Nigerian singer Paul Okoye aka Rude Boy, facing divorce from his wife has revealed how the defunct PSquare music group paid the price for their family issues.
Okoye became a trend a few days ago after his wife, Anita Okoye filed for divorce. The duo is blessed with three kids.
Okoye in a recent chat with On-Air Personality, Do2tun, disclosed that it’s unfortunate that their family problem led to the end of PSquare.
He said, “Like I always tell people, it is so unfortunate that family problem which I think is nobody’s business to know, but it’s so unfortunate that Psquare has to pay the price for it.”
The singer noted that he has promised not to talk about his family problems in the media and hates seeing their dirty linens in the media.
“One thing I promise myself not to do, let the Okoye family just have the peace that I think they are having now. I hate waking up anytime and just see people saying things you know, whatever that happened is just a thing of choice and one thing you need to do is to try and respect people that wake up one day and say they don’t want to do anymore, okay,” he added.
Rude Boy added that he wished his twin brother could resist himself from divulging information on their family discord to the media and general public.
“I am a family man and sometimes when I see issues and it goes to the media, I will be like I wish one person can just zip it. Do you know why? People will get tired but you see when you talk, you know. So, for me, it’s like I think we’ve rested for more and we are the highest, even ‘Boys II men no reach that level,” he asserted.
Reacting to having divided fans, Okoye said, “Bro I always tell people ‘you see ehn’ I am doing this because I know the fans are divided but if you guys understand one thing if you guys can just concentrate on just enjoying music.”
PSquare music group parted ways in 2016 over family discord that also involved their elder brother and former manager, Jude ‘Engees’ Okoye.
It is believed that the duo ended the music group over a disagreement about the role of their manager.
