Mr.P vs Rudeboy . . Whose Song Hits The P-Square Standard?

| - Leave A Comment

Africa-famous music group, P-Square broke into two halves this year, after many back and forths in the past. Since the announcement of the split, the two have been handed separate slates to write new histories and impress the crowd of fans paying attention.

In about a month since the start of the journeys of the two brothers, each one has released two tracks with the hope of convincing fans of how much  individual input they had in the music of P-Square that had so much essence that it garnered millions of music lovers.

We selected the most recent song of each of the brothers for review.
Read our thoughts on Mr.P’s For My Head and Rudeboy’s Fire Fire here:

Mr.P – For Your Head

Review by Ibironke Oluwatobi (@ibironketweets)
From his two releases so far, it is easy to spot Mr.P’s preference for cool RnB music. He might have been the brain behind P-Square songs like Temptation and Say Your Love. For My Head is made from the same material and although I’d love to sing this song to Nkechi, I would frown at any DJ who plays it at a party or at a club I’m present in.

Rating: 3/5

Cool, smooth and sweet are adjectives we can use to describe Mr.P’s For My Head. And it is the pon pon sound, oh what an excitement! You almost can’t fault Peter on an R&B track because it’s become popular knowledge how well-honed he is in that category. But then again, this song confirms my thoughts on Peter’s defect in the lyrical division. The song started really well, and was pretty informing before it gave in easily to terribly watered down lines. If Peter must be emancipated from the erroneous impression of an artiste being formed of him, then he needs to do better. Good attempt anyways (for the pon pon sound sake).


Rudeboy – Fire Fire

Review by Ibironke Oluwatobi (@ibironketweets)
Rudeboy’s Fire Fire versatility oozes on this dance hall track. His fine infusion of pop vocals is enough reason to think that he conceptualized a lot of P-Square’s pop hits. His other track, Nkenji Keke is strong in it’s RnB elements but I’d rather have Mr.P’s songs on my RnB playlist. Rudeboy however impressed with his ability to  create songs from different genres and this might turn out to be his biggest strength & advantage.

Rating: 3/5

First off, it’ll take a while for people to adjust to the individual sound of the Okoye brothers. Both of them had contributed inputs from their different music elements to form the P-Square sound. However, Paul’s latest records makes it seem as if he’s been P-Square all these while, especially if we’re to relate with many of the Afro-popular hit songs churned out from the duo in past times. Now, Fire Fire is not typically a favourite song (that’s in my opinion though) but regardless, I just love the way it sounds, particularly the riffs from the bass line, which I think added some extra saccharine to the song. It’s a satisfactory attempt although Paul can still do better.
