Over the years, we’ve heard people say that the special bond that exists between twins is one that is indivisible as they feel safer with each other than with anybody else. These cliches have guided our minds to view twins (especially identical twins) as pairs that cannot be separated by human or social factors thus making the news of the unending rift between the Psquare twins (Peter and Paul) a shocker whenever a new dust is raised.
The duo have had repeated public fallouts for over 3 years and it appears that the brothers are at it again as they have been observed jabbing at each other on social media.
How did the most famous African twin rockstars turn out to be a subject of public analysis?
Here is a timeline of when it all started to where it has gotten.
1. In October 2014, Peter Signed a solo Endorsement deal
In 2014, Peter Okoye, one half of the P-Square group signed a solo endorsement deal with Olympic Milk which was a shift from the norm as the duo have been know for always snagging ambassadorial roles as a pair. Though the singer refused to make any comments on why it was a solo score, we definitely had our suspicions.
2. In November 2015, Peter signed yet another solo endorsement deal
When Peter signed another solo endorsement deal with Adidas in 2015,it became clear that the brothers were getting used to flying solo- more so that the Adidas deal came immediately after Peter kicked off his reality dance show ‘Dance with Peter’ .The show was sponsored by telecommunications company – Glo, despite that fact the brothers had an existing joint endorsement deal with the company.
3. Psquare Celebrated their 34th Birthday Separately
On the 18th of November 2015, the Square brothers celebrated their 34th birthday apart. Peter celebrated with his wife, Lola Omotayo and their two kids and Paul also had some family time with his wife Anita and son, Andre.

On the 17th of February 2016, the feud became public as Peter who had seemingly turned into the usual suspect went on a Twitter rant insisting that the Psquare management which is headed by their older brother Jude Okoye must be dropped for Psquare to continue.
Following Peter’s blow out, Paul also took to Twitter to pledge his allegiance to their older brother Jude Okoye thus leaving his twin brother Peter on the sideline.
‘And cutting me off from a picture and replacing me with a studio set says it all my bro. All because you want to sound matured and letting the people insult and laugh at me. Peter Okoye the social media rant. I wish you well in all you do my bro. God bless our hustle.’ Those were Peter’s words as he announced the end of Psquare as a group.
