Some P-Square and music fans are conflicted on the performance of one-half of the duo at events or concerts after the group broke up.
This comes after Paul Okoye, popularly known as King Rudy, shared a video of himself performing at a wedding ceremony in Equatorial Guinea.
In one of the videos, the artiste was seen performing a P-Square classic ‘No One Like You’.

Some say that the song is the intellectual property of both brothers under the name P-Square, as such, King Rudy cannot perform those old songs without his brother.
Another school of thought is of the view that because the duo owns the song either of them should be able to perform it.
One Twitter user wrote, “In the US when groups break up, there’s ALWAYS a clause in the documents that forbids any member of the erstwhile group from INDIVIDUALLY PROFITING from ANY WORK DONE BY THE GROUP! His brother should sue him for this!”

But Peter wasn’t part of the song . He didn’t sing in it. If u watch the official video of the song peter was just a video vixen . Song written produced & performed by Paul okoye— Gen O. (@_officialgenO) December 13, 2020
Lol Rude boy is actually the songwriter for Psquare while Peter was the dancer.— Timmy_Blaize (@TimmyBlaize2) December 13, 2020
this guy is still signed to the record label, so he has every right to perform the song he wrote regardless, ya look for problems where there’s none.— ivy june (@ivyjune09) December 13, 2020
In your mind… You just made sense… Please check youtube and see the bro Mr. P singing psquare songs… In a single tour concert…. Songs written by Rudeboy— DonMeke (@YahnathanM) December 13, 2020

Get your lawyer to know who wrote the song before you open your mouth to talk about suing someone jare— Lara 👸 (@lara______o) December 13, 2020
1. This shows that RudeBoy have not moved on from Psquare.— SojiVibe Media (@SojiVibeMedia) December 14, 2020
2. This Shows that RudeBoy doesn’t have a good song suitable for an occasion like this.
3. This shows that RudeBoy is rude.
😭😭😭 PSquare was the best 🔥! They seriously need to sort this drama out and give us a fire album https://t.co/DvfiTsilrb— Thandi Welch (@ThandiWelch) December 14, 2020
Uhm shouldn’t this be illegal? I mean the song “no one” is owned PSQUARE the group. So a single person should not be able to perform and gain from it this way. This feels wrong.— Timilehin ➐ (@timiparfect) December 14, 2020
But I might be wrong and this is normal but it just feels off. Anyways it’s not my business https://t.co/nFOlX6XY9G
Bro you’re caping nonsense seriously , the song was released under P’Square. Just give me one good reason why Kizz Daniel was denied performance to songs he released under G-WorldWide ???— #NSNS (@BurnaBankx) December 14, 2020
Lol. Peter came to Oakland sometime last year and all he did was Psquare songs. 😂🤣— ejiro (@emerhoejiro) December 13, 2020
It’s so weird that it’s only one of them performing this song. I miss Psquare together 🥺 https://t.co/c6rUxVNdqd— B L E S S I N G ✨🌻 (@WuraOla_Bless) December 13, 2020
Madam say what you know don’t just tweet to get noticed, Peter never wanted to sue Paul, rather a show promoter who used Psquare’s picture instead of Paul’s picture to promote his show. And incase if you don’t know Peter has been the one performing Psquare songs more than Paul— Mikky Miracle (@stainlessmikky) December 13, 2020
I don’t know why they can’t put differences aside and perform P Square songs as P Square. Perhaps someday they’ll pull that Davido Wizkid stuff.— Peas🗿 (@Te_kena) December 13, 2020
