Nigerian singer, Paul Okoye, popularly known as Rudeboy, has opened up on the cause of the rift between him and his brother, Paul aka Mr P, which led to the disbandment of their group, P-Square.

After almost five years of separation, the twin brothers reconciled in November 2021, to the surprise of their fans.

In an interview with media personality, Joey Akan, published on Tuesday, June 7, Rudeboy revealed that the split was caused by family issues and was not music-related.

Rudeboy stated that despite the anger from fans following the split, he kept mute and didn’t say anything because he knew that the issue was family related.

According to him, P-Square was “the sacrifice” that was paid for the family issue. In his words:

“I kept silent. I never said anything. I never said anything, because I knew what the problem was. It was a family issue, and it turned out that P-Square had to pay for it. P-Square was just the sacrifice.”

“It was a family issue, it had nothing to do with music. And because I respect family so much, I owe nobody any explanation.”

Paul ‘Rude Boy’ and Peter ‘Mr. P’ Okoye parted ways as PSquare over family discord that also involved their elder brother and former manager, Jude ‘Engees’ Okoye. The duo of Peter and Paul disbanded PSquare in 2016, supposedly over a disagreement about the role of their manager.
