Paul ‘Rudeboy’ Okoye, better known in the earlier days of his musical career as one-half of the defucnt music duo — P-Square — known for their jaw-dropping Pop bangers from 2000 to the early 2010’s before they finally brokeup in 2017 speak with Punch NG Saturday Beats, discussing what led to the messy situation between him and his twin-brother, Paul ‘Mr P’ Okoye.

In the interview, Paul Okoye spoke on the starting dynamic of the P-Square group, he said they (Peter and Paul Okoye) were in agreement with their senior brother and joint manager at the time, Jude ‘Engees’ Okoye, to form the group based on their respective talents — Singing (for Paul) and Dancing (for Peter). Paul Okoye goes on to reveal he even at a time was part of Peter’s dance group but eventually left after a while.

Paul commented on the roles he and his brother agreed to play as part of P-Square: “ My twin brother (Peter) also had a dance group which I was part of before but left after some time. He (Peter) was brought in (to form P-Square) to create a unique group that would be different from other groups in existence.” “ I was singing while he would dance, and it was the idea of our elder brother, Jude.” He added.

On what eventually led to the messy situation pre-breakup, Paul said: “it got to a point when one person started making demands and called for the sack of some members of the team”, Paul mentions, although not name dropping the “one”. He said they did let the request of that “one” to come into fruition for “peace to reign” but after concurrent demands from that “one”, they “could no longer continue that way.”

He further added they are many other things he could not reveal on the interview for the sake of his family’s security while likening P-Square’s almost over a decade stint together to a union between a married couple who post cute pictures together on the internet for likes and sweet comments from outsiders but in reality things were not really rosy between them.

Paul added he initially planned to go solo in 2007 with an album titled ‘Game Over’ but shelved his plans after a talk with his management and other concerned individuals.

“The question is, does he see us together? It is not compulsory that everybody in a music group must sing. P-Square was never a group of two singers (rather, it was a group of one singer and one dancer). I honestly tried my best for the group to work.” Paul ‘Rudeboy’ Okoye replies when asked if he and Peter ‘Mr P’ Okoye might want to collaborate on a song in the future.
