Beat Box: NIGERIAN DUO DOING THEIR OWN THING
Psquared recently landed an international record deal, signing with artist and record producer Akon’s Konvict Muzik. A month ago Psquared released a sizzling new hit “Beautiful Onyinye” featuring Rick Ross following a club banger titled “Chop my money”.
When Nigerian twins Peter and Paul Okoye formed Psquared they embarked on a mission of becoming one of the greatest Bands in Africa. The duo have mesmerised Africa with their Afro-beat sound that was made famous by Nigerian greats such as Fela Kuti, Eric “showboy” Akaeza and Sonny Okosun.
Psquared stormed into the music scene in the early 2000’s with their album titled “Last Nite” which was released under record label Timbuk2. The album got nominated for the most promising African Group at the KORA Awards three months after its release.
In 2005 the group went on to release its second album, “Get Squared” under their own label Square Records. The band has amazed crowds the world over sharing stages with international acts such as American RnB star Ginuwine, Sean Paul, Akon, Rick Ross, J.Martins and Busola Keshiro to name a few. The dynamic duo has firmly cemented themselves, as one of the most successful Nigerian acts, following the likes of D’banj, 2Face, Naeto C, and Sasha. It was their third album “Game Over” that initially earned Psquared internationally recognition, several awards nominations and awards. The album sold over eight million copies worldwide ensuring that the duo not only reach for the sky, but exceed the sky.
The duo is currently on tour, sharing their songs that epitomised them and their vibrancy with the rest of the continent and the world. To give a stern warning their electrifying performances will undoubtedly leave the audience reeling for more and shouting their lungs out.
