Atttorney to twin singing sensation, Peter, and Paul of the Psquare group, Festus Keyamo (SAN), has reacted to a viral video showing the singing duo and their elder brother, Jude Okoye almost getting physical after a verbal exchange.
In a statement he issued on Tuesday evening and posted on micro-blogging site, Twitter, Keyamo urged Nigerians to give the Okoye’s the privacy they deserve.
The attorney stressed that the viral video was shot in May 2016 and not recently as widely speculated.
In the video, Paul could be heard saying: “Peter shame on you, Paul say shame on you”, while Peter asked if Paul wants to go physical with him. Some people in the office stopped the three brothers from going physical.
The Okoye’s used foul language and threatening words on each other in the 52-seconds video seen by Nigeria’s burgeoning online media platforms, a situation that raised series of questions on Twitter with the group topping the Nigerian Twitter trend.
Reacting to the development, Keyamo called for calm, adding that no one’s life is at risk despite the grievances expressed by the three brothers in the viral video.
While some had alleged that Peter’s wife, Lola was behind the twin feud, Keyamo stated that the wives of the three brothers have kept “their respectable and dignified distance from all the issues involved”.
Meanwhile, Peter had earlier sent a termination letter to Keyamo, demanding for a termination of the agreement between Psquare.
Peter defended his decision by making some serious allegations against his twin Paul and elder brother and group manager Jude.
In the letter, Peter said Paul is no longer willing to co-operate with him, even going as far as cancelling their planned US tour this year without informing him, and he (Peter) has exhausted all options to make it work.
Peter who is also known by his stage name, Mr. P, accused Paul of slandering his wife and children with lies on social media and alleged that they’ve now been receiving threatening messages.
