Opinion: Goodbye, Psquare

by Michael Ace


No doubt about it- secession is the order of the day. I just don’t seem to understand why we could be so disturbed by the decision of two immature grown-ups. It hurts me to see sane people get so much concerned about matters that are of no paramount importance even at a time when loads of critical issues need attention. I am a fan of good music and the Psquare brothers have given me what I want for some number of years now but still, I don’t see a reason why I should have a sleepless night because of their misunderstandings.

Let me tell you something quite interesting. Some couples of months back, GLO brought the Psquare brothers to the city of Ibadan to perform at the Glo Mega Music Tour which took place at The Conference hall of the University Of Ibadan. I was there and it was fun watching the brothers perform with so much accordance and agreement. After the almost one-hour show, the two brothers went on their knees, begged the audience for their misdeeds and previous misunderstandings and assured their fans that there would be nothing of such ever again. I was captivated by the passion and innocence that accompanied their already strained voice that the love I had for them grew more feathers.

But also, I knew the genuineness was faked. They had to do it and they did. Since the moment these guys became family men, things have changed. They have since then been together because of pressures from fans and the fear of ruin that their career may suffer. Let them separate if they have to. Who knows, someday, Mr.P and Rudeboy (what funny names to bear after separation) may feature themselves in a track and give us beautiful duets like they are used to.

I have my internet subscription to renew, bills to pay and family to worry about and I believe you have things that often talk you off sleep too. Even the Nigeria we live is enough bother.

So what to do?

I will just sit back, treat myself to a nice meal, watch the evolution of these duo and celebrate the success of the music industry as it grows.
