P-Square has broken up!?

ourafrica:

Although there is no official statement from the parties yet, it appears that there is trouble brewing up in the P-square camp.

According to celebrity blogger Linda Ikeji, “On Wednesday April 16th, I gathered from industry sources that the brothers fought each other physically during rehearsals. They had to be separated by their dancers. This is fact! I hear one of the wives is causing some of the problems between the brothers.”
Also, their elder brother and manager tweeted this a few minutes ago “After ten years of hard work, it’s over and I’m done!!!”
The Okoyes – P-square and Jude Okoye delved into music in 2004 and have been active ever since.
So far, they have released six successful albums.

The International Republican Institute, in partnership with McNally Temple and Associates. created this documentary “A Song for Naija”. The film highlights the work young activists and entertainers are doing to encourage youth participation in Nigeria’s political process through the Dream 4 Naija campaign. 

The documentary features some of Nigeria’s biggest hip-hop artists, including Banky W, Wizkid, Niyola, Skales, Shaydee, Suka, eLDee, 2Face and Cobhams Asuquo, who have recorded the Dream 4 Naija anthem Change (featured on the album Empire Mates State of Mind by the Eme All Stars and available on iTunes and Spotify) and are a leading part of the effort to get young Nigerians involved in the country’s political and civic process.

Madden lists among influences Gustav Klimt and images of Egyptian royalty. You can view many, many more images of her work here at her official website.

I find these breathtaking acrylic and mixed media paintings evocative of both the Fayum Mummy Portraits and early medieval icons featuring the Black Madonna.
