P-Square member Peter Okoye in January, 2016 revealed to his millions of fans that he was having health issues.
The entertainer shared photos of him undergoing a computerized tomography (CT) scan and requested his fans to pray for him.
Peter’s brother Paul Okoye – who is the song writer and producer of the group – has disclosed that stress and exhaustion led to his brother’s illness.
“First of all Peter went for a checkup. He was going through a lot after we went on the American tour. I don’t know how someone will manage whereby you have a concert Friday, Saturday, then Sunday you book a flight come back to Nigeria, you shoot Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday then you travel Wednesday night, arrive on Thursday in America and perform” Paul Okoye told Hip TV.
“I don’t know how he managed but it was good that he pulled through. And he came back during the December period we were playing concerts, rushing back no rest (sic).
“Usually for P-Suare, we don’t do concerts in January. January was supposed to be our holiday period, anybody can travel. We always go to America, Atlanta chill, get to Miami but this time I’m using that opportunity to work with Muno in the studio” Paul added.
The singer also allayed the fears of their fans, saying nothing is wrong with his brother.
“He travelled at the same time to cool his head. He is fine; there is nothing wrong with Peter. He is doing well,” said Paul Okoye.
Peter Okoye has been in England and Turkey with Cameroonian football star Samuel Eto’o as they try to get his football business up and running.
