The Okoyes, one of Africa’s most prominent pop music group has lost their mother.
Mrs Josephine Okoye passed on yesterday after battling with illness for sometime now.
As at now, no official statement concerning the death of their mother has been released from their PR Company, Square Image. But close associates to the multiple award winning duo has confirmed to yemojanews.com that Mrs Okoye died in India where she went for treatment.
The late Mrs Okoye is fond of attending her son’s events as often as she can, her last public appearance was at the Psquare Invasion concert in August 2011.
An unrepentant supporter of her kids, the late Mrs Okoye, although a Christian minister, encouraged pop duo Peter and Paul with their music careers, giving her full backing long before it became profitable; even at the risk of upsetting her husband who would have none of it.
