Counsel for Paul and Peter Okoye (alias PSquare), Festus Keyamo (SAN), has absolved their wives of blame in the brothers’ feud.
He appealed to the public to refrain from jumping into what he called uninformed conclusions about the musicians’ disagreement.
Keyamo said none of their family’s life was at risk as claimed.
He said in a statement: “None of these talented brothers is at fault. None of them is also wholly justified and correct in their individual positions.
“We also wish to state categorically that, contrary to widely held opinions, none of their wives is at fault.
“In fact, the wives have kept their respectable and dignified distances from all the issues involved. They have never interfered in any way.”
Keyamo added that while the three brothers (including their manager Jude) may have genuine grievances, nobody’s life was at risk as claimed in media reports.
“All the various incidents that happened in our Chambers (some as late at 12 midnight and 2am and one of which was captured in the online video) arose out of various meetings that were genuine attempts at resolving their differences.
“Whatever was said by all of them that were provocative was done in the heat of passion, emotion and anger.
“In fact, the incident in the video circulating online happened sometime around May, 2016. After all those arguments, we all still sat down and signed agreements and we were all happy.
“So, we appeal to everyone to please grant the Okoye family the privacy, prayers and support that they need at these trying times.
“I have also appealed to all of them not to grant further interviews at this point so as not to escalate the issues further. Whatever is going on is the usual siblings’ rivalry experienced in most families. It is nothing unusual.
“We are of the strong opinion that the brothers would eventually put away their differences and come back stronger,” Keyamo said.
