Peter and Paul Okoye, the Psquare brothers, have reflected on the impact of reuniting on their spending habits.
The music group parted ways in 2017 after a disagreement on the role of Jude Okoye, their older brother, as manager.
Peter had earlier blamed fans for pitting them against each other with constant comparison.
On his part, Paul, however, said family-related issues — not music — led to Psquare’s breakup in 2017.
Speaking in a recent chat with Larry Madowo on CNN’s African Voices Changemakers, the twin brothers said they now invest more in their businesses — rather than spend extravagantly on luxury items.
“What happened is this, if you know anything that happens in a group, it’s the same thing. (Even though we are brothers) it doesn’t change the fact that we are humans. And irrespective of how people wanna look at it, the fans were disappointed, but we are humans. It’s normal,” they said.
“We didn’t decide (to come back together) God made it happen. It became normal. We always going to look for that wind of change.
“Sometimes when things happen, always take the positive part of it and drop the negative parts. Why I said so is that I become more industrious.”
Peter added that he “learnt a lot from the solo thing I started doing a lot. I own a lot of company. In the next year or two, I wanna own the biggest casino in Africa. All of us are into real estate.”
On his part, Paul said as a solo artiste, he spent most of his money on pieces of jewelry.
“Now that we are back together, as more money is coming in I know where I am putting it. But then it was just wristwatches, chains. But now it is different,” Paul added.
