Akinblog brings to you the 6 things we learnt from the interview
1. Jude Okoye did everything possible to bring back Psquare, but it didn’t work. He said;
“There is nothing humanly possible, that I didn’t do. I left the picture. they said I apologize to Lola Omotayo. I did. They said I must tweet something, I did. When Psquare hungry them to go do, let them do it when they are ready. I am done. I have my business.”
2. Jude spent over 100 thousand dollars on Mr MayD;
“I treated him as a brother, gave him a platform, flew him across America, put him on a show with Akon, and gave him a home in my place. We treated him as family. We spent over $100k. When I saw potential, I gave him a contract. He came after 2 2 weeks He came back after 2 weeks asking that he needed incentives: A big car, a house in Lekki, and more, just like the Square. I said no. Paul spoke to him, he said no. I told him to go.”
3. Peter and Paul are in good terms;
“Peter and Paul are not fighting. Peter is angry with me because he wanted me out of Psquare. He didn’t want me as part of the group. I have left Peter Okoye over 5 times. I have asked him “wetin I do you several times.” He says “no worry, no worry.””
4. Jude Okoye didn’t draft the contract he had with Cynthia Morgan, her manager, Joy Tongo did;
“I don’t own her name, Cynthia Morgan. I never wrote her contract, she brought it and I signed. I have spent over N40M on Cynthia Morgan. I bought her the white Range. I bought land for her mother. She played secret shows and kept the money, but her manager said no.”
5. Cynthia Morgan left him before her contract expired;
“She’s been free since 2017. She left before her contract expired. I’ll send you her contract, you can post it. How can I hold someone’s mama and papa name? She can’t blame me for her failure.”
6. Jude never stopped Cynthia Morgan from using her name;
“It’s impossible for me to take Cynthia Morgan’s name. I don’t have the rights to her name that her mama and papa gave her. Which court wan grant me that case? I have never held anyone. She left me in 2017, and that’s that.”
