PETER OKOYE ESCAPES DEATH
One-half of rave twins Psquare, Peter escaped death by a stroke of luck when he suffered a domestic accident that left him unconscious for a while.
According to eye-witness account, the 28 year-old performer was trying to mend a damage in the ceiling, inside thier Omole-Lagos residence when he slipped and hit his head on solid concrete.
‘You know it rained terribly that day. We just got back home and he was trying to fix a damage in the ceiling when he fell and hit his head on the stairs. Thank God for the glass cup he was holding. He was the only one there. it was the cup that shattered and attracted us’.
It rained heaviily in Lagos in the late hours of Thursday March 6.
‘Men, that’s how people die o’, exclaimed Peter, while confirming the incident to AyeniTheGreat a day after. ‘I was walking around barefooted when i slipped and hit my head on the staircase. i’m really lucky. But i’ve gotten treatment now. I’m much better’.
The recuperating act now has stitches on the rear part of his head, even though he is not on hospital admission. But It is uncertain if he will be able to hit the stage anytime soon.
It is not the first time to singer-performer will be escaping death by whiskers. Shortly before the dawn of 2008, Pqsuare and thier band were involved in a terrible auto crash while traveling by car to Enugu for a concert. the car crash left the driver seriously wounded while Peter and Paul escaped with minor injuries.
The Anambra-born twins found thier way to mainstream music circles when they came tops at the Benson&Hedges Talent hunt in 2000. Seven years and three albums later, they’ve established themselves as gifted performers to court.
The wave-making duo are up a couple of nominations at the forthcoming HipHopWorld awards holding on March 15.
