If we are to start talking about the duo, we could do that from now till heaven knows when. P-Square though twins claim they are one. Going back to their history. P-Square’s net worth would keep soaring higher; remember P-Square are currently Africa’s biggest music export. They are regarded as demi gods in countries like Benin Republic, Ghana, Malawi, Mozambique, The Democratic Republic of Congo where they have already sealed up an endorsement deal as stated in this post below and a host of others.
PSquare: Historical Background
P-Square are from a family of four, born into the Okoye’s family, I could imagine the joy in the family being it double joy for the family. They both attended a missionary school (catholic church) the Saint Murumba secondary school in Jos.
Its not difficult sighting talents, Paul and Peter started way back in their secondary school by joining the school’s music and drama club, thanks goodness money was not involved in joining this club as it is a free social club at secondary school level where they started exhibiting the traits of future artistes. They started by mimicking international artistes like Micheal Jackson, MC Hammer, Bobby Brown and James Brown, also, they have publicly dreamt of working with international artiste Usher.
I remember way back as 2006/07 when they came out with their first album, Many would doubt p square’s net worth would be topping the list of richest musicians in Nigeria.
Fast forward to 1999, P-SQUARE in the quest to go professional, thought it wise to return to music school to develop their skills on musical instruments like the keyboard, drums, bass, rhythm guitar and improve their dancing skills most especially peter.
The Twins in that same year applied to the University of Abuja to study Business Administration, I believe this was done majorly to gain a university degree as it was needed even though they know its not needed for their profession, well, you just never say never in this world of constant changes. The Smooth Criminals disbanded when its members left to various other universities. Subsequently Peter and Paul formed their own group, variously called “Double P”, “P&P”, and “Da Pees”, until they eventually settled on “P Square”. They are managed by Bayo Odusami aka Howie T, a seasoned concert promoter and the CEO of Adrot Nigeria Limited.
Though they have been slammed numerous times for remixing foreign songs, and have been tasked with coming up with original beats, they responded by releasing hit albums back to back, yet they still slammed them for their beats being similar, the truth be told, you cannot satisfy the entire populace, that is why you have your fans that would always stand by you at all times.
Just like other artistes, they have had their own fare share of criticisms, especially on the issue of publicly displaying their personal issues on social media platforms. Many see this as immature and totally unacceptable, though still known as P-Square; they have decided to go solo in pursuit of their musical careers. Paul Okoye now known as RUDE BOY and Peter Okoye now known as MISTER P.
