A veteran Nigerian singer, Peter Okoye, popularly called Mr P, has said that he had nothing when he met Lola Omotayo-Okoye, his wife.
“I had nothing when I met my wife and I was a gold digger”, he disclosed.
The former member of P-Square, a no longer musician, disclosed his relationship during a Live Instagram video recently, in which a clip has gone viral and now talk of the town.
Mr P hereby urged men to always pick the woman they love and make her into what they want. He said he wasn’t any better in looks when they both met 18 years ago but she now makes him look younger every day.
“I met my wife 18 years ago. Me? I was the gold digger. When I met her, I f**king had nothing. Men, I’m telling you. Not every woman is a harlot, whore or slay mama,” Okoye said.
“Bro, if you have money. Pick one, push her up and make her the way you want her to be. My wife was never perfect, don’t get me wrong.
“But, have you seen me before, I was damn ugly. Look at me now, I look younger every day. You’ll have peace of mind if you follow your min”, he stated.
According to sources, in 2016, Mr P initiated a split from P-square after he and Paul Okoye, his twin brother, engaged each other in heated arguments both in public and on social media platforms.
The duo disagreed as regards what peter perceived as a lopsidedness in individual input of songs getting featured on their collaborated albums as Paul does has a bigger share of his songs selected.
He was said to have relocated from the home they both accommodated their extended family, thereafter which an advocate was involved to help split their affluence and collaborated ventures over the years.
In 2013, Peter married Lola, his longtime girlfriend, whom he was said to have dated for close to a decade as presently now, they have two kids to show for the relationship.
To flashback that P-Square were a Nigerian duo of identical twin brothers, Peter Okoye and Paul Okoye. They produced and released their albums through Square Records.
In December 2011, they signed a record deal with Akon’s Konvict Muzik label. In May 2012, they signed a record distribution deal with Universal Music’s South African branch.
On 25 September 2017, numerous media outlets reported that the group disbanded.
