OUR PRAYER WARRIOR IS GONE —P-Square
One of the singing duo of the group P-
Square, Paul Okoye, has described the
death of their mother, Mrs. Josephine
Okoye, in India on Wednesday as the
exit of their spiritual warrior.
Peter, said, “My mother will be greatly
missed, not just because she was our
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 studies in school,” he said.
Mrs. Okoye was said to have died in
India exactly five hours after
undergoing a heart surgery.
According to the singers’ publicist, Bayo
Adetu, she was first admitted to St.
Nicholas Hospital, Lagos, but when her
condition did not improve, she was
transferred to Kolkata, India, where she
Adetu said, “Mrs. Okoye, who was
popularly known as a major pillar and
source of inspiration to the singing twin
brothers (Peter and Paul), had been in
and out of the hospital for about four
months before she died.”
Since the news broke in the early hours
of Thursday, many celebrities and fans
have been sympathising with the stars
on Twitter and Facebook.
May her soul rest in peace. Amen!
