After several news report filtered in last year about an alleged sexual relationship between Peruzzi and Chioma before the latter started dating Davido, the ‘Rum & Boogie’ artist has come out to have his say on the matter.
Tobechukwu Victor Okoh, popularly known as Peruzzi, recently spoke about his life and music on the #WithChude show with Chude Jideonwo. Peruzzi addressed several things, especially a relationship-threatening rumour that circulated claiming he had an affair in the past with Chioma Rowland, Davido’s rumoured ex-fiancée.
Speaking on the rumour, the talented singer tagged it as ‘crazy’ and questioned what Davido’s offence was to have people make up such painful allegations.
In his words:
“Someone said I had s*x with the wife of the man who helped me. Do you know how crazy that is? Even if you hate me, what did Davido do to you? So right now, I am careful of every pin that drops near me.”
Besides this, the singer also spoke about the death of his mother who passed on due to cancer just two days after he released his hit single, ‘For your pocket’. Peruzzi explained that amid mourning, having his team handle the song’s publicity afforded him the time to grieve. It was around this period, he caught Davido’s attention.
“I had my time, I used to cry when I was taking my bath. I used to tell myself till tomorrow morning I am going to cry. Whenever I had the time to take a shower I’ll know that’s my time to cry, and as I’m crying the water is washing everything away. Then I’ll come outside again like it was nothing and back to work. So it was in between that period, that was when Davido posted my song on his Snapchat. I didn’t know him before.”
