What Peter And Paul Okoye Need To Understand?

Avatar | - Leave A Comment

United we stand, divided we fall is definitely the case with the defunct P-Square, now separated to be Mr. P and Rudeboy. The duo rolled like a perfect twin until they decided to call it quits for the last time, last year. One thing became obvious after their separation and that is the fact that each one of them played a part in their combined growth as P-Square.

During the active period of the group, their style of art seemed to centre on two core elements – a style of music that draws influences from R&B, pop and Afrobeat; and Michael Jackson-esque dance. It was generally assumed that Rudeboy possessed more music giftings while Mr P was taken as the star dancer of the group.

Upon the announcement of their split, the echoes of their different specialties grew louder as fans kept their eyes peeled for which of the twins would make better songs, which one would command a larger fanbase and which one would be the better all-around artist that can replicate the success of P-Square, or at least something close as a solo artist.

It has been over one year since their most recent breakup and from their solo releases; Rudeboy seems more like the “music guy” while Mr P comes off as the likeable guy whose art is complemented by impression-enhancers like wowing dance skills, electrifying music videos and interesting activities on social media. That explains why Mr. P commands almost twice as many followers on Instagram as his twin and former music partner.

Rudeboy however has been enjoying a little more music success with well-received singles like “Somebody Baby” and “NkejiKeke”, which suggests he was the brain behind PSquare classics like “Bizzy Body”, “No One Like You”, “Chop My Money” and “ Bank Alert” because of the similarities these songs share with his solo releases. Mr P’s music leans towards fast-tempo, pounding beats like “Ebeano”, that makes one want to dance, music like “Ejeajo” and “Personally”, which he performed alongside Rudeboy under the P-Square unit.

Clearly, the beauty of Mr. P’s art is different from that of Rudeboy; while the music of the former holds its beauty in the sound and its dance-suggestive nature; the latter makes music that could serve as food to a hungry soul – the theme of his songs give them essence. A combination of both approaches to art made P-Square one of the biggest music entities on the continent but as fractional parts; neither of Rudeboy and Mr. P has been able to replicate such success.

Their separation makes them appear as segregated parts of a system that cannot function efficiently without the other – like a matchstick without a matchbox. The team spirit that existed during their time as P-Square appears to have been replaced by an unhealthy competition that threatens to cost them both their collective and individual goodwill. As it is now, none of the two artists is nearing the P-Square-level and fans have been asking questions of their individual artistry. One of the most pronounced comments on the current situation of the duo was a tweet that read;

“How many unsuccessful singles till Rudeboy and Mr. P decide to have sense.”

It is obvious, at least to observers, that the Mr. P versus Rudeboy thing is not working as the P-Square brand did. The most logical thing to do at this point should be to settle their differences and separate personal issues from the business. Fans are actually tired of the sight of a head without the body and a body without the head. Recall that when their separation was made public, they came back and delivered a hit single which they called “Bank Alert”. There could still be more hits in Mr. P and Rudeboy, if only they agree to serve them as offerings from P-Square.

    Too exclusive. Com is clearly jealous of Mr P . it’s a shame that this article failed to mention Mr P’s hits…For my head, Look into my eyes, Ebeano etc….his efforts have yielded fruit. Please desist from your veiled strategy of attempting to pull him down. I will pay any amount just to watch Mr P. Mr P is an inspiration. My name is Joy.

    I agree with you joy. Mr p is doing it internationally, killing shows and having international nominations as solo artist. He is having so many unrelease credible songs and keeping it real. Yet he is the one that refuse to brag. Rudboy maybe trying but Mr p 80% ahead.

    As it is in the bible we all sin and God forgives us What ever that have cost them to split must be hard tobunferstand but as human we have to understand for example for a friendship to work between two boys or two girls one must be fool to the other and if the two are wise there will no be any friendship because the van not agree to each other they should think of their mum how she will feel the two should let by hone be by gone come back together Am make their family proud again let not any thing come between them forgiveness is things of the heart and secondly their wife’s are not acting like a good wife the see that their husbands been twin nothing should come between what effort have they make to bring them together let me ask were is there power of a woman is they can be in the house and two bloody twin will be separated what have they achieved since the they should watch their music concept and every thing about them is been forgotten to me the both wife are not to be called good house wife they are worst house wife’s I pray for God to give them the heart to come back as one

    I have a feeling that they will come back. Fly away peter,fly away Paul. Come back peter,come back Paul.For me I still like their individual effort. Checkout cool it down and reality but I love their combined effort. Been following them since they released last night.. For me they are my number one musician any day.I miss videos directed by Jude Engees Okoye.

    Well for me as a long time fan I would love to say this but at this point no one cares anymore. The world has changed and the Psquare break up has shown that the 2 of them equally contribute to their success. In quote ” to be successful you need two things Talents and Brains”.
    Rudeboy obviously is the talent while Mr P is the brains. But right now either of them ain’t making sense
