I have 90 – 100 songs & can drop two albums today if I want to – Rudeboy | WATCH



Paul Okoye a.k.a , Rudeboy sat for an interview with Beat 99.9 FM to discuss going solo, his solo music career and what his fans should expect.

In his interview on morning rush which has just been released after it aired days ago, Rudeboy said from the 1st of November, he made a decision to take everything seriously and move on from the drama with his brother Mr P, in preparation for 2018.

When asked about the issue with his family, he said he doesn’t want to “play politics” about music and won’t be talking about his family issues in public as no one does that and as a result of this, didn’t answer some questions fans sent out as regards his brother.

Speaking on Tweeting about their family issues, he said he thinks he was very stupid, adding that something got into him. He said he regrets making comments and asked that his fans to forgive him.

Rudeboy also revealed that he doesn’t know if there will be a P Square song again or if he is interested in doing one. When asked if he was going to perform alone, Paul said he’ll be performing at the just concluded PhynoFest in Enugu. Olisa pushed further, asking him if he won’t feel awkward looking across the stage and not seeing his brother, he said it’s a new year for him and all that is gone is gone since November 1st.

The music  star also said he was supposed to bring out a solo album next year, he wasn’t supposed to drop his new singles but he felt he needed something to start his “new year” (November 1st).

He said he has been living in the studio for the past few weeks and has 90-100 songs available, adding that he could drop two albums today if he wants to, ending his statement with “My eye don open, dey just free lion commot for cage.”

Maria asked him how he felt when people say he can’t sustain his career alone, he said he laughs it off adding that he is not talking anymore adding that his music will speak for itself.

A fan sent in a question, asking if the brothers could make up and get back together and he replied saying “No be me sign paper say wan commot”

Lastly, he was asked about his working relationship with his brother Jude Okoye and he said “There used to be three of us, now there’s two of us; Jude is still my manager”

      I watched the entire interview and all I can say is: God Pls heal this family.

      Only insiders know the full story.

      I just saw Paul not trying to create more controversy. Cos it’s a case of ‘damned if you do, damned if you don’t’ for him. As someone pointed out, he’s not a charismatic person… He just saysbit as it is. No airs.

      I wish Paul and Peter all the best in their solo careers. I hope they’ll concentrate more on their music, make peace with each other and I hope to hear a collabo from them in future. What a joy that would be!

      You people should stop with this abuse. Let the men be. If Peter want to go his way, let him, if Paul wants to go let him be. All you have to do is wish them well. It is called Solo in the music industry but ya all dumb ass hypocritics don’t know that. It’s Solo that begat the Michael Jacksons, the Diana Ross, the Tuface, the Beyonce, the Bobby Browns, the Justin Timberlake, the Siqcos,the Wyclef, the Lauren Hills, the Ice cubes, the Busta Rhymes (Do your research) should I keep mentioning? It is called Solo people! Use your mf brain! Enough with the abuses and mind your goddamned business, these guys are being booked everyday and you are there drinking their Panadol.

    It must be hard been stuck to someone like say you’re not answering questions but giving rude replies about your brother to belittle still sound like p square on your song..
    No difference..same old sound…entitlement allover

  4. Meek??

    November 29, 2017 at 2:53 am

    Meek you say @nnenne. After he gave this interview. He gave another one in Enugu around the time he went for Phynofest. And he was bragging and shading his brother again! Go and watch it. Or better still BN should post it:

    He stated that he is a musician, not just an artist, that artists don’t have talent, they just have was one small thing to show. He also claimed he isn’t the type of artist to use video to promote his music. So he released audios first to see how far his music will go. And he bragged about the reception his music got. He also shaded his brother by saying he doesn’t follow trend. Which is a major lie. Psquare shekini is similar to Lil’s kesh first hit song. Their last group single Away is pom pom music ( runtown rings a bell?). he claim he is the singer and the be it of psquare yet he is now saying he doesn’t follow trend. Even his latest solo effort sounds like Daddy showkey. A style brought back by Burna boy in one of his hit songs that others followed for a while before they switched to another style.

    His “bestie”, Timaya had reinvented himself during wizkid music takeover era by following the same trend of music then before he finally found his own sound. So I don’t get why he hold Timaya in high regards yet throw his own brother under the bus several times. And now that that one won’t stop talking people are thinking Paul is the meek one. SMH.

    The attitude and the way he said all the things he said in his latest interview was full of pride. You can definitely understand why his brother has been suffering from insecurities about the whole ” they say I am a dancer, not a singer” ish. And that shade about not releasing video to sell his music was at his brother whom obviously released his music with videos. This is exact same davido did with both his latest hits (FIA & agogo or whatever it is called). Even on BN here. You will see A-list artists release an audio today and video within 2days to a week. Some will release the audio in the morning and the video few hours later or by afternoon. The competition is high now. So I don’t see why he should be shading people for their marketing strategies.

    Peter, you too you need to get over the whole sidelining and being thrown on their the bus issue. Yes, I know your elder brother brought the whole family issue to the public by deliberately not attending your wedding. That was the very first time, the public got a glimpse into the crack within your group and family. And it is unfair that the public came hard on your wife and nuclear family. But you got to just focus on your music. Sure, keep bragging since you said it is a marketing strategy. Keep being your extroverted self. But stop giving interviews about your brothers. Your cry for help isn’t being heard. You can’t vindicate yourself in the eyes of Nigerians, they are too sentimental. If space will help you heal for now. Continue to have all the space you want till you overcome whatever is still hurting you. Because to me your constant talk comes from a place of pain and hurt, so your denial that you have moved on isn’t true. For over 3 years now, you have been saying the same thing. Don’t become a broken record.

    This break up is good for you both. You both need more work. Challenge yourselves. If Celine Dion and Barbara Streisand can still be making money off music and shows at their age, so can you guys. Break the record. A group can split and all can be successful. And this can start from you guys. Eventually you will earn your respect from your brothers when you don’t care about such validation anymore. I don’t know why people are harsh on you. Your brothers show off as much as you do. Just because you are more extroverted shouldn’t mean you should be picked on. But it is all part of being in the public eye. Just stay focused. And develop all your skills and sound.

    May God enter the hearts of each and everyone of you, so you can all resolve your family issues. And I wish you all discernment in order to better your person and move ahead to the next stage in your life, career and as a whole family.

    Anyway, excuse my typos/grammatical errors. Can’t believe I even wrote this much. No time to proofread. Just another one of your fans (psquare) that is tired of all these your nonsense.

    P.S. BN, your site is way too slow. It is now blacking out. Basically, it shows black screen while scrolling.

    In my opinion, Paul is the better singer and song writer. His songs are sweeter to me.

  6. Awesome

    November 29, 2017 at 6:06 am

    @Yellow Sun, Why won’t he sound like Psquare, has he not been the official Psquare song writer from Day One. He should now change his writing style and be singing for “my head oo” (Lol) and nursery rhymes in the name of song because he has gone solo. You no dey serious!
    Rudeboy abeg stay focus and give us good jams, we are rooting for you, you are more mature…

    [P.S : I have a CRUSH on Peter, but more RESPECT for Paul ]

    You can drop 10 crappy albums for all I care. We don’t want none of that. Go and use that one to win Grammy. Agbaya oshi! Better focus on making music for the love of music and not music to prove that you’re a better artiste than your brother. You see, people already realise that you are a better singer but we love Mr P like that, inugo? You may be a talented singer and songwriter but your brother is a talented dancer and performer.

    Meek, u said it all, GOD bless u. In as much as its a bit tough removing Jude from d group,since he’s been there since d inception of Psq, as long as he remains in their business, there will never b peace between Peter& Paul. Peter 4me anytime , any day.

  12. Family bond sometimes

    November 29, 2017 at 4:52 pm

    If you knew them personally,you will know Paul is not meek though! Calm,introspective?good song writer? Yes! but what always comes to my mind anytime they are together even before the wahala is the word RESENTMENT! not even hatred but resentment.. i do not know what that gragra extroverted bro has done to him in the corner of the home,he cant seem to hide the feeling, ask people in the entertainment industry who had worked with them,make up artistes, photographers, OAPs. etc I am interested in the academic aspect of it (communication and psychology ) because that is my area of study. I have two uncles who dont get along with each other but are very good with other siblings,they are both in their seventies now and my late father and all family members couldn’t bring them together. Do you have an experience like this also?what do you think can cause siblings to resent or dislike each other?
