Musical twin brothers P-Square have reconciled, putting an end to their years-long bitter feud.

The duo Peter and Paul Okoye split in 2017 after falling out over a family dispute.

In a post on Instagram on Thursday, the two jointly celebrated their 40th birthday, publicly announcing to followers that they were back together.

In 2015, P-Square were named Artist of the Decade by MTV Africa.

However, it is unclear whether the siblings will release new music. However, fans who have been clamouring for their reconciliation are currently celebrating and want new music from the duo.

Fans are currently hoping for more hits like Do Me, Chop My Money and Bizzybody, which catapulted the pair to fame across the continent and beyond.

While the exact cause of their dispute has not been made public, past attempts to bring the two together, involving politicians, religious leaders and other celebrities, have failed.

Social media posts that they shared since the split hinted that the feud involved their wives and older brother, who was also their manager.

In their reconciliation post on Instagram message on Thursday, Peter and Paul said, “2 heads are better than 1.”

Before their public announcement, many hinted that the two may have ended their row after they followed themselves on each other.

There had already been hints that the two may have ended the row after they followed each other on Instagram; this was followed by a viral video of them embracing on Wednesday.

After their split, they started solo careers as Mr P (Peter) and Rudeboy (Paul); however, neither reached the same success levels as P-Square on their own.

As a duo, they dominated the Nigerian music scene for years and were one of the first groups to export Afrobeats to other parts of the continent.

The two were known for their energetic break-dancing routines that helped them sell-out live performances. They also collaborated with performers, including Tanzania’s Diamond Platinumz and American superstar Akon.

In 2011, the duo signed to Akon’s Konvict Muzik label in 2011 and then a year later clinched a distribution deal with Universal Music Group.

They were named MTV Africa’s Artist of the Decade in 2015; they won the Best Group title three times.
