Today Peruzzi is known as an artiste of some renown. It wasn’t always this way and it’s thanks in large part to Davido’s contribution.
Peruzzi, who’s distant cousin also happens to be Chioma, Davido’s girlfriend, sat down for an interview and there he explained how he felt after finding out that his cousin was dating the famous Davido.
“After my mother’s burial; I was going home and someone sent me a message on Twitter, commending my song. The person asked if I remembered her. After she explained who she was, I remembered her. She told me Davido sent my song to her. I didn’t believe it. She further told me that they were dating and she is like my distant cousin, so I didn’t even see it coming.
“I felt like how can she be dating Davido and I wouldn’t know since. She was able to convince me after she sent me some pictures; she told me he was going to be around the next day. She invited me to his welcome party and I went there around 2 am at Club 57.
“Once Davido entered with his entourage, I was scared. He was facing me, but I didn’t know what to do. I moved to see him carefully. He looked at me and called my name. I was happy and I held him. He told me he loved my songs and that I should come to his house. That was the best night of my life. I sent Chioma a text; that I was with him.
“I couldn’t sleep that night because I was too excited. She (Chioma) is my mother’s cousin’s daughter. But she is my cousin; that is how we refer to each other. I don’t have a proper contract with Davido; he is my guy so I am not worried about that. Some people have lived with him for years without any contract.”
Peruzzi has been in his fair share of controversies including beating up an influencer and also for one time wearing clothes he obtained from Davido.
He was asked about how he felt when Nigerians called him out on it and he answered that he doesn’t let it bother him
“How would you see something you like and you can’t tell your male friend that you like it? I told him I liked an outfit and he gave it to me. I have come to realise that no matter what I do, people would talk. I don’t let it get to me.”
