‘You are a son of darkness’ – APC replies P-Square, calls for their arrest

Following the call-out posts the P-Square brothers and their elder brother Jude Okoye made after the Nigerian Government disclosed plans to stop movie and music video production abroad, the All Progressives Congress(APC) youth renaissance group has fired a stinker at Peter Okoye of P-square for insulting the Federal government’s plan to ban video shooting abroad.

In a statement signed by the group’s national secretary, Mr Collins Edwin, the APC described Okoye as a ‘son of darkness’.

Here’s the statement;

“We read the scurrilous remarks credited to Mr Peter Okoye of the Psquare group against the Federal Government’s job-saving policy in the entertainment industry with great anger and vexation.

Least of all persons to make scathing remark against the government is the Psquare group which the local content policy of the Federal Government dusted-up from the valley of obscurity.

Where was Peter Okoye or Psquare brand in 1999 when foreign music dominated our airwaves? If not for the government policy which mandated all broadcast stations in Nigeria to pay attention to Nigerian music by playing 95 percent of Nigerian songs every day, would Peter Okoye or Psquare be known to anybody in Nigeria today? Or would they have competed with better American music which dominated our airwaves then?
After the government have used its policy to brush them up from nothing to something; instead of giving opportunity to other people, they are taking Nigerian jobs to foreign countries through the shooting of music videos abroad.

Now that government have intervened to raise great and better entertainers again, Peter Okoye has the gut to insult the entire Federal Government by calling our great leaders ‘Ndi Ala’ which means mad and stupid people. How dare you say that Psquare?
We, therefore, urge the security agencies in the country to arrest Mr Peter Okoye for disrespecting our government and bringing it to a disrepute. If you cannot produce in Nigeria and hire Nigerians, then leave the industry.We must export Nigerian culture to the outside world through our music and videos.”

  • So P Square and so many musicians who made it in Nigeria did so because Nigeria insisted our local stations play their music more than foreign ones? So the new technology in entertainment that these boys went outside our shores to explore did contribute. How many music making equipments do we produce locally? Are those that are employed locally in that industry also trained locally?
    What if those countries that we ban our musicians from going to decide to put an embargo on shipping equipment to and training people from Nigeria?
    Someone should tell these guys that people have a right to their choices.
    Just like the President and other members of the government prefer to go outside the country for their medicare.
    They should start by bringing our President back to National hospital Abuja,or LUTH for treatment. Then we can take then serious on their local content policy. They need to first ban government officials from taking their children abroad to acquire education. They need to stop them from opening bank accounts and saving their money in foreign banks. They need to stop them from acquiring property in Dubai and other parts of the world. No more summer holidays overseas while we have places like Obudu ranch and Tinapa. The list is long.
    We’re the ones tolerating these Oafs. Smh!
