Just when we thought the whole story of the P-Square breakup had finally been lid to rest, according to Icon Weekly a man named Bayo Adetu identified as P-Sqaure’s publicist had more to say about the whole drama. In an interview with the online magazine, Bayo stated that the whole fight was just a publicity stunt played by the brothers to fool Nigerian bloggers: I’m telling you this as a friend, there was no fight at all Bayo said. He also blamed Nigerian bloggers especially Linda Ikeji for carrying out false information:
“These days, immediately Linda posts anything on her blog, journalists just go there and copy and paste the story without any checks and balances, it is outrightly wrong, I’m really upset about this.” Bayo added.
We do not want to believe this is the real publicist for the pop duo because if he truly is then he is doing the P-Square brand more harm than good. Read the full interview by Icon Weekly below:
Greetings, Bayo, we heard that the Okoye brotherS have finally reconciled, can you give us an insight on what really happened?
After a long laugh… My brother, I’m telling you this as a friend, there was no fight at all. The whole thing started after Jude tweeted some days back and bloggers feasted on it and gave it several interpretations which never existed, and that was how we got here.
Are you saying there wasn’t a fight at all, how then did Peter and Paul keep releasing comments through their Facebook accounts?
My guy, I can authoritatively tell you that neither of the P-Square brothers, nor even Jude operate their Facebook accounts anymore. Whatever Facebook posted was from an impersonator, pretending to be anyone of them. P-Sqaure is active on twitter, not on facebook, so you see, the whole thing was founded on lies.
If what you are saying is true, why did they all tweet a reconciliatory tweet this morning indicating that they have mended fences?
There’s one thing you should know, P-Square are not politicians, neither are they businessmen to be worried about what one useless blogger or the other has to say about them.
In this game, bad publicity is good publicity. When we read those funny posts, we decided to play along with the general public and what they were meant to believe.
Yesterday, Thursday, April 24, 2014 was Jude Okoye’s birthday and he also used the opportunity to propose to his girlfriend while we laughed at the stupidity of some Nigerian bloggers.
We later decided to further play into their hands by reaching a consensus to tweet what they have termed the ‘reconciliation tweet’.
However as a journalist, I am pained that trained journalists allow themselves to be remoted by Linda Ikeji, a mere blogger without any professional training to stall them from investigating serious news material like this. These days, immediately Linda posts anything on her blog, journalists just go there and copy and paste the story without any checks and balances, it is outrightly wrong, I’m really upset about this.
She called me after posting the story and I just decided to ignore her calls, because I didn’t think we had anything more to say when the milk has been split.
I have taken my time to explain to you this way because, you are a friend and did not join the bandwagon.
As for those bloggers out there, I allowed them to write whatever they like; after all, they are consuming their Internet data, not mine.
Bayo’s story just doesn’t add up or what do you think?
