P-Square’s Mum Is Dead

Mrs Okoye Nigerian R&B duo, P-Square (Peter and Paul Okoye) have lost their mother, Mrs Josephine Okoye.

She died about five hours after a heart surgery in Apollo Hospital in India at about 11pm (3am Indian time) yesterday. She was in her 60s.

She was reportedly flown to India few months ago after being first admitted at St Nicholas Hospital, Yaba, Lagos.

Mrs. Okoye, who is popularly known as a major pillar and source of inspiration to the singing twin brothers (P-Square), had been in and out of the hospital for about four months before she eventually died.

She is survived by her Jos-based husband, children; Ifeanyi, Henry, Jude, Lilian, Tony, Peter, Paul and Mary. She also had grand-children, one of whom is Cameron, the son of Peter.

A condolence register has been opened in her honour at P-Square’s Omole Phase 1 residence. Friends and colleagues of the multiple award-winning singers have been visiting the house to commiserate with the Okoye family.

Mrs Okoye was a good pillar to P-Square while she was alive. Her last public appearance at her children’s performance was at the Psquare Invasion concert in August 2011.

She was a Christian minister before her death. She was in support of her sons’ career and was also a huge pillar to their success.
