Since Jude Engees Okoye, the elder brother/manager of the twins (Peter and Paul Okoye) Nigerian pop superstars P-Square twitted a controversial statement on his twitter handle, rumour has been going round that the band is planning a break-up. Jude had twitted "After over 10yrs of hard work, it's over. Am done."
Speculations are rife that the twins now fight over everything including songs, videos and ideas. Report from the grapevine has it that the twins had a physical fight on Wednesday 16th April 2014 forcing their dancers to intervene and pull them apart. Other reports claim that Jude is tired of wadding in, settling the constants spats or even sometimes being a party in the vicious arguments; hence his tweet.
L-R Peter, Jude, Paul Okoye
The P-Square twins are an international sensation with a story that spans back more than 10 years. They have won countless local and international awards, and are music idols worshiped by millions of fans around the world.
Nevertheless, if the twins break-up today, they will neither be the first nor the last music superstar group and band to break up. Remember a popular saying "everything that has a beginning must have an end". If P-Square don't break up today, definitely they'll break up in the future!
Let's go down memory lane and see some of the superstar groups and bands that broke up: Jackson 5 (The Jacksons); ABBA; The Wailers; The Beatles; Kool & The Gang; The Commodores; New Edition; and in Nigeria: Jastix; Plantation Boyz etc.
We wish P-Square (Peter and Paul Okoye) happy more years together as a group, but if a break-up will end the incessant quarrels between them, especially now that they are married so be it.
