R&B duo P-Square, P Square and brother, Jude Okoye, in an interview with BBC London, cleared the air on the issue between them and Akinmayokun Awodumila, popularly known as May D.
P-Square was in London to perform at the HMV Hammersmith Apollo, London for the Love Afrobeat Festival, visited BBC Africa’s studios, just before the concert.
Responding to questions sent by Facebook, Twitter and Google+ followers; CEO, Northside Ent. Ltd/Square Records, Jude Okoye said, "We did not sack May D. We just let him go."
It was reported last week that Square Records released a press statement announcing the end of their business relationship with the only other artist on their label, Mr May D.
According to the statement, the split is due to the irreconcilable differences between the two parties. The Okoyes further wished May D all the best in his career.
Reacting to the statement, May D said "I do not know what they are talking about. You know I don’t stay in their house so how am I meant to know this?”
May D was signed by the label some months ago and has released few hit tracks under the label including ‘Ile Ijo’, ‘Soundtrack’, and the remix he did with Akon and P-Square.
They also sang a cappella one of their latest hits, Beautiful Onyinye, which they recently recorded with American superstar rapper, Rick Ross.
