Rudeboy Career

Paul Okoye (Rudeboy) has fared well in the music industry, even with his brother.

He started off as an Acapella group with his brother drawing inspiration from Michael Jackson’s dancing steps which he perfected and eventually got bookings for their performances in Jos, Nigeria.

Drawing his inspiration from their music idol Michael Jackson, they began to breakdance, formed the group called “Smooth Criminals” in 1997.

Their artistic talent and precise dance routine soon made them household names in the city of Jos, where they performed at school functions and other occasions.

Later in 1999, Paul returned to music school to develop his skills on the keyboard, drums, bass and rhythm guitar, alongside his twin brother.

The same year, he got admission into the University of Abuja to study Business Administration.

The Smooth Criminals group got disbanded when its members left for various other universities.

Then, Paul and Peter formed their own group, variously called “Double P”, “P&P”, until they eventually settled on “P-Square”.

As far as dancing and choreography were concerned, Paul lay back when the P-Square group performed; his singing pattern clearly defined the P-Square sound.

Despite breaking apart, Paul has risen greatly and found favor in the sight of fans, as he has released the quality of songs in his solo career.
