Shortly after putting up the videos on his page, fans flooded the comment section demanding why he went on to perform a song that belonged to a group he was no longer a part of.
Some fans submitted that the song doesn’t belong to him alone as it was also owned by his twin brother, Peter Okoye.
One Twitter user wrote: “In the US when groups break up, there’s ALWAYS a clause in the documents that forbids any member of the erstwhile group from INDIVIDUALLY PROFITING from ANY WORK DONE BY THE GROUP! His brother should sue him for this!”
Another Twitter user said: “This is very heartbreaking, how could one person be performing a song by a duo!!”
@kashamyahannag was of the opinion that both Paul and Peter have rights to perform old Psquare songs.
See tweet below:
@flawless_juliet also said the brothers have equal rights to perform their old songs.
As Nigerians find it offensive for Paul to perform a square track alone, TheinfoNG recalls Peter Okoye revealed that anyone of them could perform tracks released by the defunct group independently.
P-Square still performs as a group and independently. Peter revealed in an interview with premium times, He said: “Guess what? I’ll still perform P-Square songs, nobody can stop me, nobody can stop Paul too, we didn’t have a contract with Jude, so I have the right to perform P-Square songs especially the ones I took part in.”
