Peter Okoye came into the mix when a lady took to Twitter to commend Harry for his actions and berated Nigerian men. She claimed that an Igbo man can never put his wife first.
“I just love the way Harry is standing firmly by Meghan. Can never be an Igbo man
Ndi “My mother said I can’t marry from Imo state”.
Some Nigerians disagreed with her claims and used Peter Okoye as a practical example. Recall that the former member of defunct PSquare group stood by his wife, Lola, who happened to be a Yoruba woman, during the clash he had with his brothers and other family members.
Netizens went on to commend and praise Peter for also putting his wife first, in the face of his family dispute. Some opined that his actions at the time were underrated because it was from an African man.
With his name trending on Nigerian Twitter for hours, Peter took to the microblogging platform to acknowledge the commendation for standing up for what is right and protecting his woman.
”So, I see my self trending for Standing Up for what is right! This life eh!…. your own na your own! Protect yours! #MyFamilyFirst #IKnowLikeTrouble”
