Tongues had started wagging some years ago when Peter began to make moves which indicated that he wanted to stand on his own. First, he got a solo brand ambassador deal with Olympic Milk. This was followed by his own reality show, ‘Glo Dance With Peter.’ However, the story didn’t start there. Insiders allege that Peter’s grouse stemmed from the fact that Jude insulted his wife, Lola Omotayo, and was against their marriage from the start.
While the wedding was going on, Peter was busy uploading pictures on social media. He had said at the time that his immediate family consisting of his wife and kids was more important to him than his siblings. He tweeted, ‘People talking s**t about blood” which blood is thicker than the 1 of my children? #mufus… #mufus talking about family! My number 1 family for now is the 1 I built. And nobody can change dat. #amout.’ This was months after the group was alleged to have broken up.
And as for the Cynthia Morgan part, who has been unwittingly dragged into the drama. Among his series of tweets during the week, Peter had alleged that Jude snatched Cynthia from his grasp before he could sign her to Square Records. Peter’s tweets read, ‘Was in the studio with @cynthiamorgan1 working with her and u told her to excuse us… You then said you heard I wanted to sign her. And then ask what will pple be looking at Jude as if I sign an artiste… 3day later @cynthiamorgan1 returned my contract and said jude said me trying to sign her on a different label is becoming a problem… But after 2 weeks she signed with Jude…. My brother think am…But let’s not go deep…. I still stand my ground. He is fired.’ In the heat of the recent fall-out among the brothers, there was a sneak of a rumour that Cynthia Morgan had got pregnant for Jude. It was indeed whispered that it was Jude’s getting the dancehall queen pregnant that got Peter incensed with anger, prompting him to want him out as their manager.
But Cynthia in a tweet hours ago has put paid to the rumour, stating that what has ever existed between her and Jude is purely professional.
Paul has also been making moves outside P-Square. He was recently unveiled as a brand ambassador for the Nigerian Urban Reproductive Health Initiative (NURHI) alongside Tiwa Savage, Mike Ezuruonye, among others. This is even as he has launched his own Rude Boy Records, and signed an artiste, Muno.
With the ongoing drama in the Okoye family, it is all too apparent that the story isn’t over yet. More credence has also been lent to the feelings in some quarters that the group may still ultimately break up. Even though Peter has apologized for his latest rant, it is believed that he only did it to calm frayed nerves, and not because he has really forgiven Jude.
