P-SQUARE RAISES THE BAR AFTER THE STORM.
After losing out to Britain's Dizzee Rascal as Best International Act at the BET Awards 2010, P-Square [ Paul and Peter Okoye ]has continued to make the headlines in a great way. RV has gathered that the group is set to sign a four year endorsement deal with Globacom, a respected African Telecoms Company. The deal is said to be worth 240 Million Naira and an official announcement will be made any moment from now. According to our reliable sources in Globacom, all that is left is for the company's chairman, Mike Adenuga, to give the final approval for the deal to be sealed. Globacom has been interested in P-Square since 2009 after the company started thinking of dropping its biggest music ambassador, D'banj, after the Koko Master's demand for a raise in his endorsement fee. Globacom is keen to add P-Square to its list of ambassadors but we are not sure if the Okoye twins will be replacing D'banj. The twins who are currently on tour in the United States have refused to comment on the new development.
Apart from the Globacom deal, P-Square was recognized at this year's Sierra Leone Music Television Awards [ SLMTV ] awards ceremony. They won the Best African Artists Award at the event. This is the first time SLMTV is honouring non-Sierra Leonan musicians. P-Square are very popular in Sierra Leone. The group has toured many countries around the world and has succeeded in maintaining a high standard. Active from 2004, the twins who are from Ifite Dunu, Anambra State, Nigeria, have a solid fan base in South Africa. Their current album is 'Danger'(2009) which features Tuface Idibia, Frenzy and J Martins.
