging to keep the brothers together, but after what he tweeted yesterday, it may truly be over for P-Square. Jude has really tried for his brothers, for him to give up may mean it's over for them. He practically put his entire life on hold for his brothers. Even sold his first car to shoot their first video but all that is about go come to an end like he tweeted. The only thing that can save the situation is if by a miracle Jude and Lola settle their differences but I don't see that happening."

Dear readers, do you think this can really mark the end of the road for P-Square or is there still a way to salvage the situation?
