They are some things no one should have to defend.
Iconic pop acts, P Square have come out to address the nasty rumours surrounding their mother’s death.
Even though Josephine Okoye died in India after s heart surgery early July, some people think that the duo sacrificed their mum for more fame and money.
In an interview, P-Square reacted to these nasty rumours:
“We feel so bad to know that our mum is no more. But who are we to question the Almighty God. Traditionally, we are supposed to bury her and not the other way round. It is just that it happened so soon. Indeed, her death was a big blow to us.
“Then, it is too bad to hear that people are accusing us of being responsible for our mum’s death. We are not blaming anybody. People are free to say what they want to say. We begin to wonder whether there is anything that will ever make us to go for the life of our beloved mother.
“Her life cannot be quantified in terms of money or fame. So, our answer to this question is that we have no hand in our mum’s death. We only blame the death that snatched her away from us if not so, people won’t be pointing accusing fingers at us. She died after a brief illness.”
The deceased, who was a devoted Christian and church minister in Jos, Plateau State, died after a protracted battle with an undisclosed heart illness.
