Embattled Nigerian music star, Paul Okoye aka Rude Boy who is one of the defunct Psquare duo has opened up on how the music group paid the price for their family issues.
Paul Okoye became a trend a few days ago after his wife of many years, Anita Okoye filed for divorce, despite having three kids for him.
In a chat with On-Air Personality, Do2tun, Rude Boy disclosed that it’s unfortunate that their family problem led to the end of PSquare.
“…And like I always tell people, it is so unfortunate that family problem which I think is nobody’s business to know, but it’s so unfortunate that Psquare has to pay the price for it,” he said.
The ‘Emergency’ singer noted that he has promised not to talk about his family problems in the media and hates seeing their dirty linens in the media.
“One thing I promise myself not to do, let the Okoye family just have the peace that I think they are having now. I hate waking up anytime and just see people saying things you know, whatever that happened is just a thing of choice and one thing you need to do is to try and respect people that wake up one day and say they don’t want to do anymore, okay.”
Continuing, Rude Boy said he wished his twin brother could resist himself from divulging information on their family discord to the media and general public. “I am a family man and sometimes when I see issues and it goes to the media, I will be like I wish one person can just zip it. You know why? People will get tired but you see when you talk, you know. So, for me, it’s like I think we’ve rested for more and we are the highest, even ‘Boys II men no reach that level.”
On how having divided fans, he told Dotun, “Bro I always tell people ‘you see ehn’ I am doing this because I know the fans are divided but if you guys understand one thing if you guys can just concentrate on just enjoying music.”
Paul ‘Rude Boy’ and Peter ‘Mr. P’ Okoye parted ways as PSquare over family discord that also involved their elder brother and former manager, Jude ‘Engees’ Okoye. The duo of Peter and Paul disbanded PSquare in 2016, supposedly over a disagreement about the role of their manager.
