Peter Okoye, a former member of defunct group, P Square has come under attack from critics on Twitter after he took to the social media platform to reveal that he is better off without his twin brother, Paul Okoye, who is popularly known in music circles as Rudeboy.
The musician may not have expected the deluge of backlash he got when he took to his Twitter page to reveal that ever since he parted ways with his with his brother, he has had peace of mind and aged backward.
Mr P who also attacked those criticising and comparing his success with that of Rudeboy wrote; “Did you all notice since I went solo and became Mr. P I started aging backward. It is called PEACE OF MIND and drinking more water and minding my business.
“Broke people thinking they have an opinion, hustle make you no go dey advice Dangote how to do business,” he added.
The outburst of Mr P on Twitter elicited tons of negative comments by some Nigerians who described him as childish, while others began a trend comparing the estranged P Square brothers.
Captured below are some of the comments gathered from Twitter.
@Mr_chidiebere “Those broke people are the ones that bought your CD’s and downloaded your music and attended your shows and you made money. I remember how broke you and your brother were back in the days when I saw you in port Harcourt eating together from a plate of Indomie.”
@Jezzyking13 “The truth is bitter, how you know anyone is broke and who told you Dangote doesn’t get advice.”
@Imam “Those comparing Rudeboy and Mr. P, there’s actually no comparison. Rudeboy has always been the better half and he’s still till today. Very humble, mature and less dramatic too.”
@Benyzglobal1 “Mr. P I have Commented on your post last time giving you advice concerning how you always blast your followers, Again I repeat one adage that says, Let your Success Speak For You, Don’t always quarrel with people with the reply you get from them when you brag.”
@David “Rude Boy is better that’s Indebatable. It took separation for us to know who was better in Plantashun Boiz the same with Psquare.
“Rude Boy has been the driving force of PSquare over the Years. It’s evident.”
@Numez_onumo “Let’s stop this baseless comparison. Both of them are good. Let’s not pit one brother to another.”
@Iam_zim “Rudeboy will always be better; Mr. P is forcing the whole shit on himself.”
@Lemmysong “Rudeboy is better, he is more successful as a solo artist than Mr. P. Rudeboy is the one carrying Psquare all these years but Rudeboy has no award thus far. Mr. P has with his “Ebeano”
“Just admit you don’t like Mr. P… For me, both are doing well for themselves.”
@Aiijays “It’s easily the one with meaningless lyrics and slangs is Rudeboy and the one with not so meaningful lyrics that likes jumping everywhere as if he’s dancing is Mr. P.”
@Iyke4uu “Mr. P needs to understand that making money and making good music is not entirely the same! Rudeboy makes better music and this their Quarrel is becoming Too childish and stupid! They need to grow up!
