BN Bytes: P-Square’s French Invasion | Watch P-Square & Matt Houston – E No Easy Remix (French Version) | Watch Trace Urban’s Exclusive Interview With P-Sqaure



The most successful duo out of Africa, P-Square shut it down at their sold-out concert in France last week; their first concert in France.

So, the crew at Trace Urban caught up with Peter and Paul Okoye to get the juicy scoop on their success, their affiliation with Akon as well as their fifth album effort, “The Invasion”.

Also, here’s a spanking new video for their single “Positif” (“E No Easy Remix” – French Version) with French R&B sensation, Matt Houston.

Check on it.

    I’m really proud of them but they should have been the NIGERIAN BORN stars as they were lauded to be in the interview clip…the accent was nearly unbearable to listen to!

    I heard this song in a Cab on my way from St Tropez to Monaco and I could have sworn it was a French remix to our original Nigerian E No Easy PSquare version but my friend disputed it. I was right after all Yippie!!! go Psquare, Way to go!!!,

    The funny thing about this accent forming is that, you start speaking/forming it, mumble along the way and end up speaking with your own accent which makes it so horrible….They never start and finish with the same flow…..My friend came back from JAPAN after 6 months and started speaking with Fake Ameri-britico accent that ends his sentences with a thick igbo accent…God have mercy!!!And he actually thinks that he is so cool…..Do Nigerians really have to do this to be accepted.This accent forming is so horrible..It’s like a Chinese man trying to sound American!

    @Blackknight: go and die! I detest jealous ppl like you. P-SQUARE- keep it up; you are indeed Naija’s numero uno!

    I love you guys- P2. Keep doin’ us proud…tnx.

    @naija4life, lol – Am not jealous.I love P-Square and their music.Trust me, I admire and respect them for what they have achieved.I wasn’t talking abt them per se, although ,using them as a ref point , I wonder why naija boys and girls like to change their accents – Guy speaks naturally with his friends…the moment he sees a girl or camera, he switches to accent forming mode…..Girl meets boy, same happens.My point is, why put too much pressure on ourselves trying to be what we are not.Chinese man, wouldn’t do that, same with Indian,French etc….Why do we have to form accent to look relevant?It’s rubbish because no matter how much you try, you turn out so ridiculous….just like P Square and YOU, the Naija 4 life.

    Seriously, na una dey confuse p square, if dem speak lyk naija una go dey yap dem say,dem get igbo accent…so they hv no choice dan 2 fake it so dt they won’t sound so igbotic

    @chacha: they r proud of thr igbo accent cos they r igbos. It reflects in thhr music.. They also make d best music n music videos in africa. They cant b confused either cos they r made. I hope this suffices. Up p square! Up naija music.

    i loved the video, buh i support the previous comments about the formed accent. I think dey are doing good taking naija music round the world, buh dey should be proud of their normal accents. Its even fits dem better than dis forced one. Of cos they shud also promote naija lifestyle as much as our song and dat definitely includes our accent. Be it igbotic, calabarish, or ijebuish!

    @ Blackknight, you are so right and you didnt have to defend yourself when what you said is the truth just like so many others pointed out here as well. P-square, you guys are already blessed so no need to put on the try-hard accent anymore.

    Oh Lawd, I kept gritting my teeth all through, that accent na wa o! Please guys, take a page from Tuface’s book. Your originality is way hotter and sets you apart like you should be. Drop the badly faked accent. Elocution classes are a much better option.

  32. austin

    May 9, 2012 at 1:47 pm

    @Tiki: make we hear ur own accent naa…and know if u need elocution classes as well (just dat u no get any platform sef)..English Teacher! Love u P-Square; keep doin’ us proud.

    I don’t know…maybe, its just me..But I love these guys to bits. I just love them. there is this confidence and “sexiness” about them dat I so admire. they really are Nigeria’s great music ambassadors..much more than any other, in my opinion. Pls u keep doin us proud the world over. We appreciate dat…Alisha, NYC, USA.
