Peter Okoye Married, Wife, Traditional Wedding Photos, Children

Peter Okoye used to be one half of the favourite Nigerian duo known as PSquare. His brother Paul Okoye was the second half of that duo and for years, the two delivered to their fans hit after hit. Together they attained a fame, unlike anything that any group before them had ever enjoyed in a long time. Earlier on, with their singing and dancing, a lot of people compared them to the late great Micheal Jackson.

The twin brothers were born on the 18th of November 1981. Their parents moved to Jos in Plateau state, Nigeria and raised their family there and so the dream of PSquare actually began in St. Murumba Secondary School, a small Catholic school in Jos, where Peter Okoye and his brother Paul joined the school music and drama club. They started simply enough by mimicking songs by MC Hammer, Bobby Brown and Michael Jackson.

Peter Okoye would late on be part of an a cappella quartet called “MMMPP” (M Clef a.k.a. Itemoh, Michael, Melvin, Peter and Paul). The group soon became a household name in Jos as they drew major inspiration from Micheal Jackson. It was until the group was disbanded because the members all had to go to different universities that PSquare was really born although the brothers initially tried out different names; “Double P”, “P&P”, and “Da Pees.” Peter Okoye and his brother prior to becoming PSquare actually returned to music school to develop their skills on the keyboard, drums, bass and rhythm guitar in 1999.

Peter Okoye Married, Wife, Traditional Wedding

Peter Okoye and Titilola Loretta Omotayo dated for seven years before finally getting engaged and getting married. Lola Omotayo is a marketing representative and their wedding in 2013 was certainly one for the books of celebrity weddings in Nigeria.

On Sunday the 17th of November 2013, the traditional wedding ceremony between Peter Okoye of Psquare and Lola Omotayo took place at the Ark Event Centre, Lekki, Lagos. The wedding was star-studded with all the movers and shakers in Nigerian entertainment industry in attendance. Unfortunately, the billionaire business mogul and Chairman, Globacom Telecoms, Mike Adenuga who was meant to be the chairman of Peter Okoye and Lola Omotayo’s traditional marriage was surprisingly absent but was represented by the COO of the company, Mohamed Jameel.

It was also a bit disappointing to see that the elder brother of Peter and Paul Okoye (P-Square), Jude Okoye was not spotted anywhere around the wedding venue. Reason being that he was still in Ghana after their Saturday show but some of the important guests in attendance include: Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote, Emmanuel Adebayor, Folorunsho Alakija, DJ Zeez, Rotimi Amaechi, Karen Igho, Rukky Sanda, Tee-A, Kanu Nwankwo, Flavour, Bracket, Artquake, Genevieve Nnaji, Victor Osuagwu, Klint the Drunk, Dr Sid, KCEE, Ejike Asiegbu, Don Jazzy, Tiwa Savage, T-Billz, Lambogini, Kate Henshaw, Kanayo O. Kanayo, Mike Ezeruonye, Naeto C, Phyno, DJ Jimmy Jatt, Skuki, Olisa Adibua, Osita Iheme, Chinedu Ikedieze, Lynxxx, Joke Jaiyesimi, Susan Peters, Funke Akindele, Timaya, Banky W, Sunny Irabor, Steel, Ali Baba, J Martins, Manni, Sheyman, May D, M.I., Ice Prince, Toke Makinwa, Uti Nwachukwu, Toyin Lawani, Munachi Abii, Eva Alordiah just to name a few.
