Nigerian lawyer representing singing duo, Psquare, Festus Keyamo, has reacted to the viral video involving the Okoye brothers involved almost in a physical fight which allegedly happened in his office. According to Keyamo, the video which circulated online earlier today happened sometime around May, 2016.
Here the statement below:
Our attention has been drawn to the on-going feud between the Psquare brothers in online, print and electronic media. We have also been inundated with calls from the media to authenticate the correspondence Peter Okoye sent to our office, indicating his intention to terminate the contract between the brothers for various reasons and the online video showing a purported scuffle between the brothers in our Chambers.
Firstly, while it is obvious that none of these materials were released from our Chambers, we are thoroughly saddened and embarrassed by these developments. As their close friends and lawyers over many years, we have done our very best to manage their differences over time and very prominent personalities have been invited in the past to intervene.
We also want to state that whilst all the three brothers may have genuine grievances, nobody’s life is at risk. 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 were 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.
We are of the strong opinion that the brothers would eventually put away their differences and come back stronger.
Yours most trusted,
FESTUS KEYAMO, SAN, FCIArb (UK) Head of Chambers .
