He has profited from his esteemed pop career. At just 38 years of age, Mr. P is as of now one of the top 10 richest musicians in Nigeria music industry with no signs of stopping.
Fans of Psquare were sent into a social media frenzy when the news of the separation of one of Africa’s famous artists Psquare was made public.
This not only affected Mr P’s worth but also his other half.
For a long time, Psquare entertained their fans with top-charting dance-capable songs. However, because of some beyond-reconciliation differences, the twins chose to go solo.
In this article, we shall investigate Mr P net worth at this point in time.
P-Square (Peter and Paul Okoye) started in St. Murumba secondary school, a small Catholic school in Jos, Plateau State Nigeria.
They both joined their school music and drama club where they started singing, dancing, and emulating songs by MC Hammer, Bobby Brown, and Michael Jackson.
They later framed a cappella quartet called “MMMPP” (M Clef a.k.a. Itemoh, Michael, Melvin, Peter, and Paul).
Drawing inspiration from their music idol Michael Jackson, they started break dancing and established the group called “Smooth Criminals” in 1997.
They dropped M Clef from the group “MMMPP” which later was changed to “MMPP”.
Their artistic talent and uniform dance routine soon made them well known in the city of Jos, where they performed at school functions and on numerous occasions.
Later in 1999, Peter and Paul returned to music school to build up their skills on the console, drums, bass, and rhythm guitar.
Their work includes the soundtracks for various films like Tobi, Mama Sunday, Moment of Bitterness, and Evas River.
Later in 1999, they applied for admission to the University of Abuja to study Business Administration. The Smooth Criminals disbanded when its members left for various different universities.
Subsequently, Peter and Paul framed their own group, called “Double P”, “P&P”, and “Da Pees”, until in the long run settled on “P Square”.
They were managed by Bayo Odusami otherwise known as Howie T, a competent concert promoter and the CEO of Adrot Nigeria Limited.
In 2001, “P-Square” won the “Get Da Mic” competition, and subsequently, Benson and Hedges sponsored their debut album, titled Last Nite, which was released under the Timbuk2 music label.
P-Square was also nominated as “Most Promising African Group” in the Kora Awards three months after the release of their debut album.
They in the long run won the 2003 Amen Award for “Best R&B Group”.
In 2005, they released their second album, Get Squared under their own label, Square Records.
This album was marketed across the nation by TJoe Enterprises, despite the fact that they were still managed by Howie T of Adrot Nigeria Limited.
It was from here on that Mr P net worth and his other half began experiencing a boom.
The video for the second album held the #1 position on the MTV Base diagram for four straight weeks.
The group performed with artists like Ginuwine and Sean Paul, Akin.
Late in 2007, they released their best-selling album so far, Game Over, which sold 8 million copies worldwide. This is a point where Mr P net worth started to rise.
In 2009, P-Square released their fourth studio album, Danger. The album features collaborations with 2 Face Idibia, J Martins, and Frenzy.
The first single called “Danger” is a hip-hop song with cutting synths and a frog bass baseline similar to an Eminem song.
The video affirms this with the presence of clowns and staggered movements before the camera reminiscent of comical videos by Eminem.
They are also known for the close resemblance which the twins portray to that of American R&B singer, Usher Raymond.
On 4 April 2010, P-Square was named the Artist of the Year at the Kora Awards in Ouagadougou, Burkina-Faso while they were in London for a concert at the Troxy, and they received a sum of $1 Million Dollars as the honor winners, in Ebebiyin City.
On 29 August 2014, P-Square released a single track including a top American Artist T.I. which P-Square titled EjeAjo delivered and co-written by VTEK,.
EjeAjo’s official video including T.I. was also released on 29 August 2014 on TV stations, Radio Stations, and top music video sites.
On 14 September 2014, P-Square released their sixth studio album titled Double Trouble.
On 8 October 2015, P-Square was given Range Rover SUVs from Globacom as Glo Ambassadors for their sponsorship of the #DanceWithPeter TV Radio entertainment program.
The program brings dancers from around the globe to showcase their talents for prizes.
It was later in 2016 that they chose to go their various ways in terms of their career. Paul, now Rude Boy, now does his own thing as well.
This was a result of an issue between the company’s representatives and Peter, one of the P-Square twins during the grand finale of the Dance with Peter talent hunt show.
As far back as at that point, Peter has not looked back since then.
This is evident in the improvement in Mr P net worth as he propelled his solo music career by establishing a record label named ‘P Classic Records’.
Also, he has since dropped up to ten hot singles for his fans both at home and abroad.
He also signed artists like Singah and Papii J to his record label.
His singles incorporate Cool It Down, Karma, Away, Woki, Look into My Eyes, Ebaeno, Zombie, One More Night, Like Dis Like Dat, and Too Late.
In addition to Mr P net worth, he has won endorsements from the likes of MTN, Olympic Milk, Adidas, and Kia Motors.
He also owns the Zoom lifestyle lottery which is worth millions of Naira and this business of his adds substantially to his worth until this day.
