Rudeboy (Paul Okoye) Biography: Early life

Rudeboy was born on 18th November 1981 as Paul Nonso Okoye in Jos, the capital of Plateau State, Nigeria. He has a twin brother named Peter Okoye. Paul Okoye grew up in a large family that includes other siblings, namely: Jude Okoye, Mary Okoye, Tony Okoye, Lilian Okoye and Ifeanyi Okoye.

Together, they are usually referred to as the PSquare family or the Okoye family. Paul grew up with his parents and siblings in the city of Jos. They are originally indigenes of Anambra State but the family spent most of the 1980s and 1990s in Plateau State.

Before he adopted the stage name ‘Rudeboy’, Paul Okoye attended St. Murumba Secondary School in Jos. It was while he was a student there that he started pursuing music as an extracurricular activity.

Rudeboy (Paul Okoye) Biography: Early music career

Paul Okoye and his twin brother Peter joined the St. Murumba Secondary School music and drama club as young teens. They began singing and dancing as part of the social club. The Okoye twins were heavily influenced by MC Hammer, Bobby Brown and Michael Jackson. They copied their songs and dance steps.

Seeing that they were not just average singers and dancers, the twins came together with three of their friends formed their first group. It was later described as an a cappella group called MMMPP and it consisted of M Clef a.k.a. Itemoh, Michael, Melvin, Peter and Paul.

After some time, they focused more on dancing and started closely imitating Michael Jackson and his group of dancers. They changed their group’s name to MMPP in 1997 after M Clef left. Then, the group became known as Smooth Criminals in reference to their idol, Michael Jackson’s 1998 hit.

Between 1997 and 1998, MMPP were popular for their electrifying and precise dance routines. They soon became household names in Jos and performed at school functions and other events in the city.

In 1999, Paul and Peter Okoye decided to take their music pursuit more seriously. They attended a music school to hone their skills on the keyboard, drums, bass and rhythm guitar. However, during this time, their father considered music as a waste of time and urged the brothers to focus on education instead.

In those early days, the twins recorded soundtracks for Nigerian films such as “Tobi”, “Mama Sunday”, “Moment of Bitterness” and “Evas River”. They eventually got admission into the University of Abuja to study business administration.

Their friends Michael and Melvin also left Jos for their schooling and the Smooth Criminals group officially dissolved. Finally on their own at the university, Paul and Peter decided to continue performing. They struggled to find a name that would stick.

First, the Okoye twins chose Double P as their stage name but later changed it to P&P. This name did not stay around for long before they changed it to Da Pees. Eventually, they agreed on the now-iconic name – PSquare.

At the time, Bayo Odusami, popularly called Howie T, was PSquare’s manager. He was an experienced concert promoter and a talent scout. Howie T was also a DJ and is famously regarded as the man ‘who promoted PSquare to stardom’.

Besides PSquare, Howie T promoted, discovered or managed several popular musicians like Akon, Shank, Sound Sultan, Faze, Skuki, Black Solo, Skales, Aramide, and many more.

In 2001, PSquare won the Grab Da Mic competition that was sponsored by the cigarette brand Benson & Hedges. Winning the competition meant that the company bankrolled one studio album. This was how PSquare got sponsorship for their debut album.

Rudeboy (Paul Okoye) Biography: Music career as part of PSquare

Last Nite (2003)

Paul Okoye and his twin brother Peter, or PSquare as they were known, released their debut album in May 2003. The album titled “Last Nite” was released under Timbuktu (Timbuk2) Music record label owned by Howie T. In fact, Neusroom claimed that the twins were living in Howie T’s Ilupeju home at the time.

“Last Nite” produced two major singles, namely: “Senorita” and “Igbedu”. Their elder brother Jude Engees Okoye produced the album. Benson & Hedges sponsored the album according to their 2001 agreement. The “Last Nite” album contains 9 tracks.

PSquare was nominated in the Most Promising African Group category at the KORA Awards in 2003. Paul Okoye and his brother Peter won their first major music award at the 2003 A.M.E.N Award for the Best R&B Group, which was awarded to PSquare.

The music video for “Senorita” became a hit because the brothers perfectly executed Michael Jackson-inspired dance moves that were nothing like what Nigerians had seen in home-grown singers before then.

In October 2008, PSquare released “Last Nite Reloaded” on iTunes. While it features a different album cover, it contains the same tracks as the original.

Get Squared (2005)

In May 2005, PSquare released “Get Squared” as their second studio album under their own record label, Square Records. TJoe Enterprises marketed the album although the twins were still under the management of Howie T at the time.

The album features popular singles such as “Story”, “Temptation”, “Bizzy Body”, “Omoge Mi” and “Get Squared”. The music video for “Bizzy Body” topped the MTV Base chart for four consecutive weeks. “Get Squared” houses 13 tracks, three of which were instrumentals of tracks on the album.

With the release of “Get Squared”, PSquare consolidated their place at the summit of Nigerian music. The album reportedly sold more than 5 million copies all over Nigeria, giving them ultimate celebrity status.

Meanwhile, music critics heavily criticised the album for sampling too much of Western R&B hits songs and for allegedly lacking its own identity. Despite these perceptions, the album was popular and many teenagers and even older people at the time of its release knew most of its tracks by heart. Aituaje Iruobe, known professionally as Waje, was the only other artist credited on the album for her vocal contribution to the “Bizzy Body” and “Omoge Mi” tracks.

PSquare’s “Get Squared” album won Album of the Year and Best R&B/Pop Album awards at The Headies in 2006. It also won Album of the Year at the Nigerian Music Awards (NMA) in 2006.

Singles from the album won several awards and were nominated for many more. In May 2009, PSquare released “Get Squared” on iTunes.

Game Over (2007)

Two years after the release of “Get Squared”, PSquare dropped “Game Over” as their third studio album in May 2007 under Square Records. It was released on iTunes.

“Game Over” sold an approximate 8 million copies worldwide. The album contains 14 tracks, three of which are instrumentals.

The album’s lead single was “Do Me” along with others such as “No One Like You”, “Roll It”, “More Than A Friend” and “Ifunanya”. Each of the singles mentioned above came with its music video, which was very popular at the time.

For example, the music video for “No One Like You” topped charts in Nigeria for four weeks and stayed in the top ten for more than a month.

Jude Engees Okoye, the older brother of the duo, directed all the music videos for the singles. Waje again was credited for her contribution to “Do Me”. The single won Video of the Year award at Channel O Music Video Awards in 2008.

In August 2007, Northside Entertainment re-released “Game Over” and it contains two new bonus tracks, “Temptation” (featuring Alaye) and “Bizzy Body” (featuring Alaye). Northside Entertainment is a record label owned by Jude Engees Okoye.

Danger (2009)

PSquare released their fourth studio album titled “Danger” in September 2009. The album was released under the Square Records label. It was recorded between 2007 and 2009.

Five singles supported “Danger”, namely: “I Love You”, “Possibility”, “E No Easy”, “Danger” and “Gimme Dat”. Nigerian singer, 2Face Idibia (now known as 2Baba) was featured on “Possibility” while J Martins was featured on “E No Easy”.

Again, Jude Engees Okoye directed the music videos for all five singles off of the “Danger” album. While the album features 14 tracks, four are instrumentals as was customary for PSquare. “Danger” was released as a physical CD but was made available for digital downloads as well.

Music critics faulted the album’s first track “Danger” for allegedly oversampling a Western song. This time, the roots were traced to an Eminem song with similarities drawn between the similar cutting synths and a frog bass baseline.

Meanwhile, PSquare won the 2010 Producer of the Year award at Lil Perry Productions Awards. The duo was also named Artiste of the Year at KORA Awards in 2010.

The Invasion (2011)

In July 2011, PSquare released their fifth studio album titled “The Invasion” under Square Records. The duo enlisted the help of both local and international artists for this project. Tiwa Savage, Naeto C, Waje, May D, Eva Alordiah, Muna, Akon and Rick Ross all contributed to the success of “The Invasion”.

To promote the album, PSquare held a concert called The Invasion Concert at the Expo Hall of Eko Hotel in Lagos. May D, Lynxxx, Eva Alordiah, Muna, 9ice, Ikechuwku and Bovi all performed at the event.

“The Invasion” was released as an R&B album but it contains other musical sounds such as reggae, hip hop, Europop and even contemporary highlife.

Again, some critics pointed out the issue of over-reliance on already popular songs and the lack of originality. However, there was praise from others who commended its lyrical contents, quality sound and accurate mix.

“The Invasion” produced 14 tracks with some of the most popular ones being “Beautiful Onyinye”, “Chop My Money”, “Forever” and “Bunieya Enu”. In 2012, it won the Album of the Year and Best R&B/Pop Album awards at The Headies.

PSquare and May-D featured international superstar Akon on the remix of “Chop My Money” in November 2013. The music video became one of their most popular videos. It currently has 16.6 million views on YouTube.

Greatest Hits (2013)

PSquare released “Greatest Hits” as a compilation album in May 2013, under Square Records. The singing duo compiled their best songs over the years into one project and included “Alingo” as its lead single.

PSquare’s 2013 “Greatest Hits” project contains 17 tracks. “Alingo” peaked at number 1 on MTV Base’s Official Naija Top 10 Chart and Afribiz’s Top 100 chart as well. They released the project as a physical CD but made it available for digital downloads.

Double Trouble (2014)

PSquare released “Double Trouble” as the sixth studio album of the group. It eventually became the group’s last album. It was released in September 2014 under Square Records.

T.I., Don Jazzy, Awilo Longomba, Jermaine Jackson and Dave Scott all featured as guest artists on the album. Credited producers include Vtek, Charles Duke, Mecca E, Oscar, Rudeboy and Mr P.

“Double Trouble” contains 16 tracks. Pre-released singles such as “Alingo”, “Personally” and “Testimony” found spots on the album. Other singles from the album include “Ejeajo”, “Shekini” and “Bring It On”. They came two weeks before the album dropped.

“Double Trouble” produced other memorable tracks like “Collabo”, “Ogadigide”, and “MMS (Mugu Money Spender)”. They also released a smash hit song in 2016 titled “Bank Alert”.



Dance With Peter (2015)

In October 2015, Nigerian telecommunication giant Globacom penned an ambassadorial deal with PSquare and both Rudeboy (Paul Okoye) and his brother Mr P (Peter Okoye) received Range Rover SUVs as part of the deal.

Also, Globacom became official sponsors of Dance With Peter, a TV programme that was stylised as #DanceWithPeter. Dancers from different parts of the world come on the show to display their skills and contend for prizes.

It was during the grand finale of the Dance With Peter show that the public became aware that brothers were having issues. The simmering problems led to Globacom not renewing its contract with PSquare in 2016. In the next section, we discuss the controversy that led to the splitting of PSquare.

Why did PSquare break up?

Before 2017, there had been rumours since the 2010s that PSquare was on the verge of a breakup. However, they always found a way to mend bridges and push on.

In 2017, there were rumours that PSquare was no more and that the brothers were going their separate ways. Paul Okoye’s twin, Peter, also came online to confirm that there was trouble in their group.

Peter’s side of the story on PSquare break up

According to Peter, their elder brother Jude had been a poor manager for several years. Peter accused Jude of not resolving problems and even when he tried to mend issues, he was shut out.

Additionally, he said that Paul was Jude’s favourite and that they teamed up against him on multiple occasions. Pulse mentioned that Peter accused his siblings of having a private business venture that they hid from him.

Meanwhile, 360 Nobs reported that Peter claimed that Jude selected more of Paul’s songs to feature on their joint albums than his.

He also mentioned that he felt betrayed that he was not allowed to sign Cynthia Morgan to P Classic, a personal record label he was trying to build in 2013. However, Jude went on to sign Morgan to Northside Entertainment.

Peter Okoye also claimed that his brothers threatened his well-being and that of his family. Thus, he was done with the group and preferred to strike out on his own.

In September 2017, he sent a letter to the group’s lawyer, Festus Keyamo (SAN), to terminate the contract between himself and his twin brother Paul.

Paul’s side of the story on PSquare’s break up

Paul Okoye revealed in a 2018 interview, about a year after the official break up of PSquare, that the split had affected him negatively. The singer, who now goes by the stage name Rudeboy, said that he was unable to record anything for nine months.

He also mentioned that Peter had left the group three times in the past but had always come back. However, the 2017 breakup was different in that he did not wait for his brother to return and instead moved on.

Paul Okoye further revealed that he wrote many PSquare’s hit songs like “Do me”, “No one like You”, “Busy Body” and “Temptation.”

According to fans, Paul also accused Peter’s wife, Lola Omotayo, of being behind the issue between the brothers after Paul shared a post on his Instagram page that read, “Only a woman can come where there’s peace and destroy it.”

Peter, Paul and Jude Okoye fight video

In 2017, Linda Ikeji’s Blog posted a video of Jude Okoye threatening to assault Peter physically while Paul Okoye repeatedly said “shame on you” to his twin. The fight had ensued in PSquare’s lawyer’s office.

Peter later apologised to fans over the fight with his brother Paul although he maintained that there was no going back to the group.

Since PSquare split in 2017, there have been fans hoping that the brothers will reunite and they seemed to have gotten their wish in August 2020 when a video surfaced of Peter apologising to Paul over their issues. However, it turned out to be an old video.

Peter Okoye went on his Twitter page to write: “Stop wasting your time… that’s an old video 2015?… Forever MrP. The Prodigal Album Loading… #MrP” 

Rudeboy (Paul Okoye) Biography: Music career after PSquare split

After the famous PSquare group split up, Paul Okoye struck out on his own. As revealed above, he claimed that it took him a long time before he adjusted to performing alone. However, once he found his feet, he never looked back.

Paul Okoye also mentioned that the stage name Rudeboy was something that stuck to him after he used it in the intro of “Bizzy Body” back in 2005. It was from the name Rudeboy that he also came about the Kingrudy moniker.

“Fire Fire” (2017) and “Reason With Me” (2019)

As a solo artist, Paul Okoye (also known as Rudeboy) released his official solo debut songs in 2017. They include singles such as “Fire Fire” and “Nkenji Keke”. He dropped “Somebody Baby” in 2018 before featuring Reminisce on “Is Allowed”.

Rudeboy released “Reality” in 2018 and enlisted the input of Dancehall singer Patoranking on another single titled “Together”. It seemed that it was not until 2019 that he started to get it right.

First, dynamic indigenous rap duo Olamide and Phyno appeared on Rudeboy’s “Double Double” track. Then, his 2019 official debut song “Reason With Me” cleared obstacles on its way to the top of charts. The music video for the song became the most viewed African music video on YouTube in 2019 with 40 million views. The video has garnered nearly 84 million views as of December 2020.

Since then, Rudeboy has released other singles such as “Audio Money”, “Take It”, “Woman” and “Oga”.

Rudeboy (Paul Okoye) Biography: Fire Department Inc. (FDI)

In 2019, Paul Okoye, who is popularly known as Rudeboy or Kingrudy, established his own record label known as Fire Department Inc. (FDI). He announced the record label via his Instagram page. As of when this article was published, we are yet to see any artist signed under the company except its founder.

Clash with Davido

On Wednesday 18 November 2020, Paul and Peter Okoye held their 39th birthdays in different locations. The twins have not been on good terms for nearly three years after they went their separate ways dissolving their music group.

On their birthday, Peter Okoye had an indoor party. Meanwhile, Paul Okoye held a bigger party by a pool with fellow superstars such as Yemi Alade and Harrysongz in attendance. His elder brother Jude Okoye also attended his party.

In response to the separate birthday parties, Afrobeats singer, Davido tweeted: “Y’all n----s that went to Peter and Paul’s bday separately y’all p---y as f--k!! Them n----s is TWINS !! Not my business but S--t hurts I’m angry Walai.”

Rudeboy took offence at Davido’s statement and went on Instagram to reply to him. He wrote on his Insta Story:

“On what level and what audacity do you have to call my family and friends p---y… bro, has it come to that? am highly disappointed with you…

“You don’t have the right to insult my family and friends… That’s f*cked up. For your infor… 90% of those that came to mine still went to his… Same the other way round. And I respect their decision.”

Rudeboy (Paul Okoye) Biography: Net worth

When Rudeboy was part of the PSquare group, the duo was regarded as the richest music group in Nigeria and even Africa as a whole. The brothers were once estimated to be worth at least $26 million. They appeared on Forbes List of 40 most influential celebrities.

Other sources claim that PSquare was worth about $20 million in 2017. However, since the group dissolved, their wealth has been split.

ICYMI: Psquare reportedly put their multi-million naira mansion in Ikeja up for sale

Some sources claim that Rudeboy is currently worth about $10 million in 2020. There is no proof of how the figure was arrived at and we thus advise that this detail should be taken with a pinch of salt.

In 2019, Rudeboy was alleged to have secured a big-money deal with MTN. Apart from endorsements from big brands, Rudeboy still makes money from performing at events.

While he has definitely dropped in ranking of the top 10 richest musicians in Nigeria, Rudeboy is by no means totally out of the conversation when it comes to wealth.

Rudeboy (Paul Okoye) Biography: Personal life

Paul Okoye is in a relationship with Anita Isama, whom he met just before leaving the University of Abuja in 2004. On 22nd March 2014, Paul Okoye, who also goes by the stage name Rudeboy married Anita Isama.

Anita Isama (now Anita Okoye) gave birth to their first son Andre in 2013, in their Atlanta, Georgia house. The couple also welcomed a set of twins in 2017. Rudeboy’s twins are named Nadia and Nathan.

Rudeboy Paul Okoye bioraphy

In 2012, Paul Okoye lost his mother, Josephine Okoye. She died in a hospital in Kolkata, India, where she had been undergoing treatment. His father, Mazi Moses Okoye, died in 2014 of cardiac arrest.

Final thoughts…

Paul Okoye was one half of the defunct PSquare duo that shook Nigeria’s music industry with their electrifying dance performances and quality music. They had reigned supreme for close to 13 years before they split up with each artist going his way.

As Rudeboy, Paul Okoye is clearly striving and is not ready to throw in the towel. He has a couple of songs that bear witness that he is a great artist in his own right. While his popularity has dropped since he became Rudeboy, fans can now identify with Paul Okoye as a separate individual.

We and many other music fans are thrilled to have witnessed these two eras and are happy to have been part of the journey so far. We wish Paul Okoye, aka Rudeboy, all the best as he continues giving us good songs to vibe to.
