Jude Okoye, Paul & Peter Okoye of Psquare’s elder brother who also doubled as their manager, confirmed in a tweet recently that he no longer manages the pop duo.
You’ll recall that Peter, some weeks back, had accused Jude of refusing to step down from his role as their manager which led to social media fallout between the brothers.
Jude’s tweet signifies the end of his 10 year managerial relationship with his brothers.
Read his tweet below:
Please i stopped being Psquares management for over a month now (for the 4th time). Let me be at PEACE. Thank you

Meanwhile, Howie T who used to manage the duo before Jude stepped in revealed that Peter accused Jude of being the main culprit behind their problems.
“When I saw Peter’s Tweets, I called him and even went to see him to talk to him about it. He said Jude is the problem that he doesn’t have any issue with Paul.” He told me that in a normal setting, a manager is supposed to be their employee and not the other way round, but Jude always uses his influence as their elder brother to boss over them. He also said managers collect between 15 – 25 % of an artiste’s income but in their case they share everything equally and he’s not happy with that sharing formula. Peter is a composer, dancer and singer, when they sit down to vote on songs that’ll make their album, Paul and Jude vote for more of Paul’s songs than Peter’s and these are the things that pisses him off’. It has gone beyond just beef now, there’s a lot of ego at play.”
