'I never left Psquare… I waited two months before moving on'' Paul Okoye says

In a new interview with The Nation, Paul Okoye of the now defunct group, PSquare, says he never left the group when his twin brother, Peter, opted out and that he moved on with his solo career after waiting for two months to see if the fallout could be resolved.

In the interview, Paul said “I never left and I don’t know why people keep asking me that. It might be the fourth time it’s happening but I always wait. But this time the difference is that I did not wait. So I don’t have issues on that.”

Speaking further, Paul said the earlier days of their separation was strange to him because he had never performed alone but now he is used to it

“There was a bit of a breakdown when it happened and everyone was in shock because usually when things happen like that, I wait for almost nine months. But this time, I had to move on with my life and under two months, it became normal for me. It’s the same old thing. There’s nothing new. The only part I know is different is performing alone because at the early stage I wasn’t used to it but now, I am used to it''.

Reacting to comments made by some Nigerians that himself and Peter have become upcoming artiste since their breakup, Paul said ''Well, they know who they are referring to. Like I said, nothing changed. If you listen, it is the same thing you have been listening to almost twenty years so I cannot go and discover a new thing. We are in the internet generation so people can say whatever they want. I know people are angry but there are some things that you cannot say; that is why it is family. If somebody did not pull out what they pulled out, you won’t know about anything. That is not me, and like I said, I don’t want to say anything about it. You might be doing your job but I have to protect what I have to protect''.

Peter left the group in 2017. He accused his brothers, Paul and Jude, of consistent disregard for his creative input in Psquare. He also accused Jude of always threatening his life.

Rap mogul, Russell Simmons slammed with another rape suit

Hip-hop legend, Russell Simmons was on Friday slammed with a $10-million rape lawsuit filed by a woman in Los Angeles, the latest in a string of accusations against him ranging from harassment to rape.

The unidentified woman said in the complaint filed in the Los Angeles County Superior Court that the mogul raped her in a hotel after the two met at a concert and then went to a club. At least nine women have now come forward with misconduct allegations against the 60-year-old Simmons.

In January, aspiring filmmaker Jennifer Jarosik sued him for alleged rape, seeking $5 million as she called for a reckoning in the hip-hop industry on the mistreatment of women. In light of the most recent suit, Simmons released a statement saying “I vehemently deny all the allegations made against me. They have shocked me to my core as I have never been abusive or violent in any way in my relations with women,” he said in the statement, noting that he had submitted to and passed several lie detector tests concerning such allegations.

In the latest complaint, the woman said Simmons lured her into his hotel room, threatened her, and then “threw her on the bed and raped her.” She said she first met the rap impresario at a concert she had attended with her son, and that Simmons had invited her to an after-party. Filmmaker Jarosik alleged in her suit that Simmons who stepped down from all of his business roles after the first allegations against him surfaced propositioned her for sex. When she said no, he allegedly hit and raped her.

Simmons was an enormously influential figure in popularizing hip-hop, co-founding the Def Jam label that brought rap acts such as the Beastie Boys, LL Cool J and Public Enemy to a broad US audience.

The recent spate of allegations against him surfaced as the #MeToo movement gained steam, with scores of women speaking out over harassment, assault and rape in the wake of disgraced film tycoon Harvey Weinstein’s downfall
