Mrs Okoye, Mother of Nigeria’s pop duo P Square and Jude Okoye has passed on. 

She was reported to be ill for a short while and was receiving medical treatment at the St Nicholas Hospital before she was flown abroad for further treatments.  

The nature of her illness was not disclosed. A staunch supporter of her kids, the late Mrs Okoye,although a Christian minister, encouraged pop duo Peter and Paul with their music careers, giving her full backing long before it started to pay off; even at the risk of upsetting her husband who would have none of it.

Known to attend her son’s events very often , her last public appearance was at the Psquare Invasion concert in August 2011.
The nature of her illness was not disclosed. We at sympathize with P-Square and the whole family and pray that Almighty God grants them the fortitude to bear this great loss.

May her gentle soul rest in Perfect Peace.
