Paul Okoye of P-Square Reveals He Was Once an Electrician
Today, he comes across as clean, rich, suave, classy and sophisticated but clearly, Paul Okoye wasn’t always like this. At a point in his life, things got so tough; he had to work as an electrician to make ends meet.
In a revealing interview with Toolz on the Mid-day Show on the Beat 99.9, Paul Okoye, one half of the duo revealed that he used to hustle hard as an electrician.
“I used to fix fans, boilers and electrical things,” he said “but there was no AC that time so I can't fix that one,” he joked.
The duo, who were at the Beat FM to promote their album which drops on today, September 12, 2014, reminisced on the old times before they became the music brand that they currently have become today.
“Paul was an electrician. Me, I would climb the tree in our school to steal the mangoes and sell. I also used to gamble and the biggest gamble I took was saying we should move to Lagos,” Peter revealed.
Speaking on life as a married man, Paul admitted that he has become more responsible since getting married and this even affected him “artistically” as he can no longer be as free as he used to be.
“I can't take a picture without a shirt now. I'll use a tank top instead but that doesn't apply to Peter sha!”
When quizzed on their widely publicised quarrel and rumoured split earlier in the year, the brothers admitted that while they did indeed have a misunderstanding, it was not unlike the regular misunderstanding every sibling have. They however, reassured their fans that all has been resolved.
They also urged fans to expect to be wowed by their latest effort.
“We have a collabo with Don Jazzy titled ‘Collabo.’ He didn't produce it. He just sang on it and he killed it. We also featured Awilo and Jermaine Jackson on the album. Also, expect about 5 songs like Beautiful Onyinye on this album and a big concert next year,” they revealed.
