The duo of Paul and Peter Okoye of P-Square fame have claimed that if it wasn’t for their separation, the likes of Wizkid, Davido, Burna Boy and others wouldn’t have dominated the afrobeats music scene.

The twin musical duo stated that they dominated the Nigerian and African music scene for nearly 14 years until they briefly disbanded in 2016, giving way for others to shine.

P-Square appeared on a recent episode of The 77 Podcast.

Reacting to claims that afrobeats gained global recognition when they were apart, Peter said, “Says who? They never said that.”

Paul added, “Let me tell you something, I’ve been hearing that. Even if they put it that way, it means some way God has his own way. If we were there [together in the music industry] those people [dominant music stars] there would have never been light for them. And don’t forget, we’ve dominated the [Nigerian] music industry for a long time. We held it down for nearly 13,14 years.”

  1. Hahah are you sure. Nigerians has a lot of talented musicians. Have their own reign, so if yours have passed it is gone so don’t try and say that if you and your brother hasn’t splited, Wizkid, davido wouldn’t have been the King of afrobeat that is not how it works,
    how it works is when you are good you’re good and that doesn’t mean new people new talents will not come and shine.
    Let me tell you something in the next 2 years, you will see a new set of people who are giving Nigerians what they want so it was your time some years back and right now please rest.
