Paul Okoye, currently in Congo for the same show he was threatened over by his brother, Peter Okoye, has been having a successful gig so far.
Despite threats of a lawsuit from Peter Okoye, Paul Okoye goes on to have a successful solo show in Goma, Congo.
On Friday, July 8, 2016, the P Square singer and dancer, took to social media to issue a disclaimer, disassociating himself from a show that bore the P Square brand, while threatening to sue his brothers including former manager, Jude Okoye.
Paul who is currently in Congo with May D, has performed two shows already as Peter remains silent, following his threat.
Sharing the art for the show, part of Peter’s disclaimer read:
“….I never endorsed the usage of my name as the contractual terms presented were not favourable to me, thus I am not part of the show booked by our former manager, Jude and I wholeheartedly disassociate myself from the unauthorized use of my Co-owned stage name (Psquare) and images for promotional and economic reasons without my express written consent or permission.
“Contrary to the wild allegations making the rounds that I could not attend the show because I am sick and missed my flight along with my crew members, I wish to counter same and state categorically, that I am 101% healthy. I shall take appropriate legal actions in the nearest future against the character assassination and malicious misrepresentation. Thank you. MR.P (Peter of Psquare)”
Following issues arising from friction between Peter and Jude earlier this year, the singing and dancing duo split up as Jude got fired from his role as manager, causing bad blood for over a month.
Neither Paul or Jude have responded to the threats issued by Peter.
