Peter Okoye, a former member of the disbanded P-Square music group, claims that he is earning more money now than when he was with his twin brother.
During a recent interview with HipTV, Peter, who now goes by the stage name Mr. P, said this. He claims that he is no longer required to break his earnings three ways. He said that he now respects his rights. “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 legendary P-Square pair of Peter and Paul Okoye split up in 2016, reportedly over a dispute over the position of their manager, Jude Okoye, their elder brother. They were able to patch it together, even launching two new tracks together, but they split up the next year as the same problem arose again.
