The management of Peter and Paul Okoye, the sensational twin singers, has come out to reveal the reasons their entertainment outfits, Square Records and Northside Entertainment don’t belong to any collecting society.
Many music fans have been itching to find out why P-Square are one of the few groups operating on the music scene without a necessary backup from a collecting society, the manager of the twin brothers and their sibling John Okoye, has spoken up.
“We have been in show business long enough and experienced the joy and pain to know that collecting societies are not the solution to the problems facing the music industry, the major problem is piracy. We want the Federal Government to approve and empower a body or agency in the mould of NAFDAC to tackle the problem. The entertainment industry urgently needs a national agency to tackle piracy, copyright law violators and royalty defaulters.’’
He explained further, “P-Square and our companies, Square Records and Northside Entertainment, have not joined any collecting society because we don’t want to give any organisation the power to collect royalties on our behalf without showing a keen interest in solving our greatest problem, which is piracy. It doesn’t make sense. I’m not against any collecting society. But come to me as an approved body recognised by the government to fight piracy and I will carry you on my shoulder because I know there will be more money at the end of the day for me. Also, I would know that my future is guaranteed.”
