Bio


Peter & Paul Okoye popularly known as P-Square are a set of twins originating from Nigeria. Both guys sing and dance tremendously well. Say, you think about putting Usher, Bobby Brown, MC Hammer, R Kelly and Michael Jackson together and adding a touch of Africa in it's entirerity to it. Your first choice in this case would be the duo P Square.

They put together and perform sensational Urban/R&B songs, HipHop jams, dancehall and soul with African touch.

Born to the family of Mr. & Mrs. Moses Okoye, have 7 other sibblings, hail from Ifite Dunu LGA in Anambra State but born and brought up in Jos, Plateau State – Nigeria. They both attended Tempest Private School, Laranto, Jos; St. Murumba College, Jos, Plateau State; and are both graduates of Mass Communication and Business Administration respectively at the University of Abuja - Nigeria.

P Square’s Music is Afrocentric in that it combines western and African rythms in creating a marvelous blend of R&B, Hip Hop and Dancehall songs. Their songs surprisingly appeal to both young and old because they get requested for and/or booked by concert planners, party organisers and events with audiences ranging from 0 to 70 years.

P Square is very successful in Nigeria and relatively popular in other parts of Africa especially in the Western and Southern parts of Africa. Since the release of the album “Get Squared” they are still to perform in any concert hall or gathering that was not full to the brims in Nigeria.

P Square's entry into the Music Industry started during their school days at St. Murumba College Jos. They formed a Dancing Group called SMOOTH CRIMINALS and mainly danced and mimed Michael Jackson's, M.C. Hammer's and Bobby Brown's songs. The group existed for about 5 years. Peter, Paul and two other friends (Michael and Melvin) later formed an Acapella Group called MMPP. The group was unable to withstand the test of time so it disintegrated leaving behind the two Ps - Peter & Paul now known as P square.

Paul always had a keen interest in writing, creating and singing original songs and this led to his going solo after MMPP broke up but Peter, who really held more sway in the Dance/Choreography business, soon joined him. Paul single handedly wrote “last nite”, which eventually became their first song ever, the title of their hit album "Last Nite" as well as a hit single from that Album. With Peter's help, they were able to write and produce other songs like Kolo (their national identity), Senorita, Igbedu, etc which all made up the album “last nite”.

In July, 2005 P-Square INDEPENDENTLY released its second album GET SQUARED and the first collection of their videos in Nigeria. The album "GET SQUARED" is currently the rave in Nigeria and other parts of Africa, with over two million copies sold and at least three million viewers on MTV Base constantly requesting the track “Get Squared”, thereby enabling it to hit number one on many chat listings e.g. Top 50 MTV Base Most Requested Video, MTV Base Hot list and number one on MTV Base charts for many weeks. The track “Bizzy Body” is currently a Hit track in Nigeria and other parts of Africa.

Peter with the assistance of their brother Tony and their cousin and friend Oshevire Ovuorho choreograph all the dance sequences in the group's routines. He also plays the acoustic & bass guitars and drums. Paul plays the keyboard and does the production and sequencing of their songs till date.

P Square has delivered smashing live performances alongside artistes like Usher, Wayne Wonder, Sean Paul, Wyclef Jean etc. And they were nominated the Most Promising Group in Africa at the KORA Awards 2003
