I Never Left Psquare, I Waited For Two Months Before Moving On – Paul Okoye

Featured Image

In a new interview with The Nation, Paul Okoye of the now defunct music group, ‘PSquare’ has revealed that he never left the group when his twin brother, Peter, opted out.

According to him, he moved on with his solo career after waiting for two months to see if their difference could be resolved.

In his words:

“I never left and I don’t know why people keep asking me that.

“It might be the fourth time it’s happening but I always wait. But this time the difference is that I did not wait.

“So I don’t have issues on that.”

Paul also said the earlier days of their separation was strange to him because he had to perform alone. The singer said he has never performed alone but now he is used to it.

“There was a bit of a breakdown when it happened and everyone was in shock because usually when things happen like that, I wait for almost nine months.

“But this time, I had to move on with my life and under two months, it became normal for me. It’s the same old thing.

“There’s nothing new. The only part I know is different is performing alone because at the early stage I wasn’t used to it but now, I am used to it”.

On comments made by some fans that himself and Peter have become upcoming artiste since they went solo, Paul said ;

“Well, they know who they are referring to. Like I said, nothing changed. If you listen, it is the same thing you have been listening to almost twenty years so I cannot go and discover a new thing.

“We are in the internet generation so people can say whatever they want.

“I know people are angry but there are some things that you cannot say; that is why it is family.

“If somebody did not pull out what they pulled out, you won’t know about anything. That is not me, and like I said, I don’t want to say anything about it.

“You might be doing your job but I have to protect what I have to protect”.

Supremacy Battle: “Davido Bought Fame, Wizkid Earned It,” Says Marenike

Featured Image

At a time when the supremacy battle between two Nigerian music heavyweights – Wizkid and Davido – seems to have calmed a bit, there seems to be an opinion that might ignite sensation among die-hard loyalists of the two popular singers.

UK-based afro-merge singer, Morenike Lasode, with the stage name Marenikae, may be trying ‘inadvertently’ to stir up a hornet’s nest after she shared her opinion on her preferred act out of the two.

Preferring Wizkid over Davido, Vanguard quoted her as saying that in her opinion, Wizkid earned his pedigree as a musician of repute through difficult circumstances while Davido bought stardom with wealth.

“Wizkid is an all-rounder because of his vibes; thanks to his learning and struggling years. Struggle in the industry teaches you how to be a better artiste, it teaches you how to navigate in the business, how to improve, how to grow, it makes you more perceptive, more aware of what the market needs and I think this struggle shaped Wizkid’s career and drive”, she argued.

She added, “Davido on the other hand grew in better circumstances and his career also snowballed in better circumstances but he’s also good. There are some Davido’s songs I love more than Wizkid’s but if I have to pick one person, looking at Wizkid’s artistry, image, performance and history, I’ll pick Wizkid. As far as image is concerned, Wizkid is very sophisticated.”

Adeboye Asks God To Visit Boko Haram Camp And Set Dapchi Christian Girl Free

Featured Image

The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has prayed to God to ensure the safe return of Leah Sharibu, the only Dapchi schoolgirl in Boko Haram captivity.

Sharibu was among the girls abducted on February 19 but the terror group refused to release her with other abductees on Wednesday because she would not renounce Jesus Christ and her religion.

But in a tweet on Friday, the cleric asked God to visit Boko Haram camp and set Sharibu free.

“Lord, we ask that you visit the camp of the captors and in a way that You alone can, see to the safe release and return of the missing girl Leah Sharibu in Jesus name,” he tweeted.

“But thus saith the LORD, Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered: for I will contend with him that contendeth with thee, and I will save thy children.”

Her father, Nata Sharibu, had on Wednesday said that parents whose daughters were released by the militants told him that his daughter refused to renounce Christianity and that was the reason she is still being held.

Speaking on RayPower FM shortly after the students were released, the girl’s father expressed delight over her stance but prayed for her return.

“All of them were released. They said some were dead there and my daughter is alive but they cannot release her because she is a Christian,” he had said.

“They gave her the option of converting in order to be released but she said she will never become a Muslim… I am very sad but I am also jubilating too because my daughter did not denounce Christ.”]

Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari has vowed that his administration would not relent in efforts to bring Leah Sharibu safely back home to her parents as it has done for the other girls.

England Controlled The Game Vs Netherlands- Gareth Southgate

Featured Image

England head coach Gareth Southgate has heaped praise on his players following their 1-0 victory over the Netherlands.

Jesse Lingard scored the only goal of the night as England emerged victorious at the Amsterdam ArenA, and their coach said that he was pleased with the way they controlled the match.

“It was a good test for us, we came away from home and controlled the game. We used the ball really well for 60-65 minutes, maybe more quality in final third was required but we were very solid. We had some good play up to that final ball,” he told ITV.

“The back three were excellent and the goalkeeper too, the way they were able to play from the back, they played with real composure, and played with intelligence too.

“Playing three at the back is partly system and partly personal, the defenders and goalkeeper are all capable of using the ball really well and we worked out the game tactically to keep the ball higher up. But there are more things we went to see in the Italy game and work on.”

Super Eagles Coach Gernot Rohr has urged his team to remain humble despite defeating Argetina and Poland in international friendlies

Gernot Rohr has warned that the team are not World Cup favourites despite their 1-0 victory over Poland in Friday’s international friendly at the Municipal Stadium, Wroclaw

Victor Moses’ 61st-minute penalty was enough for the three-time African champions extended their unbeaten run to six.

Rohr charged his ‘young team’ to stay humble and continue the momentum ahead of the global showpiece.

“We were lucky to have won this game against a very solid Polish side,” Rohr after the game.

“They created some big opportunities to score and were dangerous from set pieces that we found difficult to cope with but I praise my team for their victory.

This team is a young team but also a team of leaders. If we stay humble and continue to work hard to improve our play we have huge potentials, but beating 2 FIFA top 10 teams in friendlies doesn’t mean we are now World Cup favourites.”

Nigeria will continue their preparation with another friendly match against Serbia on Tuesday at the Hive Stadium, London.

The winning goal Vs Poland came as a result of Moses goal from the penalty spot in the 61st minute at Wrocław.

”For sure it was a penalty when I was fouled, the referee made the right decision. It was a good win for us,” Victor Moses said at the mixed zone.

”Poland has many good players. They attacked especially well after conceding the goal, but we showed more character today.

”We wanted to enjoy the game and simply win. We believe that during the World Cup, we will manage to go as far as possible.”

Santos: Ronaldo Is A Goal

Featured Image

Portugal head coach, Fernando Santos has described Ronaldo as a goal, after his heroics against Egypt and also hailed his team’s determination.

Salah opened the scoring in the second half. However, Ronaldo stamped his dominance, with a brace in injury time.

The Madrid man now has 81 international goals, just behind Ali Daei (109 for Iran) and Ferenc Puskas (84 for Spain and Hungary) in the all time goals scored for national teams.

Santos was unsurprised by the Real Madrid star’s contribution, telling RTP : “Ronaldo is this. Ronaldo is a goal. He’s a goal.”

As for his side’s performance, Santos was dissatisfied, although he lauded their attitude.

“We were better in the first half, but with some less correct nuances in the offensive aspect,” he said.

“We could not create great opportunities, but by our way of playing we could have scored goals.

“I tried to rectify it in the second half, but things did not go well. The game was more broken and we conceded a goal in which we appeared to lack defensive aggressiveness.

“The substitutions made after the goal caused difficulty. The team was broken.

“Thanks to the players, the team went up and happiness comes to those who are looking for it, thanks to the determination of a team that never allows to lose, always wins.”
