Peter Okoye (Mr. P), a member of the defunct Nigerian pop group, P-Square is set to sue foreign promoters, Pub Four for copyright infringement.

Mr. P alleges that the foreign promoters used his photograph to advertise his twin brother, Paul’s show in Angola without permission and license.

The musician, who is currently on an African play tour expressed his displeasure via his Instagram handle on the action of the organizers of the Angola show.

According to him, he found it conflicting to see his photograph used for a show that has nothing to do with him as he was billed to perform in a concert at Addis Ababa, capital of Ethiopia.

Mr. P said that “this is the reason why I have to make it clear. I can’t begin to tell you what I have had to deal with in the last couple of days. My management has been accused of double booking me. Also, my promoters are panicking and my fans in Angola have been saying that they were looking forward to my performance in Luanda.

“Let’s be clear about this. There is no need to make this an emotional issue and no point in being sentimental. This is a matter of integrity and business. There is nothing else. I have to protect my business and image. That is all. Once again, the promoters and organisers of that event/festival have to be held accountable. My legal team is on it.”

Mr. P claims that the promoters needed his image to sell their show in Angola.
