Psquare Crisis: Festus Keyamo Releases Statement

Below is a statement from Festus Keyamo, the lawyer to the Psquare brothers. According to him, the video released earlier this morning happened in May, 2016. Though he acknowledged there is a problem, he however believes it would be resolved soon. The full statement...

Our attention has been drawn to the on-going feud between the Psquare brothers in online, print and electronic media. We have also been inundated with calls from the media to authenticate the correspondence Peter Okoye sent to our office, indicating his intention to terminate the contract between the brothers for various reasons and the online video showing a purported scuffle between the brothers in our Chambers.

Firstly, while it is obvious that none of these materials were released from our Chambers, we are thoroughly saddened and embarrassed by these developments. As their close friends and lawyers over many years, we have done our very best to manage their differences over time and very prominent personalities have been invited in the past to intervene. Continue...

We are well aware that we have a duty to keep the details of their disagreements confidential, so we shall say nothing here on the issues at stake. But since the disagreement is now in the public domain, and our name has been dragged into the fray, we wish to appeal to members of the public to refrain from jumping into uninformed conclusions about this feud.

None of these talented brothers is at fault. None of them is also wholly justified and correct in their individual positions. We also wish to state categorically that, contrary to widely held opinions, none of their wives is at fault. In fact, the wives have kept their respectable and dignified distances from all the issues involved. THEY HAVE NEVER INTERFERED in any way.

We also want to state that whilst all the three brothers may have genuine grievances, nobody’s life is at risk. All the various incidents that happened in our Chambers (some as late at 12 midnight and 2am and one of which was captured in the online video) arose out of various meetings that were genuine attempts at resolving their differences. Whatever was said by all of them that were provocative were done in the heat of passion, emotion and anger. In fact, the incident in the video circulating online happened sometime around May, 2016. After all those arguments, we all still sat down and signed agreements and we were all happy.

So, we appeal to everyone to please grant the Okoye family the privacy, prayers and support that they need at these trying times. I have also appealed to all of them not to grant further interviews at this point so as not to escalate the issues further. Whatever is going on is the usual siblings’ rivalry experienced in most families. It is nothing unusual.

We are of the strong opinion that the brothers would eventually put away their differences and come back stronger.

Thank you.

Yours most trusted,


Head of Chambers


  1. From the video that we all saw, (and I am sure there were worse scenarios in videos we didn't see) these guys are now capable of causing physical injuries to each other or even outrightly planning the execution of each other.

    Oga Festus should let them all go their separate ways. There is no need to join them together by force.

    The business relationships between these three guys have degenerated to a dangerous level that it can never be salvaged.

    Everyone of them of them need to safely get out of the business relationship that they have with each other, because that is the cause of all the bitterness amongst these three folks.

    It is the failure of their business relationships that is destroying their personal relationships.

    Money, they say, is the root of all evil. Between these three folks, it is nothing but money, pride, and control.

    It is no longer about family, and there is nothing that can be done about it except for all of them to scatter and try to make it individually business wise.

    As long as these guys are doing business together, there will be problems.

    There is no love between them anymore as long as they are in joint business partnerships, Na false friendships called “oju aiye” in Yoruba, remains.

    If they go their separate ways business-wise now, they can then make attempts to repair their broken personal relationships.


  2. It's just so shameful that they are bringing their private lives online

  3. The women in their lives should talk sense to them. The disgrace and embarrassment is not healthy for their children. Internet never forget

  4. Make we hear word jor, their fight did not allow us talk about Tiwa not wishing her husband on his birthday yesterday.

  5. Keyamo, kuku leave them biko. We no send them again.

  6. Festus Keyamo is working for his money

  7. They should break up if the want to. They are not the first and won't be the last
