The rift between Peter and Paul Okoye, Nigerian twin music sensation, formerly known as P-Square, had not only affected Nigerian entertainers but many international celebrities including Senegalese-American singer, Akon.
Akon, who spoke to Channels Television on the sidelines of the Expo 2020 Dubai, noted that he was heartbroken after P-Square‘s split many years ago.
Describing the duo as family, Akon stated that the separation may have been due to a lot of pressure in their careers and relationship.
Akon said, “It broke my heart because we are family. These are brothers and they shared the same womb and I always felt money should not get in between them.
“It was being together that made them who they were. But sometimes you have differences [between people from the same] family and there are other aspects of it – there is pressure in the music business, there is a lot of pressure in relationships.”
Meanwhile, the twin brothers, who had been estranged for years, in a viral video in November 2021, triggered emotions from fans and loved ones as they reconciled and embraced each other after many years of messy controversies.
