“Don’t ever be a slave because you want family” -Peter Okoye
Months after the split of popular music duo PSquare, Peter one half of the group explains reasons why he chose to exit the music group.
Peter Okoye also known as Mr P reveals that it was disrespect towards his family that pushed him to quit. He further added that his brother Paulb would insult his wife and kids and expect him to perform as a group (Psquare performances).
During an interview on Citizen TV in Kenya, Peter said:
“In life what we call family value is important,”
“The fans want Psquare but how many times do you want Psquare to come back and break up. “We’ve broken up three times and the same issue is still there. So if Psquare is going to come back we need to settle that issue. Psquare might come back, they might not come back.”
Peter said he must put his wife and children first because of the vow he made on his wedding day.
“I pulled out the plug because I felt the disrespect coming from my family (was) getting too much,” he said. “There’s something we call marginalisation. Don’t ever be a slave because you want to be family. “Psquare can only come back if the respect comes 100 percent. “I don’t disrespect my brother’s wife neither, his family but he does that to me all the time. He’ll insult me and my family in public, on Instagram, and the next minute he’ll wait for me backstage for us to perform together. “I can’t do that. One thing is for sure, I took a vow to protect my wife and kids the day I got married and I stick to that.”
However for the sake of the PSquare fans we hope to hear from other half, Paul Okoye soon and hopefully the respect demanded comes to 100% for good.
