Actress Mercy Johnson: I weep for P-Square

Nigerian actress Mercy Johnson has pleaded with the country’s music powerhouse P-Square not to split. The Okoye family has recently witnessed bitter exchange of words and blame games with Peter insisting on putting an end to “family business.” Just a few days ago, the one half of the Nigerian RnB act went solo. Peter’s solo debut comes after several social media confrontations ensued between him and the duo’s management, headed by their elder brother, Jude Okoye. Peter announced his new management on Instagram on Monday, March 14th. “Work mood, thanks for all the love support and concern, please continue to remain blessed as always,” he wrote before adding the new management’s contact. Prior to making his announcement, the outspoken half of P-Square last week Tuesday released and self-promoted a single titled Look Into My Eyes. He had also performed alone at a night club in Abuja with the stage name, ‘Mr P’. Following the protracted drama between the Okoye’s, Mercy Johnson has taken to social media to urge the duo to stick together. Mercy – who has been off the screens for a while now following the birth of her daughter – took to Instagram and wrote: “All we ask Lord is peace at the end. In tears as I listen, I am calling heaven as I pray #DontSplitPSquare#.” Entertainment pundits in Nigeria believe that the duo’s mother would never have permitted the ongoing drama which began in 2013 – immediately after her death.
