Paul Okoye breaks silence since marriage crash
The singer stated during a conversation with OAP Dotun that he prefers the public not to pry into his personal life as the defunct group with his twin brother, P Square already paid the price for their family problems.

Speaking about the ongoing conundrum in his family, Paul OKoye stated;
“I hate waking up anytime and just see people saying things you know. Whatever that happens is just a thing of choice and one thing you need to do is to try and respect people that wake up one day and say they don’t want to do anymore, okay.
“Like I always tell people, it is such an unfortunate family problem which I think is nobody’s business to know, but it’s so unfortunate that Psquare has to pay the price for it.”

“We made peace and he apologized.
“I have no single problem with AY as claimed.
We don’t talk.”
