Paul & Peter Okoye
PAUL & PETER OKOYE popularly known as P-Square are a set of twins originating from Nigeria. Both guys sing and dance tremendously well.
P-Square's debut album LAST NITE was launched in 2003 which made remarkable sales thereby making P-Square a household name in Nigeria.
In July 2005, P-Square INDEPENDENTLY released its second album titled GET SQUARED and the first collection of their videos in Nigeria. The album "GET SQUARED" took rave in Nigeria and other parts of Africa, with over ten million copies sold, 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. Also, the track “Bizzy Body 2” featuring Weird MC in 2006 was a hit track in Nigeria and all over Africa.
Furthermore, in November 2007 P-Square released its third album titled "GAME OVER" which is currently making waves in Nigeria and all of Africa. The song "DO ME" whose awesome video was put together by JUDE ENGESS OKOYE who happens to be the official Artiste Manager of P-Square, directed the "DO ME" video which is currently being played in all T.V. stations in Nigeria as well as MTV Base.
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.
