Following the on-going feud and video that surfaced online of the Okoye brothers nearly coming to blows in their lawyer’s office, Festus Keyamo who represents P-Square has released an official statement.

In his statement released via his Facebook page, he reveals that the video circulating online had been recorded in May 2016. He goes further to say that their wives have kept a respectable and dignified distance from the ongoing drama and in fact have never intervened.

He concludes by saying what is going at the moment is the usual sibling rivalry which happens in every family, and they are working on resolving the issue and settling their differences.

      No amount of SAN lettering will explain away twins threatening to kill each other. Not done in my family.

    What is usual about making home-video of i and my siblings quarrelling, for public consumption? This fight has advanced beyond usual abeg. Whatever it is, we are tired of it.

    Okay but next time don’t allow such recordings unless it’s your organization doing it with the consent of all parties for conflict resolution purposes. It’s unprofessional.

      It’s obvious that Peter recorded the video without their knowledgeand sent to Linda Ikeji. Watch the video, obviously recorded from Peter’s shirt pocket.

    Rubbish statement. Very meaningless. If nobody is responsible, Is it Trump that is responsible?
    How did Keyamo become a SAN? Charge and bail lawyer.. Political SAN.

      Ahn ahn, what was he supposed to say? Should he come and give you a blow by blow of his meetings with his clients which is strictly confidential? He just told you its an old video, the issues are being resolved, no one is in danger,their wives are not involved, stop the speculation, give them space. What else do you want to hear? Na wa

      Seeing how old the video is definitely puts Lola’s husband in bad light. After all this time and two hit singles, you are still holding on to the video. He filmed them talking as if he didn’t say anything himself. Innocentia. That means he can hold grudges oh. As for Lola, you’re not the only wife. How come your name always comes up? You cannot be on your house minding your business and people will be calling you. There is more to it.

      Mrs Chidukane. thank you so much. Peter and Lola are the innocent ones.. how are Ppl so sure? All we have heard is their own side.
      Peter keeps publicising the whole thing, releasing old videos etc

      Pls… When parents say don’t marry this person, it may be because God is using them to prevent a big calamity in their children’s life.

      For all thePpl screaming that this is because Lola is Yoruba…. It’s most likely a lie.
      I guess the disapproval from their mom was more about how much older and more worldly Lola was compared to Peter…. She also has a non-savoury past. Most mothers want a well brought up decent girl for their son….regardless of tribe.. Psquare mother was no different.

      Peter Pls calm down. concentrate on your brand and stop causing the whole world to hate your brothers.. they’re more mature and better behaved in keeping silent about this whole matter.

      And for Ppl talking bs about Jude. Jude is the 1st son of the family. That means a Whole lot in Igbo land. He deserves some respect from his brothers.

      I pray they sort out their issues and peace reigns in the family.

    And let me also add: Lola may have helped psquare with publicity whle they were struggling to be made, but Jude was there for them from the Beginning.
    It’s no secret that Jude sold his car to finance the group. Psquare is a family business whether we like it or not.

    Peter and Paul are better together. Don’t let the devil steal your source of income. Jude is ingenious with the camera and music videos.

    As a huge fan of yours, I’m begging you all to sort out your differences.

    by the time debit alerts overtake credit alerts on your accounts, una go realise.

      Point of Correction: Lola NEVER helped
      P-SQUARE in ANY way. Please, get that correct.
      Besides that, your other remarks resonate!!
      Well said.

    Lola, I specially send love to you … the hateful comments I’ve read about you in the last 24hours are enough to plunge a sound mind into depression but I trust God is your pillar of strength … if this is the only loving comment you read, please do well to savour every word of it
    – you are a good wife
    – you are a spectacular mom
    – you are hardworking (I remember your days in econet, my uncle told me about you)
    – you married well, yes you married well! You found a good man with potential, some say he is deficient of ‘pedigree’ and ‘class’ but you didn’t care you were prepared to pull him up and trust me you are doing a very good job at it
    – from my observation, people are upset peter always puts you and the kids first … in my opinion, that is the finest manifestation of love from a husband
    – most of the people talking trash about you (especially the ones doing it in a sleek way) can’t touch the high ground you walk on even if they jumped on a trampoline

      Our people say there is no smoke without fire so leave matter. I was like you, always defending her and all but recently, I’ve just been thinking. Things are not always what they seem. You really can’t vouch for anyone. Also,is a husband not supposed to put his family first? Does he deserve an award or what for that?

    • ***

      September 27, 2017 at 8:47 am

      Is he supposed to get an award for putting family first? No … it is definitely commendable and worth emulating and stating … lola and peter have to make their bond even tighter, people castigate her for no obvious reason … how is she a bad person? Lola that was intrigued by the psquare phenomenon (adorable identical twins with tremendous talent) is who possibly wants to tear them apart?! You obviously don’t know lola … she always rooted for psquare, she believed in them and she loved them (probably still does) lola is not only very beautiful, she is intelligent, she loves peter like an angel and puts her foot down, so somebody has probably always been intimidated by her qualities … what did she do wrong? You think lola doesn’t know psquare will always be bigger than mr.p or rudeboy?

      My take here for Lola.
      1. Encourage your husband to forgive- Releasing an old fight video by your husband is deplorable. This recounts of unforgiveness and selfishness from your household. Don’t let people deceive you by saying you dont control Peter blablabla…. Babe we control our husband’s emotion hands down! We push and pull them. We the women are the ones who point out inequalities , cheating friends,family and associates. My sister please work on this. Him doing these makes you a collaborator period….so work on it. It has nothing to do with its because “i am a yoruba” HELL NO! You can imagine that your husband have created so much suspicion among family members. We love the fact that Peter loves you which is his duty and i know you can influence him positively.
      2.Discourage victim mentality from him…

      3. Ify has to also work on Jude if she can. Peoples remark on him not admirable. Jude should be more mature and a peace ambassador than take sides.
      4.No one is talking about Anita cos she seems quietly busy with her house hold.

      @…….They all love their wives dont they?

      @Mrs Chidukane — “Also,is a husband not supposed to put his family first? Does he deserve an award or what for that?” Yes, He deserves an award for putting his family first. Doing what you are supposed to do diligently deserves an award, think about it. However, I will like to know what you think should be awarded?

      I don’t have Lola’s patience and strength. How much can a woman take insults from fucking stupid judgemental strangers for more than ten years as if they all live in the same household and know everything. Lola I salute your strength. Very intelligent smart lady who could have done better and married way down.

    Peter should be ashamed of himself!
    When did loving your wife and siblings become mutually exclusive?
    Suppose your siblings said awful things about your wife and nuclear family, do the world need to know that?
    If my husband ever said a hurtful thing about my parents and siblings, do I have to tell them?
    For what? So they will hate each other and I will be caught in between?
    What is the motive of releasing this video now?
    To gain sympathy, play the victim and sell out tickets? To the detriment of your extended family?
    Why this feud at this time when your brothers are busy with new babies?
    BTW, if you become very, very rich, where is the money going to? Isn’t it okoye family’s name?
    What is the competition about?

    If you want to be on your own, that’s okay but don’t break boundaries and relationships while doing that!
    Here you are on a music tour, singing PSQUARE songs, making money and at the same time painting your brothers black!
    Your video only showed Paul screaming but showed nothing about you. Are you saying you did nothing?

    My dear Mr. P, go ahead and make your money but stop painting your brothers black just to be on top. God hates ugly.

    And all you Okoye brothets, just remember, your children are watching you!
    All those insinuating that their wives are responsible for this should stop it! Nothing my husband tells me will ever draw me away from my family!
    Okoye men need to grow up! !

    Bella Naija. You swallowed my comment abi?

    I just want to correct a notion. Cos I’ve seen Igbo people being bashed left, right and centre on this blog for perceived tribalism towards Lola.

    I can bet the Okoye family animosity is not due to her tribe but due to the fact that Lola is:
    1. at least 5 years older than Peter. that makes her more mature
    2. She’s more worldly and more exposed
    3. She had an unsavoury past… I know people change but no mother wants a rumored ex-runs girl in her family esp a mother who’s a pastor

    trust me with these points above, no mother from any tribe will jump up and down happily to welcome such. We’re in Africa, that’s just the bitter truth.

    Even in civilised Britain…. Look at how Brits are against Prince Harry and Meghan Markle because she’s older, divorced and probably black.

    also for those of you screaming about Lola’s class and pedigree. We Igbos don’t care about that in a wife (Igbo women don’t carry their father’s wealth into their husband’s house, they create wealth with their husbands). What Igbos look out for is decency and character. A woman who had to wait for donkey years and give birth to 2 children before the man married her is not classy in our opinion.

    I’m happy Lola and Peter are making their marriage work despite all the negativity.

    Peter should just stop dragging his brothers through mud.

    Bella naija…. it seems you’re protecting Lola and Peter, I dare you post this comment. You’ve allowed all sorts of things to be posted against the other party. Don’t lose your credibility by being biased.

      ‘Rumoured ex-runs girl with an unsavoury past’ is this a new twist? Lol does peter have a savoury past? Any elegant lady that stands tall, successful and wears a straightforward countenance in nigeria is always regarded as a runs girl …lol do your research, lola started sitting at the adult table of her hustle way before psquare wrote their first hit … she may have dated multiple times but sure doesn’t equate to prostitution … do you understand what prostitution is? Lol … you said something about decency and character, because she had to marry years after she had kids and how igbo people have better standards and how a ‘woman doesn’t carry her father’s wealth to her husband’s house’
      I hope your igbo moral court holds sandra okagbue, iheoma nnadi, genevieve nnaji etc to this standard … the truth is lola is an exquisite lady; her poise, demeanour, education, etiquette and grace cannot possibly be unnoticed … she was (still is) deeply in love and children came along, it happens … at least she married her baby daddy … pre-marital pregnancy doesn’t prove bad behaviour … so lola is the only ‘guilty’ person in this mess? Na wa

    @hmmmm I dont think Peter recorded that video using a camera from his shirt pocket as you inferred because, at the time he stood to challenge Jude, the video was still recording and we could see his back view from a distance. someone else must have been recording the video from that distance.

    Mrs Chidukane, i have never called anyone out since i have been commenting here(which is once in a blue moon) but i call you out madam, you know what your true intentions are, stop with the subtle aspersions you are casting all over the posts and just say you don’t like Lola. You it was that wrote on a post that you advised all your igbo young ladies never to marry a Yoruba. I remember vividly cos i was shocked as i used to consider you one of the liberal minded ones here.You and i know nothing about this family save what we have read and deduced which might not be true. i met these guys several years ago before they both got married. After two hours, my colleague pointed out something he noticed which has now come full circle. They all should work on their tempers and leave poor wives out of these nonsense that has been brewing for long.

      Spot on! I think it’s easier to demonise the non-Igbo wife than face the fact that their problems go way beyond whether or not someone is older or was allegedly a ‘runs girl’. It’s obviously about someone feeling a sense of entitlement.

      Aso, there is the possibility that Jude and Lola may have history together? It is really hard to accept that his morbid hatred towards her is only because of her tribe, age or past.

      Hian,my older sister is married to a man from ondo state. I don’t know what you’re talking about. Get your facts right please. I am far from being a tribalist. I will however defend my tribe from slander and misrepresentation. Anita is from rivers state. She is not igbo. Its not a Yoruba thing please I have nothing against Yoruba people. My husband’s brother cannot threaten to shoot me if I’m in my house, minding my business. Its just logic. You don’t have to over think it.

      September 27, 2017 at 2:45 pm

      Mrs Chidukane, Biko leave these people jare.

      I totally get the point you’re trying to make.
      I too have siblings and male cousins who married girls from other tribes and even non-Nigerians and there is no issue. People should stop making this all about tribe. There may have been something about Lola that made the mother kick against the union and made the brothers turn against Peter.

      the video is very one sided. Peter is the only one ranting, we have hardly heard the other two’s side.

      Ppl saying Jude is manipulating Paul… so Lola cannot manipulate her own husband???. My wife can turn my neck any way she pleases. Women are powerful. Lola may not be doing this from a bad place, she may be fighting for her husband’s rights.

      this doesn’t mean Lola is a bad person. We all know Peter is not a saint either and he has his own past. But Africa is a misogynist society. And whether we like to admit it or not, most people will frown on a union where the woman is way older than the man.

      as I said earlier, I’m glad Peter and Lola are making their marriage work. I’m just preaching for peace in the family as a whole.

      September 27, 2017 at 2:36 pm

      I’m a disgrace because I’m saying that the reason the Okoye family didn’t approve of Lola was not due to tribe but due to their perception of her character.

      I’m not Mrs Chidukane. I’m not even a woman.
      I’m just saying that there Must be another side to this story.

      do you know what’s happening behind close doors? Bcos Peter released a video that’s putting his brothers in bad light?
      do you know the other half of the story?

      bellanaija did not even publish the entire story. This all started with Paul stating that they were all working in peace until a woman came along.

      I’m not saying Lola is bad. Despite whatever rumors Ppl are saying about her past (and I did say they were rumors…. Not truth for fact) , the truth remains that Peter loves her and they’re married.

      but casting the blame on Peter and Jude when you don’t know the full story is plain foolish.

    I think Lola opened Peter’s eyes to the business aspect of their entertainment being a career woman, Jude who is in charge of that felt threatened and employed the divide and rule technique on the twins.
    I still blame Peter cos he is too hot-headed, he should have handled it all with wisdom and dispassionately.
    They are hurting their brand terribly, unless they have other businesses that will bring in money, they are killing their means of livelihood.
