The award-winning duo celebrated their 35th birthday on November 18 with very close friends and relatives.

Excited about the double-edge blessing, they took to their various Instagram accounts to share pictures of the memorable event.

One half of the duo, Peter posted “#aboutlastnight Chilaxing with my Oga #Blessed”.

Paul on the other hand also posted “Welcome sir about last night ”

2016 was quite a controversial year for the brothers as it saw them at the brink of extinction as a group.

The feud led to them taking a break as “Psquare”, a move that made headlines for months and brewed mixed reactions among fans and music lovers.

This recent news serves as an icebreaker and evidence they are back together.

In September, they released a new track titled “Bank Alert” which quickly went viral especially with the release of the video which featured Nollywood actor and comedian, Mr. Ibu, and veteran singer and actress, Onyeka Owenu.

Zimbabwean Singer Gonyeti Launches Debut Album

 Pamela Zulu, popularly known as Gonyeti, hogged the limelight following her sexual abuse claims against high riding contemporary musician – Jah Prayzah.

Pamela Zulu: “I was once a ‘soldier’ and now I am a ‘war vet’ so this is very pleasing to me as an artiste to have crossed that path and conquered the battlefield”

The six-track album was produced at KBN Studios and has songs that include “One Day”, “Bhande” and “Chioneone”, which Gonyeti feels are the best.

“‘One Day’ is a good track and it is the first one I have introduced to the people so it is very familiar. However, listening to the whole album after recording, I feel ‘Bhande and ‘Chioneone’ are likely to surpass ‘One Day’ in terms of popularity,” said Gonyeti.

Gonyeti is ecstatic about her progress as a solo artiste since she left Jah Prayzah’s band and says the album is likely to create a new fan base.

“I was once a ‘soldier’ and now I am a ‘war vet’ so this is very pleasing to me as an artiste to have crossed that path and conquered the battlefield,” she said.

She was referring to her switch from Third Generation that is known as a group of “soldiers” to the brand “war vet” that she has assumed. Despite the cold war that followed her departure, Gonyeti says they are now in good books with Jah Prayzah.

She has invited Jah Prayzah, Diana Samkange and Sulumani Chimbetu to be guest performers at the launch.

“For the sake of progress and business, we have decided to put our differences aside and let go of our past.”
