Industry News: (Pictures) P-Square Bury Mom, R.I.P Josephine Okoye

*Heavy sigh.* On August 2nd, 2012, one of Africa’s most impressive musicians, P-Square, buried their mother Josephine Okoye in Anambra State (Eastern part of Nigeria). I discussed her death on AML a little over a week ago which came as a shock to her family and the music industry at large.

This is a difficult thing to see in pictures. I can only imagine the pain Peter, Paul, Jude Okoye and the rest of their family members are going through. My condolences to the family. May her soul rest in perfect peace.
