Peter Okoye, popularly known as Mr P has been trending on Nigerian social media space as men praise him for fighting for his wife, Lola Omotayo.
It all started when excerpts of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s interview with Oprah Winfrey surfaced on the net and he was commended for standing by his wife despite the British Royal family’s disapproval.
Amid the circulation of the ‘royal interview,’ Nigerian women took to Twitter to berate Nigerian men and laud Harry for his actions.
A lady identified as Chinny B stirred the debate that made Peter a trending topic when she said;
”I just love the way Harry is standing firmly by Meghan.
This, however, did not sit well with men and some women who quickly mentioned that Peter Okoye had done something similar but he was lambasted and underappreciated for it.
One user, @obeyamark wrote; ”Peter Okoye is Igbo. He left even his own twin brother.
Rochas is Igbo. He even got arrested while fighting to reclaim his wife’s property.
With his name maintaining a spot on Twitter trends for hours, Peter took to Twitter to acknowledge the commendation over his decision to fight for what is right.
”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”
