Nigerian musician, Tobechukwu Okoh, popularly known as Peruzzi, has cleared the air about viral speculations that he wrote songs for his colleague in the industry, Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu, professionally known as Burna Boy.
There had been speculations by fans that one of Burna Boy’s hit songs was written by Peruzzi.
The rumours spread after the latter took to social media to boast about writing over 252 songs for the Nigerian music industry.
Some of Perruzi’s fans and social media followers had repeatedly criticized Burna for allegedly using many songwriters, while his fans hailed him for his lyrical prowess, referring to them as “lost children.”
Responding, however, to the lingering controversies, Peruzzi took to his handle on X (formerly Twitter) to ask his fans not to praise him for what he did not do.
“Don’t give me credit for what I didn’t do,” Peruzzi wrote on the microblogging platform.
I Regret Turning Down Wizkid’s Offer To Join Record Label – Rapper Phenom
Meanwhile, Nigerian hip-hop artiste, Phenom, has expressed regrets for not accepting a record deal from Grammy award-winning singer cum’ CEO of Starboy Entertainment, Wizkid, years back.
The ‘Man Dem’ crooner disclosed that he received offers from Wizkid, Olamide and others to join their record labels at the peak of his career, but he declined because he was loyal to his record label, Knight House.
Phenom disclosed this during the latest episode of the Terms and Conditions podcast.
He lamented that his career would have taken a more positive trajectory if he had accepted to join Wizkid’s label.
He said, “He [Wizkid] approached me at some point. We had this great chemistry. He said he wanted me on his team. He said wanted him and me to work on my album. But I was with a label. I’m that loyal. And I remember I ask my mum that’s what’s on ground and my mum was like, ‘No. You signed with this people, finish your contract with them.’ That was what it was, mehn.
“Even Wizkid’s deal was not as pleasant as many other that I don’t know. Me and Olamide had a conversation as well. But a lot of other guys approached me too. I had a deal of N100 million with a G-waggon at some point. I had the crazy deals.
“The only regret I do have was the fact that I was under fast life at that time so I could have crashed. So, I see it as a blessing as well because I don’t know what would have happened. But when I look at it, I’m like, ‘Damn! I should have taken that Wizkid’s deal.”
