REVEALED: Psquare's Mum Died Few Hours After Heart Surgery In India

Peter, Paul and Jude
The Nigeria entertainment circle and fans of Psquare (Peter and Paul Okoye) are still in shock over the sudden death of  Psquare's mum Mrs. Josephine Okoye. The late mother of the Okoye's had been ill for some time, and was operated on in an Indian hospital a few hours before she gave up the ghost last night.

According to NET, she passed away about five hours after undergoing heart surgery.

A statement from Psquare’s publicist says
 ‘Josephine Okoye, who had battled with prolonged illness, passed away in an Indian hospital in Kolkata, last night July 11, 2012 at 11PM.’
Speaking to NET at his residence, Peter Okoye said their late mother suffered from diabetes.
We’re told she had earlier been admitted to St. Nicholas hospital in Lagos, but was flown out of the country when her condition worsened.

The atmosphere at Squareville, the Omole Phase 1 home of the Okoye brothers – Peter, Paul and Jude, was somber, less than a day after the news broke.

Friends and colleagues of the award-winning singers have been visiting the house to commiserate with the family.

A condolence register has been opened, and some of those who paid early visits include their album marketer, T-Joe, producers Flip Tyce and Samklef and TV host Helen Paul-Bamisile.
While Peter Okoye opened up his doors to speak with NET, Paul was not seen anywhere in the vicinity.

‘You know that she was a prayer warrior, so I don’t need to tell you how she stood by us spiritually. Besides, she was the only one that believed in us when we decided to make a career out of music.
I can remember that she used to sneak us out at night then to attend shows without the consent of our father who insisted that we must quit music to face our education’, Peter recounts.

She is survived by her Jos based husband, her children Ifeanyi, Henry, Jude, Lilian, Tony, Peter, Paul and Mary, as well as her grand-children, including Cameron, Peter’s son.

  5. With the increasing number of hospitals and healthcare centres, India has become one of the popular medical tourist destination. With highly expanding infrastructure, lower medical expenses, and world class standards, India are providing different kind of health care services. The availability of high standard medical services at a very low price, is attracting a number of foreign citizens.

    Hospitals in India are home to few of the most well known heart surgeons and consultants in the world. Due to large population in India, the experience of these heart surgeons is enormous. Most of the successful heart surgeons perform 2-3 or more heart surgeries per working day whereas his counterpart in US / Europe would normally do just one.

    Medical Tourism is a modern concept that has acquired much recognition in the past one decade. It basically means tourists of foreign countries visiting other nations for availing their medical facilities, while also enjoying the culture and sightseeing.
