Paul Okoye, a Nigerian singer better known as RudeBoy, has come under criticism for performing ‘No One Like You’, at a presidential wedding he graced in Equatorial Guinea.
The nigerian community seem not to be happy with this decision as the group is no longer together.
The 39-year-old singer had taken to his Twitter page on Sunday to share a video of himself performing the song, which was recorded by Psquare, the now-defunct music group he shared with Peter Okoye, his twin brother, at the wedding ceremony.

Shortly after he shared the video, fans took to the comment section to demand the reason for performing a song that belonged to a group he was no longer a part of.
While a segment of users registered their annoyance, saying he wasn’t supposed to perform the song alone, others supported him up with the assertion that they both have equal rights to the song they created together.
“Why are you performing Psquares song alone? This is betrayal though if you don’t know,” a Twitter user wrote.
“They both have equal right to songs of defunct psquare. Can’t you guys just get sense and move on already,” said another user.
The development comes a few days after Peter, better known as Mr P, had slammed critics who constantly ask him to reconcile with Paul and “bring back” Psquare.
Here are some of their reactions below:
Pure Ment, How do you feel performing this Song Alone
You guys should just put an end to this rubbish and come back together as Blood(Psquare)

1. This shows that RudeBoy have not moved on from Psquare.
2. This Shows that RudeBoy doesn't have a good song suitable for an occasion like this.
3. This shows that RudeBoy is rude.
