Speaking about the incident, Peter, said:
“Our mother will be greatly missed, not just because she was their mother, but because she played a vital role in the success story of P-Square.
“You know that she was a prayer warrior, so I don’t need to tell you how she stood by us spiritually. Besides, she was the only one that believed in us when we decided to make a career out of music.
“I can remember that she used to sneak us out at night then to attend shows without the consent of our father who insisted that we must quit music to face our education,” Peter said.
The deceased was a devoted Christian and church minister in Jos, Plateau State, Nigeria.
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.
