Lagos - Former manager of Psquare, Howie T reveals what Peter Okoye told him about the Psquare break up, reports Nigerian Entertainment Today(NET)
Howie T, now a record label and experiential marketing executive, was Psquare’s manager from 2001 to 2005, after which their brother Jude Okoye, a former musician himself, took over as the band’s manager.
Howie T asked the public to respect their opinion, and said Peter Okoye told him that his senior brother/ manager Jude Okoye was the problem of Psquare.
Howie T said Peter told him that in a normal setting, a manager is supposed to be their employee and not the other way round, but Jude always uses his influence as their elder brother to boss over them. He also said managers collect between 15 – 25 % of an artiste’s income but in their case they share everything equally and he’s not happy with that sharing formula.

Peter also told Howie T that Jude has started telling event organizers what it takes to get Peter and Paul, what it takes to get Peter or Paul alone, and that Peter was angry at the fact that Paul and Jude voted for more of Paul’s songs than Peter’s.
Peter also said that if they change Jude today, there’ll be Psquare tomorrow and sadly the only person that can talk to them is their mother and she’s dead.
