Nigerian pop duo, P-Square arrived UK on Wednesday, 22 August, 2012 for the concert organized by Coko Bar. As is with shows of that magnitude, they had a tour of major radio and television stations including the BBC. That is not all.
Peter and Paul Okoye, popularly known as P-Square, set the United Kingdom on fire literally, as their fans trooped out in their numbers to watch them perform at this year’s Afro Beats Festival held at HMV Apollo on Sunday, 26 August, 2012.
The platinum selling, award winning twin brothers stormed the concert venue with their 14-man band and performed on stage for two hours, dishing out songs from their repertoire of music collections which left their fans at the capacity-filled venue, yearning for more. Nollywood actor, Mike Ezuronye also joined them on stage.
Nigerian born, Togolese and Tottenham striker, Emmanuel Adebayor, described P-Square as the best music export from Nigeria and Africa as a whole, claiming that their stage presence and coordination is second to none.
The highlight of the lively performance was when P-Square performed their new single “Alingo” to the delight of their fans. Even though the song was released some few weeks ago, it had already gained acceptance with the UK crowd as they sang along. Shortly after, P-Square dedicated one of their hit songs, Beautiful Onyinye, to their late mother, Mrs. Josephine Okoye.
