‘Yes, I’m greedy because I’m making more now than when I was with my brother’- Peter of P-Square fame



Singer and dancer Peter Okoye, formerly part of the defunct P-Square music group, says he is making more money than he did when he was with his twin brother.

Peter, who now bears the stage name Mr. P, said this during a recent interview with HipTV. According to him, he no longer has to split his earnings three ways. He said he enjoys his freedom now. “Hundred percent, I am. I don’t have to share three ways. Call it greed or selfishness. It’s your own cup of tea. I share with nobody. Yes, my management and my team. Fine.

But I’m doing my own thing. I’m freer. I’m making more money. Freedom is key. I can get a call that there’s a show next week and it’s my daughter’s birthday. I can say, ‘cancel it’. As a group, I couldn’t do that.

Moneywise, if I used to share three ways, I share alone. What am I doing music for? It’s about doing it how I feel it. It’s not even about the money. But when it comes to that, I make more than I was while in the group,” he said.The formidable P-Square duo made up of Peter and Paul Okoye, broke up in 2016, supposedly over a disagreement about the role of their manager—their elder brother, Jude. They were able to patch things up, however, even releasing two new songs together but went their separate ways that same year after the same issue cropped up again.
