Twitter Influencer Pamilerin Adegoke Accuses Peruzzi Of Assault
A popular Nigerian social media influencer, Pamilerin Adegoke has taken to social media to allege that Nigerian singer, Peruzzi assaulted him in Bayelsa with the aid of his bouncers.
According to Adegoke who shared a photo of a swollen eye he allegedly sustained during the assault, Peruzzi slapped and assaulted him for almost 20 minutes while he (Adegoke) was held down by Peruzzi’s bouncers.
In a series of tweets, Adegoke narrated that the assault stemmed from a January 2019 tweet from him during the comparison phase of Peruzzi and fellow Nigerian singer, Teni the Entertainer.
“What did I go to Bayelsa for, I had no idea I was going to come back to Lagos with mini swollen eyes, 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 PortHarcourt 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 a 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 six months. Bearing in mind that I tweeted on the 6th 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 lot of work, so she deserved to be given her moment and credit.”
It would be recalled that following Teni’s emergence as the “Best New Act” at the Soundcity MVP awards, Peruzzi had shared a tweet that many felt was a shade at the organisers for giving Teni the award that he was also nominated in the same category as he felt he had a better year than her.
Taking to his Twitter page on Sunday, January 6, 2019, he tweeted about being the hardest working new artist in the country. He wrote,
“Personally, I’d say I worked the hardest last year than any other new act, same way I made more money than any other new act in the country. There’s a way I see myself, it’s MY race, there’s a way I’m running it. Focus on yours. Facts over hype. It’s really simple.”
Although Adegoke may have forgotten his tweet from six months ago when he dares Peruzzi to release a hit without getting featured, it appears the singer didn’t and he took the opportunity of attending the opening of media personality, Denrele Edun’s nightclub to get back at Adegoke. With both of them in the same city, getting his ‘revenge’ back on Adegoke for the ‘offensive tweet’ was easy.
