The Senegalese born American singer and songwriter spoke to channels Tv on the sidelines of the Expo 2020 in Dubai and he mentioned the famous P-square break-up that shook the Nigerian industry in 2016.
Akon described the duo as family and he said the band’s break up broke his heart.
“It broke my heart because we are family. These are brothers and they shared the same womb and I always felt money should not get in between them.
“It was being together that made them who they were. But sometimes you have differences [between people from the same] family and there are other aspects of it – there is pressure in the music business, there is a lot of pressure in relationships.”
The Okoye brothers have finally reconciled but nothing has been said on whether there will be a reunion or they will continue their careers individually.
P-Square featured Akon and former label signee May d on hit song Chop my money remix in 2012.
