Peter Okoye, formerly of Psquare, has signed a distribution deal with Empire, an American record label, music publisher and distribution company.
Migos, Kendrick Lamar, Busta Rhymes, Tyga, and Remy Ma are some of the American artistes who have been on the roster of Empire.
Okoye, who recently parted ways with Psquare, made the announcement on Thursday night in an Instagram post.
“Thank you Lord. Just had a digital distribution deal with @peterpsquare! Welcome to the #EMPIRE family,” Okoye wrote.
Empire also announced the new deal with Okoye on Instagram, writing: “Welcome to the #EMPIRE family @peterpsquare! Thank you for @kingkanjafor the introduction & partnership!”
Now known as ‘Mr P’, Okoye has been heavily promoting his solo career since parting ways with his twin brother Paul and manager/elder brother Jude in bitter circumstances.
While Paul recently disclosed that he’s working on new songs, Peter performed in Washington DC on October 1.
This is not the first time Psquare will disband as a result of personal issues. The group went their separate ways in 2016 but later reunited due to pleas from their fans and stakeholders in the music industry.
In the heat of their latest disagreement, Peter had accused Jude of threatening to kill him, and had said he was done with the group for good.
