In what looked like anger and an attempt to make the other member of the PSquare (Peter Okoye) less important, Paul Okoye had yesterday meticulously created posts that literarily said “PSquare is nothing without me.” He came up with the titles of their most successful songs and said “written, produced and performed by me.” After making their fans argue whether it was right for Paul [Okoye] to tag any PSquare’s songs as his and waiting for the controversy to be picked by the burgeoning blogging community, the “Rudeboy” made a u-turn and posted a photograph that reads “Keep Calm and Just Chill.”
He captioned it
You people have started again.
Really? While some fan commented that….
The joke is expensive if it is.dnt light matches if dere is no need to.We really dnt want to know who sang each song cus we r [not] interested in lovin one nd leavin the other. The songs came 4rm psquare nd its fine by us.I hv bin ur fan 4 years nd I feel dt if yhu continue ds joke or opinion of urs,u will loose fans.so do not lead to ur own downfall. I think dere is a limit to everything. Let it just end here.
… I could not help but notice how faithful people can be to these guys. I also noticed something else… this is absolutely another PSquare publicity stunt. The kind Peter Okoye and his wife Lola pulled off just less than one week ago.

Peter had posted the photograph of some hot chic cooking in the kitchen and captioned it “#NowSingle&Searching” On the same day, Lola Omotayo Okoye, Peter‘s wife posted the photograph of a sexy looking dude (Boris Kodjoe) and captioned it “Nothing like a God fearing super sexy man…”
That set the internet ablaze. Bloggers immediately said there was a problem in the marriage of Peter and Lola. One of our writers did an “exclusive” on it. When I saw the time difference of the posts (Lola posted first), it was obvious there was no problem at all because in marriage, the woman always retaliate. She does not do the first punch especially in things as “publicly extramarital” as posting the photograph of a sexy looking man. I did not approve or publish the story. I said “these people are playing. If you want this story published, go and rewrite it.”
So when Paul Okoye made that u-turn, I told someone, “PSquare is going to announce something they consider important and big soon… now that they have our attention”
Then 5+ hours later, gbam…! Peter and Paul announced PSquare USA and Canada Tour at the same hour.
The purported “issues” in Peter [Okoye] ‘s marriage and the feelings Paul [Okoye]’s post stirred were all geared towards one thing… publicity and guess what… they are getting it. After all, here am I writing about them. But how long will these “pranks for publicity” continue to work? Moreover people will finally figure you out and when a real alarm comes, you will miss out in their prayers and moral support because they will see the alarm as another publicity stunt.
This has been my opinion. What is yours? How much publicity stunt is too much? Should there be no limits as long as the end “justifies” the means?
