Psquare Open Up About The Cause Of The Infamous Fight That Nearly Ripped Them Apart [Watch]

A few weeks ago PSquare released their sixth studio album “Double Trouble”, but that album almost never saw the light of day due to the rift between the Okoye brothers (Peter, Paul & Jude) which threatened to break them up and put their fans in a frenzy. The bitter rift got so bad at one point that the beloved Okoye brothers reportedly came to blows during a rehearsal.

If you thought their rift was because of money or the women (some fans chose to cyber bully Peter’s wife Lola as the purported cause of the quarrel) in their lives you are wrong. Peter & Paul revealed during their insightful interview on The Truth with Olisa Adibua that their epic beef was all because of “the music”. Peter wanted to try new things, have more of creative input & Paul was of the opinion that if it ain’t broke don’t fix it!

During the interview Peter Okoye said,

It wasn’t about money, it wasn’t about women, it’s just a normal thing. The way you argue or quarrel with your siblings, it’s normal. The only sad thing about this is that it got out. When it was happening, we were still performing in shows. So people took our private lives, to our business, which I don’t blame them. I don’t blame these fans because we owe them a lot of apology. But for the fact that they took it too far, I and Paul had a mere argument, and it was about music.

Winning!!! Less That 24 Hours After It’s Release Wizkid 2nd Album “AYO” Climbs To Number 1 On The iTunes Chart

Wizkid dropped his highly anticipated 2nd album “AYO” less than 24 hrs ago, way ahead of it’s scheduled Sept. 23rd release date. There’s already been a lot of speculation about whether the album was leaked or if he was trying to pull a Beyonce with the surprise release. Shortly after the album dropped on iTunes, Wizkid tweeted,

They leaked my shit!!! It’s all Good still!

He later deleted the tweet!

From what I know it’s impossible to leak an album to iTunes (the world’s largest online music retailer) and as Jaguda rightly pointed out if the album was leaked why is it still being sold on iTunes?

In my opinion it was all just a marketing ploy to get people buzzed about the album and also to prevent it from actually leaking not fake leaking on iTunes where it is being sold for $9.99

Anyways leaked or not, Wizzy is definitely winning! Less than 24 hours after the album dropped it is already number 1 on the iTunes World chart. P-Square’s “Double Trouble” is Number 4.

Wizkid is taking a page out of the Beyonce handbook on “how to drop your album when your fans least expect it”. If you recall Beyonce dropped her 5th studio album last December in the dead of the night on iTunes when no one expected it, with absolutely no promo beforehand. It went on top iTunes charts globally and become the best selling album ever on iTunes

We knew Wizzy’s album was dropping soon but we didn’t realize it would be today!

Earlier today music website Not Just OK released their definitive list of the 10 hottest music acts in Nigeria for 2014.

It’s interesting to see that the music site has named Davido as the hottest act of the year, while his rival Wizkid is number 5! To be fair Davido has dominated this year, he has won the Best African Act award at all the major awards shows three times this year! (MTV MAMA, BET & Channel O).

The music industry in Nigeria is obviously still a male dominated field, only two females made NJO top 10 list Tiwa Savage & Yemi Alade! Where are all the other females? Seyi Shay, Emma Nyra, Mo’ Cheddah?!
