The singer, who disclosed this during a recent interview with HipTV, said it’s not about being greedy or selfish, but he no longer has to split his earnings with anybody, and he now enjoys the freedom that comes with defining his music style.
“Hundred percent, I am. I don’t have to share three ways. Call it greed or selfishness. It’s your own cup of tea. I share with nobody. Yes, my management and my team. Fine. But I’m doing my own thing. I’m freer.
“I’m making more money. Freedom is key. I can get a call that there’s a show next week and it’s my daughter’s birthday. I can say, ‘cancel it’. As a group, I couldn’t do that. Moneywise, if I used to share three ways, I share alone.
“What am I doing music for? It’s about doing it how I feel it. It’s not even about the money. But when it comes to that, I make more than I was while in the group,” he said.
KanyiDaily recalls that the Nigerian twin musical group, Peter and Paul Okoye, broke up since 2016, supposedly over a disagreement about the role of ttheir elder brother, Jude Okoye, who wathes their manager.
