It was reported that music duo Psquare have parted ways after reports of a renewed rift between the brothers.
Peter Okoye had reportedly written a letter to their lawyer, Festus Keyamo seeking the termination of the Psquare contract saying his brother, Jude has threatened to kill his wife, Lola Omotayo.
The letter dated, September 21 has now surfaced online.
In the letter, Peter said the issues between them persisted but they decided to come together to appease the fans.
He also claimed that their elder brother, Jude hit him and threatened to make a coffin for him.
Read the content of letter below:
“What I am about to do has been a very difficult decision to make. I have decided to use this medium as a means to terminate the agreement between Psquare. I have tried and exhausted all my options to make this work. However, it seems as if Paul is not willing to cooperate. For example, he cancelled our U.S. tour without discussing it with me. Unbeknownst to me, he cancelled each show as we were being booked. He has also been accusing at threatening my wife and family of unimaginable lies via social media outlets. Me and my wife have been getting different threatening messages. I fear for my life and the life of my family. I cannot continue with Psquare in conditions like this that will jeopardise my wellbeing. Remember, Jude has threatened to kill me and shoot my wife in the presence of Paul and Ms. Imoke (former first lady of Cross River state) and repeated it several times in front of you and other individuals.
Last year, at your office, he threatened me to come with my coffin whenever he sees me around his house. He stood up and hit me in front of you and the other lawyers. I have documented video (sic) of when this moment occurred and I have played it for you. One thing for sure, we are family first before Psquare. Last year, we tried to settle the family issues first, but we put that aside to appease the fans while issues were still present. We all agreed and signed that Psquare belongs to Peter, Paul, and Jude. Due to the threats and for the sake of peace, I decided to sign it. We even agreed to shoot and post a video individually to apolofgise to oyr fans. I released my video, however, Paul and Jude refuse (sic) to release theirs. This has tarnished my character (sic) and made me a victim as the bad guy to the public. We all have agree (sic) that as long as Psquare is in existence, we can operate as individuals as long as it doesn’t tamper with the group (sic) songs. I’ve decided to use this medium to pull out of the group and contract. I wish Jude and Paul the best in their careers. I love them and their families, but my family too is important and I cannot betray my wife and kids. My FAMILY COMES FIRST. There has (sic) been so many threats against me and my family and it’s in the best interest of myself and family to move myself from this contract. Thanks so much.
