He wrote on Facebook;

“Team P! What were they thinking? That I wasn’t going to survive alone? They just can’t stand the fact that I am richer now and doing well for myself. Pained! And this post is for them and them alone! Just watch them referring this post to my family as usual! Odes! Watch them start preaching!” he wrote.


“Like I said! Haters pls comment and identify yourself on this post and my management will separate you out from my true fans. The Blocking also includes the people that liked and support the comment!” he said.

He urged those who do not like him to unfollow him.

“You must not like my doings! So, Feel free to unfollow and unlike this my page! Or better still identify yourself so we can Block you! Have a very good morning!

I keep telling people. It’s not that men are scarce. They are not scarce. The type of men that some of us are looking for are scarce.

If I want to get married next week, I can. I want a man that I can look up to. Somebody that inspires me, somebody that will push me, motivate me; somebody who has had some success in his own career.

Peter Okoye Of P-Square Drops His Brother As Manager, Goes On A Solo Career (Photo)

P-square is undoubtedly one of the biggest African boy bands, but sadly, we may not be seeing the twin brothers on the same stage anymore.

This comes after Peter Okoye, the lead singer in the boy band, posted contacts of his new management on his Instagram page, and added the name Mr P on his bio section, which looks like he might be going on a solo career this time. This is what he captioned the studio pic;

Work Mood ?? Thanks for all the love, support and concern pls continue to remain blessed as always. For bookings and enquiries,

Peter released a single last week, titled ‘Look Into My Eyes’, his first solo project since forming P-square with his brother, Paul. He also performed alone in a recent event in Abuja, which sparked the break up rumors.

The group has been marred by break up rumors after Peter recently went on a twitter rant to push for their then manager and elder brother, Jude Okoye, to be fired as manager of P-square.

Paul, Jude and Peter Okoye

Jude has been managing P-Square for more than a decade, despite repeated calls for his resignation by Peter following a suspected family rift and allegations that he was not taking charge of the group.

Neither Jude nor twin brother, Paul has commented on the announcement made by Peter. Check out the photo on Peter’s social media, informing his fans that he has a new management and contact details.
