DEVELOPING STORY: The Okoyes, one of Africa’s most prominent pop music families, have lost their mainframe with the passing yesterday, of their mother Mrs Josephine Okoye.
No word yet from Peter, Paul, Tony, Jude and the rest of the Okoye siblings. But those close to them have confirmed to NET, that the deceased passed after being ill for sometime.
Fond of attending her son’s events as often as she can, her last public appearance was at the Psquare Invasion concert in August 2011.
An unrepentant supporter of her kids, the late Mrs Okoye, although a Christian minister, encouraged pop duo Peter and Paul with their music careers, giving her full backing long before it became profitable; even at the risk of upsetting her husband who would have none of it.
We could not immediately confirm the cause of death, and we’re working to get details from the family.
