One of the top telecommunication companies in Nigeria, Globacom, has concluded plans to drop P-Square on its ambassadorial list, TheCable Lifestyle reports.
It was reported that the company is taking this decision because of the controversies that trailed the music duo some months ago over family issues.
TheCable Lifestyle further disclosed that Glo was fed up with the bad press the singing duo of Peter and Paul Okoye, who make up the group, were giving to their brand.
The online platform said reliable sources at Globacom revealed that P-Square had already written a joint letter to the management of the company, begging to reconsider them as brand ambassadors, but that Glo said there was no going back on its decision.
Not too long ago, P-Square announced their reunion and then released a new single entitled ‘Bank Alert’, dropping its video along with it.
However, the song has not impressed some music lovers, who claim the song was trash based on the high standard they had set before their crisis.
Glo signed P-Square in 2010 and their deal is reportedly worth about N65m per year.
Meanwhile, an industry source informed Aproko247 that Glo was seriously worried about the bad press it suffered during the P-Square brawl.
It was said that journalists who never liked Glo capitalised on the crisis to attack the company when writing their stories.
The source said Glo was worried about this, but could not do anything to make journalists stop including Glo in their stories regarding the P-Square scuffle.
As at press time, Aproko247 could not independently confirm if Glo had considered terminating the singers’ contracts. We could also not reach P-Square’s media team for comments.
