A record producer who claims to have helped Peruzzi go back to medical school and signed him to his record label, has accused the singer of betrayal and narrated how this happened.
According to King Patrick, the record producer behind Golden Boy Entertainment, he met Peruzzi in 2014 after he dropped out of medical school because of his father’s financial problems.
He also claimed that he paid for Peruzzi to go back to school.
“I paid for his ticket and visa, he was like a brother to me.” he said
However, he noticed the artist was more interested in his musical career than in his studies so he set him up in the entertainment industry.
He wrote: “He was more interested in music, so my investment in his education was a failed project but I still decided to support his music career. I clothed him, fed him and gave him allowances, I also made sure he had comfortable accommodation.
“I had another artist called “BONDO KRAZZY” who peruzzi moved in with. There he worked on his music, while waiting for me to sign him by November 2016, as I had promised.”
He said he eventually signed Peruzzi and they moved to Lagos. He allegedly got him a 5-bedroom accommodation in Lagos then shot 3 music videos for him.
According to King Patrick, only one of the videos was released and it caught Davido’s attention.
This is where problem started as Peruzzi allegedly signed with Davido’s DMW without telling Patrick and without respect for the contract he already signed with Patrick.
Patrick wrote: “I bought Peruzzi’s ticket to meet Davido for the performance, but instead of performing he got signed to DMW, without my consent, therefore breaching his contract.
“I woke up to the news of the signing and I was mad and that marked the beginning of my depression. If only you know how it feels to be cheated by someone you truly loved and supported with all your heart.”
Patrick, who tagged his thread #SurvivingPeruzzi, said the case is currently being delayed in court. He alleged that Peruzzi has even threatened to kill him.
He said all he wants is the royalties and credit that Peruzzi and Davido owe him. He added that Peruzzi’s action has left him depressed.
He went on to share an audio recording of Peruzzi screaming at him, saying that what he owes him is “chicken change”. He also shared screenshots of his conversation with Davido.
He concluded his thread, writing: “I have been patient for 2 Years and @davido or @Peruzzi_VIBES have refused to pay me despite all my efforts. I had to bring this issue here because e Don reach. Peruzzi needs to be exposed! It’s been a depressing 2 years! And I can’t hold it in any longer #SurvivingPeruzzi.
“@Davido knew peruzzi was signed to Goldenboy yet he went ahead to “Audio Sign” Peruzzi without following due process. I reached out to him, look what a so called boss had to say in my dm. Fact: @Peruzzi_VIBES is not Signed to DMW.”
Below are Patrick’s tweets and the audio recording of Peruzzi threatening him.
