Popular Nigerian singer Peter Okoye, who is twin brother to Paul Okoye from the P-Square band; today said a money prayer in favor of the Igbo people of Nigeria, based on the nationwide assumption from other ethnic groups that Igbo people love money too much; Nigeria Music Network is gisting you. 


Some fans understood the prayer is just a joke or some sort of humor that amuses those who read it and get it; while others reacted negatively with some calling Peter "Selfish". Other fans, laughed at the joke, and many others claimed the prayer in their personified ways. 

Without further ado, below is Peter Okoye's controversial prayer, followed by some of the comments that followed: 

This prayer is 4 all IGBOS:
Dear MONEY, since all the ethnic groups in Nigeria, agree & constantly confirm that it is only the IGBOS that LOVE you so much. Please rise and visit every Igbo person struggling anywhere around the globe...visit them wit all your different clothes like DOLLARS, POUNDS, EUROS and NAIRA. You may leave out other TRIBES since they keep denying u in public .. Amen!....
If u are proudly lgbo, let me hear a thunderous Igbotic Ameeeeeen!!!.
Ngwa biko bless another nwa afor'Igbo with this message.
