P-Square is the stage name adopted by the Nigerian R&B duo and identical twin brothers Peter Okoye and Paul Okoye . P-Square both attended St. Mulumba’s Secondary school Jos, Nigeria.
While in the secondary School, P-Square became part of their school’s music and drama team. During the time in question, P-Square Idolized Micheal Jackson who they mimicked and learned his dance step over years.
Eventually, P-Square formed a group with some other individuals, and adopted “Smooth Criminals” as the name for the group in the year 1997. P-Square’s great talent made them very popular in the Jos Metropolis in those days.
As years went by, P-Square registered at a music school in order to develop their music talent more. Their effort showed-off when they were employed to produce sound track for some home videos including Bitterness, Evas River, Mama Sunday and Moment of Bitterness.
After their secondary school, P-Square both got admission in University of Abuja to study Business administration. The other members of “Smooth Criminals” also got admission into various other universities leading to P-Square forming their own group whose names metamorphosed from “Double P”, to P&P, “Da Pees”, and finally “P-Square”. P-Square have over time been managed by several producers.
The group has been largely successful over the years, wowing fans with their dance moves and hit songs.
In recent times, the group has been faced with in-house controversies and has been threatening to break up. This is due to the rift between the twins and their manager/elder brother, Jude Okoye over contract issues.
