A silent but raging feud is said to be going on for over 10 years between the Peters’ brothers, Sir Shina Peters and his younger brother, Yomi Peters, who returned to the country from his United States base last year.
The 10-year feud, according to sources, is connected to a lady whom Yomi Peters had wanted to marry and the marriage preparation was said to have reached an advanced stage when Yomi got wind of the secret romance between his brother, Sir Shina Peters, and his fiancee.
While Yomi was licking the wounds of the separation, Shina, without any glaring antics, stepped fully into the life of the lady in question and gave her troubled soul the much needed balm. The love affair picked up a roller coaster pace and both enjoyed every bit of the romance before it got sour and they eventually went their separate ways years after the incident.
And in spite the separation, Yomi vowed not to have anything to do with his elder brother again before he relocated to the United States.
Aside this, there are several maltreatments meted to him during his days as back up singer for his brother in the 90s by his brothers, a source said. The source said Yomi cannot forget in a hurry how his blood brother accused him of armed robbery, an allegation that was described as false but which led to his arrest. It was, however, found to be false.
A source close to the brothers said that the plot by Shina to dock his younger brother was because Yomi Peters opted out of his band to form his own. But that was not the only issue, it was learnt. The animosity between Shina and Yomi Peters is said to be growing by the day.
