Nigerian duo P-Square represent Africa’s rise in the pop world

When P-Square talk about keeping it in the family, they mean it. The Nigerian pop duo are not only twins who perform together, they also live and record together in a compound in the country’s capital, Lagos.

“It is a very good arrangement for us,” says Paul Okoye, 32, who is eight minutes older than brother Peter.

“We can be at home chatting or just relaxing and then when we suddenly have an idea or we want to try something, we just go to the studio in the house and play around. Paul and I have a great bond in that I know what he is thinking, so we just feed off each other.”
