Peter Okoye, a former member of the defunct music group, P-Square, has said he makes more money as a solo artiste than when he was with his brother, Paul.
Okoye, who adopted Mr P as his stage name after P-Square ceased to be, made the statement after a fan called him out on social media.
The fan, identified as Chukwuagozigom Clement Nwachukwu, criticized him and his twin brother for going their separate ways in music.
“Mr p let us tell ourselves the truth….. That name p square is already made, anywhere you call the name, people respect the name so much because in that name we have a good singer and a good dancer at the same time but now, you people have divided to Rude Boy and Mr P.
“Let me tell you ome thing in terms of music, rude boy is better than you stop deceiving yourself. Ok……..you are now playing zoom………..cheeeeeeeeeeyi, before you’re busy signing endorsement with your brother…………..Go back to your brother because two head is better than one. Tell yourself the truth the time you people are together people respect you well more than now, every time you’re having big shows in America, Europe, Asia countries and so on. But now is Uganda, Tanzania and Anambra…… P square is better than Mr p and ride boy,” Nwachukwu said.
However, in a reaction to the post, Okoye referred to the fan as being “bitter”.
He revealed that he finished tour of 20 cities in the United States before the global COVID-19 outbreak.
Okoye also disclosed that he had just announced tour of seven cities in East Africa, and 15 city-tour in Europe.
According to him, he has deals as an ambassador with KIA Motors, Olympic, Tecno mobile, Adidas and Merrybet, while he only had one ambassadorial deal, when he was with his brother.
He stated that he is currently running his real estate business in Nigeria and the US, lottery & betting company, among other business ideas.
He wrote: “Bitter people everywhere!
