One-year on: P-Square rekindles romance with fans


Singers and twin brothers, Peter and Paul Okoye, who make up the group, P-Square, have had a chequered career. At a time they were unarguably one of the biggest music groups in Africa, but after rounds of in-fighting, the duo broke up on several occasions and went their separate ways as solo artistes.

Their latest break-up was in 2017, and they stayed about for about four years, going on to release solo songs and albums, before mending fences in Novermber 2022.

Barely a year after, the singers have continued to reconnect with their fans across the world.

On Sunday, November 20, 2022, the group performed at the Buckwyld ‘n’ Breathless ‘P-Square 4Eva’ concert on Victoria Island. The event seemingly reminded their fans of how much they had missed the duo. The brothers also didn’t disappoint as they constantly reached into their goodie bag of hit songs to thrill the crowd. Songs they performed at the show include ‘Collabo’, ‘Chop my Money’, ‘Do Me’, ‘E no Easy’, and ‘Beautiful Onyinye’, and they mesmerised the audience with their dance choreography. Another highlight of the show was when they brought other acts on stage. The stars that joined them were 2Baba, May D, Don Jazzy and J Martins.

Weeks before that, P-Square had excited fans during their performance at the Africa Movie Academy Award, which held on Sunday, October 30, 2022, in Lekki, Lagos.

On September 21, 2022, the duo had taken London, United Kingdom, by storm when they gave an energetic performance at their sold-out show in the city, as a part of their ‘world tour’.

Aside from going on tour, the duo has also released two songs this year, which enjoyed warm reception from their fans. This was even as Peter hinted recently that they would release an album in 2023. He had written on Twitter, “Legendary and iconic P-Ssquare are still selling out concerts around the globe with old hits. What then happens when they unleash the 2023 album? Wait for it.”

Away from music, the brothers have also been vocal about their support for Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, and the leader of the band of supporters called ‘Obi-dients’.
