DMW singer, Peruzzi, has been accused of assault by social media influencer, Pamilerin.
According to Pamilerin, the assault took place in Bayelsa State over posts he had made on social media earlier in the year.
The social media influencer had taken to Twitter to compare Peruzzi and Teni after the latter beat Peruzzi alongside other artists to win the Next Rated Artiste at the Headies Awards.
Pamilerin’s narration reads:
”What did I go to Bayelsa for, I had no idea I was going to come back to Lagos with a mini swollen eye, all thanks to your fav for blessing me with that. I would have stayed in my Lagos and enjoy the traffic in peace. After the event it was time to go back to Lagos and face traffic, I got into the bus that was taking us to Port Harcourt from Bayelsa, next thing I heard was, come down here, then I felt heavy hand pull me down.
”All I could hear was, are you AYE(cult), I could not respond because I was lost in thought. What is happening I said to myself. Then this guy dragged me where Peruzzi was standing. Ohh, it’s you, I said to myself. Next thing, your superstar Peruzzi pulled me up with the help of his bouncer holding my hands, the next thing I heard was boom. Is that from THOR I said to myself. He started screaming, don’t you ever tweet about me again, you are mad, who do you think you are.
”This continued to about 20 minutes, everyone around was shocked and dumbfounded, he said how on earth will I compare him with Teni ???? He said he does not care, but this is you abusing me after 6 months. Bearing in mind that I tweeted on the 6th of January 2019. When the whole comparison between himself and Teni surfaced online. I simply asked our gentleman not to compare himself that Teni has put in a lot of work, so she deserved to be given her moment and credit.”
Many have however been reacting to the alleged assault. One social media user stated;
”The act by the singer is not only an assault on Pamilerin Adegoke alone but also on all social media influencers which include bloggers as well. Peruzzi has kick-started a dangerous trend where Nigerians would be getting beaten for airing their opinion on social media. His likes should be banned from social media platforms. He must also face the law for his actions which he’s yet to deny.”
Y’all coming for Peruzzi because he slapped your influencer.
Y’all hide behind your keypads to spew trash and degrade people’s work.
Forget Peruzzi the artiste, and think about Peruzzi as someone older than Pamilerin. He was slapped for being disrespectful. pic.twitter.com/iODZ334LaX
