Reports had emerged over the past days, revealing the burning tension in the powerful Okoye family. A separation of the family has also been mooted, and fingers are pointing in all directions, with a huge part of the blame, publicly blamed on Peter Okoye’s wife – Lola Omotayo – who has received a huge amount of bashing from the Nigerian media.
Tonto, (who is a close friend of the Okoye family), said the much-maligned women will be instrumental to mending the fences. She took to her Facebook page to share her plea for the Okoye family to refrain from splitting.
“Please learn. Two heads are better than one. Mrs. Lola and Anita, they say a woman makes a home. This is the time to show the world that both of you are women with great substance, which I believe you are.
“When you break up, your whole identity is shattered. It is like death. The love of twins is undisputed, Paul and Peter. You have been together for years, making great songs like Senorita, Do me, Story, More than a friend, Omoge mi, Busy body, Alingo, Personally, Testimony; the list is endless! Why break it up now?
It would be recalled that some of the reasons Peter Okoye wants out of the P-Square group; amidst claims of professional discontent, are reports of his family’s disrespect for his wife, Lola.
The described deadlock prompted his packing out of Squareville mansion in Omole, where he lived with his brothers for years to Lekki Phase 1 with his wife Lola Omotayo and their children.
Paul and Peter Okoye are married with kids to Anita Isama, and Lola Omotayo, respectively.
