Mother of Nigerian entertainers, Peter and Paul Okoye popularly known as P-Square is dead. We gathered that Mrs. Okoye lost the battle to a sickness which has not been disclosed. No word yet from Peter, Paul, Tony, Jude and the rest of the Okoye siblings. But those close to them have confirmed that at the intial stage of her illness she was taken to St. Nicholas Hospital, one of the most expensive medical centres in Nigeria. She was later flown to India for further treatment. Unfortunately, she died while responding to treatment last night.
Immediately the news broke, friends and collegues have been sending condolence messages to the Psquare family.
Mrs. Okoye was fond of attending her son’s events as often as she can, her last public appearance was at the P-Square Invasion concert in August 2011. An unrepentant supporter of her kids, the late Mrs. Okoye, although a Christian minister, encouraged pop duo Peter and Paul with their music careers, giving her full backing long before it became profitable; even at the risk of upsetting her husband who would have none of it.
