Revealed: P-Square losing N8m per show from Glo Mega Music tour


Failure to play in the ongoing Glo Mega Music nationwide tour is costing Peter and Paul Okoye of P-Square N8million per show, has learned.

The twin brothers have cancelled all group engagements following the renewal of their age-long sibling rivalry.

With Paul telling a fan last week that their tour of US and Canada was no longer taking place, the brothers have been promoting their solo performances on social media.

Things reached a head on Sunday when Peter wrote to the law firm of Festus Keyamo that he was no longer interested in being a member of P-Square, followed by a video showing the brothers fighting in their lawyer’s office.

Among shows the brothers were expected to perform at before their breakup is the Glo Mega Music tour which kicked off in Akwa, Anambra State on April 15.

Speaking with on Tuesday, a top-ranking official of Globacom said the company does not expect the brothers to continue on the tour going by the bitter war they are currently fighting.

“We are aware that they have cancelled other shows for which they had been contracted to perform, so we do not expect them to be part of the remaining Glo Mega Music tour,” the official who spoke on the condition of anonymity said.

He added that while the brothers have been scheduled to perform at some cities before the tour ends, no legal action will be taken against them.

“We do not intend to take the matter up with them. They are paid per show and will not collect any money if they do not show up,” he said.

Asked how much the brothers are paid per show, the source replied that it is N8million.

Expressing regret over the breakup of the musical siblings, the Globacom official said the company has invested so much in its relationship with the duo who were ambassadors for the company until 2016.

“Even when it was obvious that all was not well with the group, we held on to them as brand ambassadors. We even sponsored Dance with Peter contest.”
