PUBLICIST BREAK SILENCE: ‘P-Square’s Break Up Tale Was A Stunt!’


-There Was Never A Fight
While you are reading this, the entire social media scene has been awash with several versions of rumours concerning Nigeria's sensational singing twins, P-Square and their elder brother, Jude Enges Okoye.

However, the rumour according to ICON Weekly's private investigation was founded on assumptions and fabrications, following a controversial tweet by Jude, elder brother to the Okoye twins. The tweet, which was dropped on Friday April 18, 2014 at 1:57p.m. reads: “After over 10 years of hard work, it's over, I'm done.”

The tweet which was not hooked on any subject raised a huge dust as bloggers feasted on it and gave it several interpretations without making out time to do some findings.

As the day went by, more and more interpretations kept hitting the blogsphere.

Things eventually took a new turn, when on Friday, April 25, 2014, the brothers took to their twitter accounts to drop a tweet indicating that they have finally resolved their differences.

In a bid to get the true picture of the scenario, ICON Weekly reporter contacted P-Square's publicist, Mr. Bayo Adetu, who gave us the complete story. The furious Adetu expressed disappointment on members of the Fourth Estate of the Realm whom after a professional training would depend solemnly on bloggers for content. Here is how he narrated it to our reporter exclusively on the phone, read on:

Greetings, Bayo, we heard that the Okoye brothers have finally reconciled, can you give us an insight on what really happened?

(After a long laugh…) “My brother, I'm telling you this as a friend, there was no fight at all. The whole thing started after Jude tweeted some days back and bloggers feasted on it and gave it several interpretations which never existed, and that was how we got here.

“Are you saying there wasn't a fight at all, how then did Peter and Paul keep releasing comments through their Facebook accounts?

“My guy, I can authoritatively tell you that neither of the P-Square brothers, nor even Jude operate their Facebook accounts anymore. Whatever Facebook posted was from an impersonator, pretending to be anyone of them. P-Square is active on twitter, not on Facebook, so you see, the whole thing was founded on lies.

“If what you are saying is true, why did they all tweet a re-conciliatory tweet this morning indicating that they have mended fences?

“There's one thing you should know, P-Square are not politicians, and neither are they businessmen to be worried about what one useless blogger or the other has to say about them.

“In this game, bad publicity is good publicity. When we read those funny posts, we decided to play along with the general public and what they were meant to believe.

“Yesterday, Thursday, April 24, 2014 was Jude Okoye's birthday and he also used the opportunity to propose to his girlfriend while we laughed at the stupidity of some Nigerian bloggers.

“We later decided to further play into their hands by reaching a consensus to tweet what they have termed the 'reconciliation tweet'.

“However as a journalist, I am pained that trained journalists allow themselves to be remoted by Linda Ikeji, a mere blogger without any professional training to stall them from investigating serious news material like this. These days, immediately Linda posts anything on her blog, journalists just go there and copy and paste the story without any checks and balances, it is outrightly wrong, I'm really upset about this.

“She called me after posting the story and I just decided to ignore her calls, because I didn't think we had anything more to say when the milk has been spilt.

“I have taken my time to explain to you this way because you are a friend and did not join the bandwagon.

“As for those bloggers out there, I allowed them to write whatever they like; after all, they are consuming their internet data, not mine.”
