Nigerian musician and DMW act, Peruzzi, has been receiving a lot of backlash after popular social media influencer, Pamilerin Adegoke accused the singer of slapping and assaulting him for over 20 minutes.
Earlier this year, Peruzzi took to Twitter to rant about how he had a better year than Teni after she won the Soundcity MVP “Best New Act” over him.
This sparked an online conversation which saw popular Twitter user and social media influencer Pamilerin posted a series of tweets about the trending topic in January of 2019.
Fast forward to June of 2019, Peruzzi who is yet to drop a solo visual or score a 2019 hit song reportedly assaulted Pamilerin after a show in the capital of Bayelsa state. According to multiple sources, the DMW affiliated act told his security to hold the social media star, while he repeatedly struck and assaulted him, over his personal opinion on Twitter.
