Jos, the capital of Plateau State has produced alot of musicians who are successful in the Nigeria music industry. Some of them are Ice Prince, M.I, Jessy Jag, Ruby Gyang and the defunct Psquare. All these music stars started their career from Jos, a city known for cold weather and rocky land scape. Among all these artists, Psquare has made Jos proud. From performing on the street to being the biggest name in the music industry. Although the twin brothers now have gone their separate ways music wise, but the name Psquare will never die as long as music is concerned in Nigeria. Three years after the group split, the twin brothers are doing there musics separately. But before we check out their beautiful pictures when they were Psquare, Let me profile this twin brothers who are husbands, fathers and breadwinners.


Rude boy

Peter and Paul Okoye were born on November 1981 in Jos, the capital of Plateau State. They attended St. Murumba Secondary School, a Catholic Secondary School in Jos. At St. Murumba, they joined their school drama and music club where they sang and mimicked songs of Michael Jackson whom they adorned so much. While at school, both formed a group called MMMPP under which they performed at different school functions in Jos. They left the group and returned to music school in 1999 to develop their skill in playing drum, keyboard and guitar. Later in 1999, they were admitted into the University of Abuja to study Business Administration. There music career took off in 2001 when they won Grab Da Mic competition. Later in 2007, they released their best-selling album Game Over which sold over 8 million copies worldwide. Since then, they have continued to grow in the music industry in Nigeria and beyond winning several awards. 

The Split Of Psquare

In 2017 what sounded like a rumor became official after both came out to state that they are not together again. Some Nigerians were surprised after the twins ruled Nigeria music industry for close to 10 years. Some people speculated then that it was money and women that came in between them. But Peter in an interview with Premium Times, who is elder of the twins said that it was not about money nor women but because his brother Paul betrayed him. According to him he wanted Psquare restructured, and his brother Jude step down as manager.

Jude Okoye

He said that it was from there that Paul and Jude worked against him as Paul did alot of songs alone with other artists without him but will want him to involve only in the videos. But the rest is now history. The twin brothers are now doing there thing separately. Peter has his stage name as Mr. P while Paul has his as Rude Boy. 

Below are throw back photos of the twins when they were still together as Psquare. 

Some Nigerians want Peter and Paul to unite as because they think they were better and more entertaining as Psquare. Both are really talented. While to me Peter is a better dancer, Paul is a better singer. Both were awesome as Psquare back then.
