Uc Update - My Brothers Ganged Up Against Me” – Peter Okoye Bares it all in New Interview PT 2

Continuation- from PT 1 - http://unibencritic.blogspot.in/2016/03/uc-update-my-brothers-ganged-up-against.html


On needing a break: I remember going to talk to Paul about it before I went on social media, I went to his house he was in his room with his friend, and I was like can he excuse us, I want to talk to you and Paul said, no, his friend should stay, anything I want to say should be said in front of him. So I said, no, you know we are brothers and he was like, 'oh, na now you know say we be brothers. So I said, I came to talk to him about what's been happening, but it was turning into an argument so I left and I travelled out. I was away for over a month, knowing that we didn't have any show at that time. I went to Turkey, London to rest my mind, my friend Samuel Eto'o invited me to come.
On firing Jude as they manager:The day I fired Jude was at a concert. It was the day I came back, we had a show, so I went straight to the venue in Lagos and told Jude I want to talk to him, and he said I should say anything I want to say in front of everyone. I was like that was the same attitude Paul gave me before I travelled. So Jude was like if I like I should get out, and I was like guy don't embarrass me. He said who are you, because you think you are Psquare? So I told him openly that if he cannot resolve me and Paul's issue, he doesn't deserve to be our manager, and he said I should get out. There and then I told him 'You are fired'! He looked at me and said, 'You fit fire me'?. That was when I entered my car and started Tweeting. How else can you take him out?
On his heartbreaking conversation with Paul:And before I announced my management, I wanted my mind to be clear, so I went back to Paul, this time we were alone and we spoke a lot, I told him I had no issues with him, but he needs to stop letting Jude use him as a shield. Both of us started shedding tears, and when we finished he still said he hopes I'm not here to tell him that I still want Psquare and I told him I want to move on, because he already has a manager (Jude) and I don't, so I had to structure myself too. And I didn't want to allow the Psquare name to fade before moving on. Look at Don Jazzy and Dbanj, when they broke up, they waited for like 6 months and had to start again. Now, that Psquare just broke up, let me use the name to move on quickly, because there's no time.
On if their mum was still alive: To be honest with you, I feel if our mum was still alive, we would have pushed her to her grave with this whole thing. It's really sad that even with everything going on, I still stand with Paul.
On moving on:I hear lot of people think it's all a stunt, and that's what I really want to put an end to. It's not a stunt at all. It has been going on for a while. When Jude didn't come to my wedding, people started saying we broke up and then others said it's a stunt, then when Paul posted those lyrics stuff on Instagram people thought it was a stunt too, but the truth is that, this is not and has never been a publicity stunt. I am telling you the truth, I am moving on because people are already getting tired of this Psquare brouhaha, now I have my manager Olatunde Michaels and I expect everybody to respect that. I am a family man, a musician, singer and dancer, if I don't move on, Psquare will collapse and there'll be nothing left. Already Paul has done two songs without me but no one is saying anything, he did a song with his artiste 'Muno' with his name as Rudeboy did they feature me? He did a song with Tiwa Savage, did they feature me? Last week Yemi Alade sent me her album track list to help her share on Instagram, guess what I saw, she had a song with Psquare that I didn't even know about. Only Paul did it.
On the next steps for him:Because I announced a new management, people feel am the one going solo, but Paul has already gone solo, he's moved on and didn't need to announce any new management because he still works with Jude, so I had to announce mine and believe it or not, people are booking me for gigs already. And guess what, I'll still perform Psquare songs, nobody can stop me, nobody can stop Paul too, we didn't have a contract with Jude, so I have the right to perform Psquare songs especially the ones I took part in. I'll also consider releasing solo songs and even albums. Truth is – in the last album Paul did some songs alone, I did some songs alone. 'Bring It On' was Paul alone, 'Eje Ajo', 'Shekini' was done by me alone. Remember the 4 songs 'Free For Fans' that we released, those songs were removed from the last album and I leaked them. I have some songwriters already, V-Tek writes for me, and I'm still bringing up more'.
On having to share their properties:Because of what was happening, it was like two against one, so I said let's share our properties. When I said that, Paul said if we want to share our properties, Jude must get the same share with us otherwise Psquare will split and I was like 'SPLIT-AGAIN?'. Our lawyer came and told Paul that it's wrong to share it equally with Jude, but he insisted, so we divided every property we owned in Lagos, Jos, America, Abuja. In-fact the right and left wing of the Square Ville mansion belongs to Paul and Jude now. So that was how we shared all our properties equally among the three of us about two or three years ago. Three of us have properties close to each other in Parkview and that's why I want to sell my own and move to Banana Island.
On their wives:People think we changed when we started having wives. Before my mum died, she was at St Nicholas hospital on the island, and my sisters were living in this house (in Lekki), and every morning before my wife goes to work, she'll leave home at 5am in the morning to go and stay with my mum even before we get there ourselves. And when she closes from work, she's back with her again. So I just laugh when I hear people say my mum didn't like my wife. It's my wife and sister that prepare my mum's meals in the kitchen. Now let me shock you: our wives, the three of them are the closest set of people you can imagine. Even with all that's going on. It's really surprising. Somehow, they respect themselves and stayed out of the whole drama and I respect them a lot. And that's somehow what has kept us together for this long, otherwise Psquare would have ended like two or three years back.
On the future of PSquare:The truth is I feel happy it has come, because I've been staying in Psquare in fear for the last four years. The situation now is, if you want Psquare to perform, you'll have to get in touch with two management, I don't care if you pay Paul's management more than they pay me, once we are able to agree Psquare is still there. I just don't want to have a management that feels he's in control because he's my elder brother. And because of the legacy that I want Psquare to be remembered for, that was why I went to talk to Paul the last time. I don't want us to start doing beef songs, or we see at the clubs and we don't greet each other, or ignore our kids and stuff like that. And even if Psquare breaks up, I still want us to have our relationship as brothers. If I've regretted anything in my life so far, I swear to God this is not one of them, I'm happy because I've been in pain for a long time. It's good if we go and do stuff separately so that even IF we come back we'll have respect for each other. I wish Paul the best and I wish Jude the best as well"
