Following the official split of the renowned musical group PSquare, the duo’s lawyer, Festus Keyamo, has clarified that the singers’ wives are in no way involved in the circumstances that led to the split.
Keyamo who is also a Senior Advocate of Nigeria said confidently that the conflict among the duo as well as their elder brother, Jude would be settled.
As against popular assertions, Keyamo released a statement on Tuesday, saying the rift neither the wives nor any of the aggrieved entertainers is at fault.
In the statement titled “The public feud by the PSquare brothers”, the SAN enjoined members of the public to desist “from jumping into uninformed conclusions about this feud.”
Keyamo stated that although none of the circulating documents sent by Peter Okoye was released to the public domain, his chambers expressed displeasure at the turn of events.
The statement read in part, “As their close friends and lawyers over many years, we have done our very best to manage their differences over time and very prominent personalities have been invited in the past to intervene.
“Our attention has been drawn to the on-going feud between the Psquare brothers in online, print and electronic media. We have also been inundated with calls from the media to authenticate the correspondence Peter Okoye sent to our office, indicating his intention to terminate the contract between the brothers for various reasons and the online video showing a purported scuffle between the brothers in our chambers.
“We are well aware that we have a duty to keep the details of their disagreements confidential, so we shall say nothing here on the issues at stake. But since the disagreement is now in the public domain, and our name has been dragged into the fray, we wish to appeal to members of the public to refrain from jumping into uninformed conclusions about this feud.
“None of these talented brothers is at fault. None of them is also wholly justified and correct in their individual positions. We also wish to state categorically that, contrary to widely held opinions, none of their wives is at fault. In fact, the wives have kept their respectable and dignified distances from all the issues involved. They have never interfered in any way.
“We also want to state that while all the three brothers may have genuine grievances, nobody’s life is at risk. All the various incidents that happened in our chambers (some as late at 12 midnight and 2am and one of which was captured in the online video) arose out of various meetings that were genuine attempts at resolving their differences.”
