If you thought you had seen the end of the PSquare drama… think again.
Peter Okoye aka Mr P, one half of the PSquare duo has accused his twin Paul, elder brother Jude and a show promoter of deliberately misleading the public by using the PSquare stage name to draw crowd for an upcoming show.
In another social media rant, the Olympic ambassador alleged that the show promoters had been hyping a PSquare concert sponsored by Airtel, scheduled to hold in Congo July 8 & 9 without his approval.
According to him, he had been approached about the show but he didn’t agree to the terms and refused to partake in the show. However, their elder brother and former manager Jude, went ahead to book the show. Surprisingly, news being bandied about now was that could not attend the show due to an illness.
Debunking such rumors which he labeled a malicious representation, Peter issued a disclaimer on his Instagram page:
This goes out to all my Fans in Congo Specifically and the entire world in General.
My attention has been drawn to a much publicised show holding today 8th July, 2016(VIP SHOW) and tomorrow 9th July, 2016,(in Goma) and on the 17th of August in Kinshasa wherein the name Psquare was used maliciously and mischievously to garner patronage and huge fans attendance as against the stage name Rudeboy which is used when my Twin Brother, Paul, and Co-owner of the stage name Psquare performs alone.
I never endorsed the usage of my name as the contractual terms presented were not favourable to me, thus I am not part of the show booked by our former manager Jude and I wholeheartedly disassociate myself from the unauthorized use of my Co-owned stage name (Psquare) and images for promotional and economic reasons without my express written consent or permission.
Contrary to the wild allegations making the rounds that I could not attend the show because I am sick and missed my flight along with my crew members, I wish to counter same and state categorically, that I am 101% healthy.
I shall take appropriate legal actions in the nearest future against the promoters and the sponsors of these events @airtel_congob for character assassination and malicious misrepresentation.
MR.P (Peter of Psquare) Cc @airtel_kenya @airtelghana @airtelnigeria @airtel_tanzania @airtel_ga @airtel_ug”
Neither Paul nor Jude has responded to Peter’s accusations.
