Peter, who is the most outspoken of the Okoye brothers, had inferred that their older brother and ex-manager, Jude, was behind the irreconcilable spat between himself and his twin brother.
He also explained that the whole drama began after Paul began posting the lyrics of most of their songs on Instagram and claimed to be the writer. He also accused Paul of being weak and not standing up to their older brother.
Aftermath of reconciliation
Their newly found bromance did not stop at the mere following of each other on Instagram, Peter also took Paul’s children on a shopping spree in Texas, U.S., where they currently live, ahead of Christmas.
