Peter Okoye blows hot!

11 July 2016, 11:06

Lagos - One half of Psquare, Peter Okoye has continued to dissociate himself from a controversial concert in Congo.

In a  lengthy piece, he writes on how his twin brother, Paul Okoye  is deceiving promoters and  his desire to deploy his legal arsenal to ensure this fraudulent and mischievous act is addressed and any further recurrence prevented.

Peter Okoye claims that he was  informed by the organizers of the show that it had been cancelled four  days ago whilst money paid had been fully returned.

 He said that It was surprising to learn that the show was still scheduled to hold on July 9 and August 17, and that his twin brother and Co-owner of the Psquare brand, Paul Okoye lied to the press.

“Why did Paul say that I was sick and unable to make the show when in fact, I am hale and hearty?” he said in the statement.

Part1: Again, my attention has been drawn to a publication specifically uploaded on Linda Ikeji's Blog. For the umpteenth time and in order to set the records explicitly straight, I never stated that I was not aware of the show, I simply stated that the contractual obligations were not favorable to me. In fact I was authoritatively informed by the organizers of the show that the show had been cancelled 4 days ago whilst money paid had been fully returned. It was, therefore, surprising to learn that the show was still scheduled to hold on 9th July, 2016 (@ Goma) and 17th August, 2016 (@ Kinshasa- VIP and Live concert) with the false statements being peddled that I was sick and unable to make the flight to Congo with my crew two nights ago to attend the show, in the first instance and my Twin Brother and Co-Owner of the Psquare brand granting a presumed Psquare press conference wherein he stated contradictory facts that I am not present because I missed my flight. This is gross deception at its peak and no one in his right thinking mind will allow such falsehood to fester. I must reiterate that I owe my fans and by extension, fans of Psquare the obligation to speak the truth at all times and prevent a situation where the Psquare brand will be built on deception. It is my utmost belief that such a foundation based on falsehood will only create a damning consequence for the brand in the long run. The issue at stake here is fraudulent misrepresentation of my continued endorsement, participation and use of the Psquare brand without my consent or authority being sought or obtained. The purported Video posted on some blogs wherein it was alleged that I endorsed the show is self explanatory. In the said video, the days slated for the show to hold were 2nd July, 2016 @ Goma and 9th July, 2016 @ Kinshasa, however that video was recorded months ago. The show are slated to hold now on 9th July, 2016 @ Goma and 17th August, 2016 @ Kinshasa- VIP and Lives concert, thus it is easily discernible from the said Video that a new video was required but was not obtained due to inconclusive negotiations between my management and the promoters of the show. Cont'd...

Part2: I was told the show has been cancelled and money returned. I will not continue to fold my hands when there exists a situation calculated to foster disunity and lack of good faith with the brand. There are specific questions begging for answers here: How come Paul never advertised this show upon landing in Congo on any of his social media handles as its customary when artistes are scheduled to perform? Why did Paul say that I was sick and unable to make the show when in fact, I am hale and hearty? Why did Paul grant a Psquare press conference stating that I missed my flight and I will arrive for the show, knowing fully well, I am not aware of the continuance of the show? All of these actions were calculated to deceive the fans and fraudulently misrepresent the facts all in a bid to make money in a none transparent manner and economically assassinate my character, goodwill and credibility. It is important to speak out for sake of posterity and of course, all my legal Arsenal will be deployed to ensure this fraudulent and mischievous act is addressed and any further recurrence prevented. Please Note that my loyalty will always remain to the brand PSQUARE. Thank you.
