Linda Ikeji confirms Paul Okoye finally accepts baby with 19 year old beauty queen

by Nigeria Music Network / 2,981 Views

Naija Gist: Linda Ikeji recently confirmed Paul Okoye of the popular P-Square duo, have accepted his baby son with 19 year old MBGN 2012 contestant beauty queen and former Miss Plateau State, Elshama Igbanoi.

According to Linda Ikeji blog, "in May, we all heard that Paul Okoye, the other half of singing sensation P-Square, had welcomed a baby with 19 year old MBGN 2012 contestant, Elshama Igbanoi.

Paul Okoye has never reacted to the story in the either confirm or deny that he is indeed the little boy's father. The boy was born April 7th in the UK, four days before Paul and his girlfriend Anita welcomed their son, Andre, in Atlanta.

Paul at the time told the Igbanoi family that he's going to do a DNA test to ascertain paternity. Maybe he's done it because he has officially acknowledged the boy as his."


Few months ago, SaharaReporters had reported Paul Okoye refused to claim paternal responsibility for his new born son from 19 year old beauty queen, Elshama Igbanoi. Here's how it was reported:

"Nigeria’s hip hop sensation, P Square (real name Paul Okoye), has reportedly abandoned the mother of his second baby in a London hospital where the woman recently gave birth to the entertainer’s baby.

A few weeks after welcoming his first new born baby in Atlanta, P Square – who is also known as P2 – had another baby delivered for him in a London hospital by a former beauty pageant contestant. However, this time, P Square has refused to claim paternal responsibility for the baby boy."

SaharaReporters further disclosed their sources said the new mother had been in touch with P2, but he had not been forthcoming beyond telling her that he plans to arrive in London for a DNA test to ascertain paternity. SaharaReporters spoke to the woman’s father, Benson Igbanoi, in Abuja. Mr. Igbanoi stated that his daughter was faithful to the musician. He also revealed that he had sent several emails to P Square concerning his daughter’s pregnancy for him, but had received no response.

Another source said Elshama's family had contacted Paul Okoye's father and aunt to persuade the musician to accept responsibility for his baby. Ms. Elshama insists that she never slept with any man except for P2, adding that she lost her virginity to him when she was 17 years old.

SaharaReporters learnt that the London hospital where she gave birth has not received any payments. “The hospital has been harassing both Elshama and her mother to pay hospital bills of over £5,000 that have been incurred,” said one source. The baby boy has been named Michelle Paul Okoye.

In a twist to the story, a source close to the former beauty queen said Ms. Elshama was a close friend to Anita, the other woman who gave birth to another baby for P2 a few weeks ago in Atlanta, Georgia.

by Nigeria Music Network / 1,861 Views

If you are yet to watch Peter and Paul Okoye of P-Square's latest music video titled 'Personally', which was in memorial of the late pop king Michael Jackson; then you are sleeping on a bike. Because, four years later (after death), Nigeria's P-Square resurrects Michael Jackson!

Nigeria Music Network team members really praise Peter and Paul Okoye of P-Square for resurrecting the late pop king Michael Jackson in their creative music video 'Personally'. The video is a gift from P-Square to the world in appreciation of the impact the late music legend had on their career and that of many others - one way or another. June 25th every year is a big day as the world remembers Michael Jackson.

Nigeria's kings of AfroPop music, P-Square have said undeniably several times when asked who they got their influence from; they always mentioned Michael Jackson. In the music video for 'Personally', Paul Okoye did most of the singing as usual while Peter Okoye took care of the Michael Jackson dance moves - in a way never done before in Nigeria, Africa, and even internationally.

It must have took the duo P-Square several months if not years of training to have been able to perfect Michael Jackson's dance moves to this extent. The PSquare Personally music video have the power to keep you glued to your seats and no doubt; most people, if not everyone; would watch the music video more than once. 

P-Square - Personally (Michael Jackson Tribute Music Video)
