Peter Okoye, as he is fondly called added that he doesn’t want to sign artistes. He said, “I invest more money in technology. You guys say Psquare who una help? Who una bring up? Who did Michael Jackson bring up? It is not every body artist must sign. Me I don’t want to sign again. MJ brought his sister, if I bring my sister, you all would say it’s family business. A lot of people need help, but please learn to hold your government responsible. Enough of looking for people to blame you guys are quick to blame celebrities. You are waiting for celebrities to build hospitals, build schools. Meanwhile your government is taking his own kids, abroad for treatment, taking them to school abroad”.
