Just when we thought things were going well, P-Squared are now at loggerheads with local TV Station “SoundCity”. The war started or rather was revealed to the general public when a fan tweeted “It’s been a while since Soundcity played any of P-Square’s music videos mmmmh”, to which Peter Okoye of P-square replied “Don’t waste your time dear, they will not play them” and went on to list a number of stations that the fan would their music (which we’re sure Planet TV is a part of) and said that Soundcity had never done anything for them
The TV Station in question fired back by saying…
“We have assisted the #PSquare brand, toured with them over Africa at our expense. Gave them ad-spots for their events / projects. Gave them prime time slots for their videos and included them in our array of Programmes / programming.
We invited #PSquare to one of our annual events last December 2014 and they insisted we pay a certain amount of money. We reasonably asked, what is the least we can offer?; this was us foregoing the fact that we had invested a lot in #PSquare’s career as music talents / artistes & entertainers
While we understand that this is business, there is also room for special consideration. Saying our TV brand has never done anything for #PSquare was quite damning. Clearly, there was no need to argue with their decision and reasoning. We decided to stop ‘doing anything’ with/for #PSquare, since our 10years of supporting the group meant nothing to them. We assumed our relationship was a mutually beneficial one, but clearly one-sided.
Ultimately, #PSquare music videos stopped airing on @SoundcityTV since January 01, 2015. Soundcity reserves the right to air music videos on our cable / satellite or terrestrial platforms.”
PAW!! PAW! PAW!! Shots fired!! ALL we have to say is Catch all your latest and favourite P-Square music Videos right here on Planet TV, Channel 73 on Go TV…we’ve go you.
