Last night, Peter Okoye of P-Square took to his IG page to threaten to sue anyone who used his image in P-Square to book shows without his permission. He claimed he wasn’t aware of the show in Congo happening tonight and dissociated himself from the show.
Well, the video I received shows otherwise. Yesterday, I received an anonymous email from a staff at Airtel East Africa, who say not only was he aware of the show, he endorsed and promoted it…and they sent me exclusive video evidence. They claim he waited for them to start promoting the show before giving them outrageous conditions and then pulled out and went online to do a disclaimer.
Nigerian singing duo, P-square are at war again, ending the relative calm enjoyed in their camp since the much publicised beef in March this year.
One half of the duo, Peter Okoye now known as ‘Mr P’, has dissociated himself from a concert scheduled to hold in Congo with Psquare as headliners, stressing that he never endorsed the usage of his name as the contractual terms presented were not favourable to him. He threatened legal actions against his brothers, Paul and Jude. He also punctured the claim by his brothers, Paul and Jude that he was sick and couldn’t make the trip, saying that is 101% healthy.
‘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.
“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 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.
“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.
