Award-winning and multi-platinum selling Nigerian sibling duo, P-Square are back with new music.
After a five-year hiatus that left fans reeling, but which also birthed impressive solo careers for the brothers, Peter and Paul Okoye over the past few years, one of the biggest pop duos to ever come out of Africa are back together once again and have just released exciting new comeback singles titled ‘Jaiye (Ihe Geme)’ and ‘Find Somebody‘ for their millions of fans that have been clamouring for some new music from the duo, ever since their reunion was announced back in November last year.
Alongside the release of their new singles ‘Jaiye (Ihe Geme)’ and ‘Find Somebody,’ the Nigerian popstars have also announced their 2022 world tour. The duo’s 100-city reunion world tour will see them headlining 100 cities across North America, Europe, the UK, the Middle East, Asia, and Africa, with key tour dates at the renowned Kings Theatre in New York City on September 2, GSH Event Center in Houston on September 4, the prestigious Royal Albert Hall in London on September 21, and the Madinat Jumeirah Arena in Dubai on December 10.

Written, composed, and produced by the duo themselves, the new records serve as an exciting return to the regular hit-making form for P-Square. While ‘Jaiye (Ihe Geme)’ is driven by the duo’s trademark pop and dance fusion sensibilities, infused with glorious amapiano soundscape to great effect, and their catchy sing-along songwriting about living life to the fullest, P-Square have offered an afro-R&B masterclass for the love-themed B-side ‘Find Somebody,’ which sees the brothers in the wholesome mood for love.
Speaking about their new single, P-Square says, “the decision to release two singles at the same time came from the need to make it up to our fans after our sojourn as individual artists, and to show our creative growth. ‘Jaiye (Ihe Geme)’ is a catchy upbeat track we believe is the perfect vibe for the summer, while ‘Find Somebody’ delivers that unmistakable P-Square vibe with a twist. We can’t wait to share more from our album in the coming months.”
Crowned ‘Artist of the Decade’ by MTV Base Africa, and acclaimed by the likes of the BET Awards, MOBO Awards, Soul Train Awards, and the MTV Europe Music Awards, to mention a few, P-Square have been at the top of the African music landscape for two decades. Despite their 5-year hiatus, the multiple platinum-selling and award-winning Nigerian duo remain among the most streamed African artists in the world, with over 1.5 billion plays across their catalogue, and one of the most followed musicians on the continent, with over 40 million fans across social media.
