Peter Okoye dissociates himself from a P-Square show
The Okoyes brouhaha seems to be far from over. Last night, Peter Okoye of P-Square, who has left the group and gone solo, took to his Instagram page and threaten to sue anyone who used his image in P-Square to book shows without his permission.
The singer shared the flier above and called out his brother and elder brother/former manager, Jude, for promoting a P-Square show instead of Rudeboy.
"Disclaimer: This goes out to all my Fans in Congo Specifically and the entire world in General. My attention has been drawn to a much publicised show holding today 8th July, 2016(VIP SHOW) and tomorrow 9th July, 2016,(in Goma) and on the 17th of August in Kinshasa wherein the name Psquare was used maliciously and mischievously to garner patronage and huge fans attendance as against the stage name Rudeboy which is used when my Twin Brother, Paul, and Co-owner of the stage name Psquare performs alone.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 promoters and the sponsors of these events for character assassination and malicious misrepresentation. Thank you. MR.P (Peter of Psquare).
New evidence from a staff at Airtel East Africa, now show that Peter was aware of the show, he endorsed and promoted it. The staff claims Peter waited for them to start promoting the show before giving them outrageous conditions and then pulled out and went online to do a disclaimer.
