Nigerian singer Peter Okoye aka Mr P has revealed that he is currently making more money as a solo singer.
Peter Okoye is a former member of the defunct P-Square duo. Following the split from his twin brother, Paul, he now performs by his solo name – Mr. P. His brother, Paul, now also performs solo as Rudeboy.
During a recent interview with HipTV, Peter Okoye revealed that he is making more money as a solo artiste compared to when he was part of the P-Square group.
The 39-year-old singer said:
“Hundred percent, I am. I don’t have to share three ways. Call it greed or selfishness. It’s your own cup of tea. I share with nobody. Yes, my management and my team. Fine. But I’m doing my own thing. I’m freer. I’m making more money. Freedom is key.
“I can get a call that there’s a show next week and it’s my daughter’s birthday. I can say, ‘cancel it’. As a group, I couldn’t do that. Moneywise, if I used to share three ways, I share alone. What am I doing music for? It’s about doing it how I feel it. It’s not even about the money. But when it comes to that, I make more than I was while in the group”
