Why I proposed to Lola Omotayo - P Square's Peter Okoye

One half of the multiple award-winning P-

Square, Peter Okoye, last Tuesday,

shocked many of his fans when he finally

proposed to Lola Omotayo, his long time

friend and mother of his two kids

(Cameron and Aliona) with a diamond ring

and a brand new white Range Rover

Vogue worth N15 million.

The proposal put to rest the widespread

criticisms that have trailed their relationship

over the years. Lola, who said ‘Yes’ to the

proposal, reportedly was close to tears

when the musician slipped the diamond

engagement ring into her finger, and

handed the car keys to her.

Peter, who didn’t give Lola prior notice of

his plan, visited her residence with the car

and parked it inside her compound. On the

bonnet of the vehicle, he also dropped a

rose flower and a love card with the

inscription, ‘Please say Yes.’ This drama

was followed by a long passionate kiss

from the love birds.

Minutes later, the musician posted on his

Instagram and Twitter handle saying, “It’s

about time,” and shortly after, he also

posted that “she said yes.” He later updated

his Blackberry status with “Officially, she’s

now Mrs. Okoye…”

Speaking on why he decided to propose to

Lola, Peter said: “it is something I had

always wanted to do and I knew I would

definitely do this to Lola one day, but I

needed to wait for the right time. Honestly,

she deserves even more from me.” he


On her own, Lola said, “it is a day the Lord

has made. I’m excited the way any woman

in my shoes would.”

The romance between Peter and Lola

started many years ago, even before Peter

became a celebrity.

Their relationship is already blessed with

two kids; Cameron and Aliona Okoye.

A Public Relations expert said that, Lola met

Peter while she was working with FKG2, an

advertising company.
