Mr P fires salvo at his estranged brothers, says he’s making more money as a solo artiste


Peter Okoye now known as Mr P, one-half of the now defunct group P Square has taken a sly dig at his estranged brothers Paul Okoye aka Rude Boy (his twin brother) and his elder sibling Jude ‘Engees’ Okoye.

The energetic singer who was a guest during a recent interview with HipTV revealed in the course of a question and answer session that he makes more money now as a solo artist than before.

According to him, he no longer has to split his earnings three ways adding that 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.
