i knew that this would happen,....when d'banj featured snoop dog and signed with kanye west.......on this same blog and nigeriafimls.com i predicted that p-square would respond to this.........

p-square are more positioned than any other artist africa has ever know,....they are the biggest and most sophisticated artist in africa......

they may never win the grammy because of their genre of music.....but for the fact that they have twice the fans of any other artist in africa...they own african music.......

i have a lot of respect for d'banj but i believe that p-square are more strategic and stronger...

I'm not in anyway surprised. Hardwork pays and foresight and perseverence is the key to success. I'm happy for this duo. At least goodnews can come from Nigeria apart from stories from thieves in Abuja.

@ the second Anonymous May 31, 2012 7:29 PM okay you were making sense until you uttered the "they are the biggest and most SOPHISTICATED artist in africa...... Are you high on cheap drugs? Please never ever use that word sophisticated in the same sentence as PSAQUARE. Two totally opposite words. How dare you? have you heard them speak and conduct interviews? do they know them in U.K ni lele ni be yen? have they collabo'd with any foreign artists and Akon does not count cos he is also African...Pass the mic mennnnnn

Lanictx, just curious what part of naija are you from cos it is typical of people from the East and all those areas not to recognize when people have done well and just blindly support anyone from their area. Dbanj has done well for himself and exposed himself beyond naija, p square are doing the exact same thing so what are you yarning?

These guys keep moving up by the day, I bet they have large fan base in Africa that's why Universal music is interested in signing as I know they don't do baad deals.......Peter, Paul & Jude keep doing what you do best.

@Anon 7:29, u r just spot on. these guys are not just Nigerian artistes buh African artistes. like u said they may never win a grammy buh they truly own african music.

They are just something else. well positioned, strategic biz men and extremely talented. who says you have to go to London or NewYork to make it.

Congrats Psquare and keep doing africa proud. i'm a big fan....

Nzube said...

@Hun?...even your name is as LamE as your remark. What in essence is SOPHISTICATION,if I may ask...to speak English?? BUSH-MGBATI AFRICAN MENTALITY!! and what from hell is "ni lele ni be yen"...what esoteric tongue is that? FYI, one does not need to speak "your English" to be a renowned success, and SOPHISTICATION DOESNT have anything at all to do with English. These guys are Naija's biggest artistes...STOP HATING ON THEM. Linda, pls stop publishing some of these "hate remarks"..I suggest again. we take a step forth, and these tribalists take us twice back...#JUST SAYING#. CONGRATS MY BROS, P SQUARE...WE SO PROUD OF YOU GUYS!!!

@Hun and Nzube. You are both being tribalistic. I agree that psquare cannot be termed sophisticated but no one in that naija has done as good as they have and no other act is as successful as they are. Nzube you called huh "bush mgbati" and called his/her language estoric. You are even worse. You both need to take several seats cos no one should be talking tribes or comparing dbanj and psquare. They are all naijas and I personally im proud of all their accomplishments
