All is well with Squareville these days, or at least publicly. The rancid air of disagreement and public posturing that has struck at the heart of the Psquare business and strained the bond of brotherhood seems to have gone.

The singers' had engaged in a public row over the restructuring of the business, with Peter Okoye leading the charge for change. Jude Okoye was fired in between, and Paul Okoye has shown his loyalty, even to a fault by sticking with Jude. New solo songs had been released, and the battle line was drawn.

But all of that is in the past now. The wind of peace has blown through their hearts, and publicly, the feud is over. Although the issues that brought them to the edge of disintegration still exist, the brothers can rest easy in the knowledge that peace is the first requisite for a proper conciliation to be launched.

Such is the level of peace that the brothers have returned to their group business ways. The duo has a performance in the Netherlands over the holiday. Prior to the show, there were pockets of doubts regarding the closeness of the show to their beef season. But that did not matter, as the twins put up a great performance, regaling the audience with their best hit songs.

The twins turned up at the Festival Palmundo, in Amsterdam, rendered the full range of their discography, and in the process removed their shirts and stomped the stage. Photos are everywhere to prove that the twins did get sweaty and dirty.

Concerning the future revenue sharing, the old formula is gone, and Peter came out looking good. Whenever Peter is booked individually, he is known as Mr P, and he gets his full remuneration which his new manager Olatunji Michael is responsible for. When he is booked alongside his brother as Psquare, the money splitting goes two ways. Peter and Paul will get equal shares. Jude Okoye, who is still Paul’s manager will have to make do with his agreement with Paul, which will definitely give him a stab at the good old cash.

Jude Okoye is the worst hit by the new structure. With the center of power wrested off his hands by Peter, all he has left is the loyalty of Paul. Previously, Jude had an equal share at the table, splitting the revenue from the brothers equally with himself. But he failed to adapt to a decade worth of change in the Nigeria music industry. Peter initially just wanted a revamping of the management structure. But Jude was unwilling to listen to him, hence he got kicked out, publicly. Do you know that Psquare don’t have an office after over a decade of prosperous business? The blame falls on Jude.

Peter’s revolution has brought great change to the structure, and everyone can move on now, content that they can return to the business of music. Psquare is set for new performances and recordings. The brothers have moved past their beef.
