As the PSquare family mess drags on, Paul Okoye has lamented the absence of the calming influence of their late mother just as his brother Peter makes his first solo performance.
Josephine Okoye died in an Indian hospital on July 11, 2012, after an illness, and their father passed away in November 2014.
The once united family has been plagued by a bitter feud that has torn the brothers apart with one half of the P Square duo, Peter Okoye calling for the sack of their brother cum manager, Jude Okoye while the other half of duo, Paul maintaining a measured distance.
Paul lamented the absence of their mother in an emotional instagram post on today, Monday, March 14. The disturbing mood of his message was further stressed with the addition of a crying emoji. It was not yet Mrs Josephine Okoye’s fourth anniversary which is still over three months from now.
He wrote, “Now I understand what these life is without having a mother. You’ve played your part. Thank you very much, mum. Miss you.”
Incidentally, his thinly veiled outburst comes less than 48 hours after brother, Peter Okoye signaled what looks like the end of the group with his first solo performance at an Abuja gig, his first since the group hit the music scene some 10 years ago with the monster hit entitled Do Me featuring Waje.
In time past, the late Okoye matriarch has been described as the stabilizing factor that kept the group together while she was alive. But since her demise, things have never been the same for one of the most popular music artistes that Nigeria has exported to the world.
In a series of tweets, Peter Okoye vehemently declared the termination of the service of their elder brother, Jude Okoye giving his sack as the condition for the group to continue to exist as a music entity.
It appears that the last has not been heard, Swagg will keep you posted on new developments on the P Square family was.
