Nigerian Singers, Psquare Reportedly Involved In Cold War, Tearing Them Apart

Nigerian singer Peter and Paul Okoye, better known as Psquare, are reportedly involved in a cold war allegedly tearing them apart again.

Melody news reports that this comes barely two years after the duo settled their long-time beef and trilled music enthusiasts during their music tours to different countries.

In a post via Instagram on Saturday, Nigerian celebrity journalist, Stella Dimokokorkus, said the twin brothers are at war over joint funds being allegedly diverted by their brother cum music executive, Jude Okoye.

The source said a company had indicated an interest in acquiring the singers’ music catalogue comprising all of the Psquare works, but their conditions led to the unveiling of different secrets about their finances.

Stella further claimed that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, was involved in the issue, and Jude was detained in their custody before the intervention of the former President of the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF Amaju Pinnick.

She added that Paul was also an accomplice in the issue, stressing that he was allegedly sharing the royalties with Jude while excluding Peter.
