Peruzzi recounted how hard it was for him to believe that his distant cousin Chioma was dating Davido, as he talked about how his relationship with the DMW boss began.
According to the Peruzzi, he first got news of Chioma dating Davido after his mother’s burial which was also when he noticed that Davido was always supporting his songs and brand on his social media platform.
He said, “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
“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
“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.”
On how he felt after he was insulted for wearing Davido’s clothes, Peruzzi Said;
“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.”
He also talked about selling his car to buy some drugs for his ailing mother before she died, and completing his degree in medicine and surgery;
“When we realised my mother was
diagnosed with cancer; I had to put
my car on auction immediately. I
wanted to quickly send money to
people to help me get the drugs she
needed. I could only get the drugs
from India but they still didn’t work.
I still see myself going back to
complete my degree in medicine
and surgery but I don’t see myself
sitting in the hospital.”
