Paul Okoye, a Nigerian singer better known as Rudeboy, has come under criticism for performing ‘No One Like You’ at a presidential wedding he graced in Equatorial Guinea.
The 39-year-old singer had taken to his Twitter page on Sunday to share a video of himself performing the song, which was recorded by Psquare, the now-defunct music group he shared with Peter Okoye, his twin brother, at the wedding ceremony.

Shortly after he shared the video, fans took to the comment section to wonder why the singer will perform a song that belonged to a group he was no longer part of.
While a segment of users registered their annoyance, saying he wasn’t supposed to perform the song alone, others supported him with the assertion that they both have equal rights to the song — since they created it together.
“Why are you performing Psquares song alone? This is betrayal though if you don’t know,” a Twitter user wrote.
“They both have equal right to songs of defunct psquare. Can’t you guys just get sense and move on already,” said another user.
The development comes a few days after Peter, better known as Mr P, had slammed critics who constantly asked him to reconcile with Paul and “bring back” Psquare.
Here are some of their reactions below:

I’m just angry they separated in the first place. Stop singing your old songs to remind me of psquare that is dead😭

This is one of the reasons they separated, Paul(RudeBoy) and his other brother have always been rude and disrespectful to Peter. This alone is the summary.

This is very wrong @rudeboypsquare . You two recorded and sang the song together and if after break up , Music contract I know would say that no 1 amongst u should perform the song alone . Irrespective of what is happening, I believe agreement should be respected

You guys should just put an end to this rubbish and come back together as Blood(Psquare)
