Peter Okoye: This year alone, I’ve done over 60 concerts — all sold out
Mr P says his independence from Psquare has given him full control over his creative process.
He said many people doubted he would be successful when he exited Psquare, but he now calls his own shots.
“Most people actually doubted me,” the ‘Ebeano’ singer said on the Koffee Gang show, adding that “when you’re in a group there are some things you can’t do”.
Speaking further, he said: “Now I’m a boss of my own. I’m in charge. I’m loving it and I’m loving it to the fullest.
“I made up my mind that I want to start afresh. I left P Square who had almost a million subscribers on YouTube.
“For that, you don’t expect me to post my video and get the usual one million viewers in less than 24 hours because I have less subscribers. We started off that way before it got to where it is and I’m not afraid to start afresh.”
Mr P, without giving details, said his exit was something he had to do.
“I didn’t just abandon, something made me do that. I have to keep it to myself,” he explained.
“But the truth is that I’ve moved on, I love it, I love the energy. If you see my show you’ll understand what I’m saying.
“This year alone I’ve done like 60 something concerts, all sold out. I’m happy, I’m blessed. I’m not just talented, I’m gifted.”
The singer said he has a long list of skills that enable him to thrive independently, but he chooses not to brag about them.
“I’m a multi-instrumentalist,” he said.
“I produce but I don’t want to brag about it. I’m a studio engineer as well. I can direct my videos and I still don’t want to brag about it.
“I just want to be the coolest dude. The down to earth person, the person who doesn’t want to raise shoulders.”
