As the DMW team welcomes Davido’s new baby boy and Peruzzi’s ‘sunshine’. Ediale Kingsley has questioned the Majesty hit-maker after a recent concert in Civic Center, Lagos.
On the arrival of the new baby, Peruzzi explained the natural joy it brings to the team and the extended happiness for Davido and Chioma. In Peruzzi’s words, ‘babies bring joy’ and he wished his label boss more happiness. He said, “Children is always like blessings anyways. I feel like every child is a blessing. This is like one in a million. This is David’s first son so it’s a big deal to not just David but to everybody. Everybody that’s part of the family. Chioma and everyone”
But it was the question about the headies that triggered a shocking response. Ediale asked what he felt about being ignored by the Headies platform despite having a smashing hit in the year under review.
He responded that he doesn’t work for the headies. And so long he is one of the best music writers around the headies award doesn’t bother him.
This is what he said:
“I don’t work with the Headies, so I don’t know…I can say boldly that my career is on a very solid level right now. I am one of the best songwriters in Nigeria… So I feel like I am good to go. So I don’t know about all those Headies or awards or anything”
As you may already know, Peruzzi and Davido recently teamed up on a brand new song titled
“Sunshine”. The romantic love song follows a back to back release campaign that saw him drop the ‘Only One‘ song, in less than 10 days ago.
The incessant releases are geared towards the launch of his forthcoming album titled ‘Huncho Vibe‘.

You can recall the situation that ensued back in 2018’s edition of the Sound City MPV Awards had favored Teni over Peruzzi. Peruzzi had taken to his Twitter handle to announce his displeasure at losing out on the ‘Best New Artiste’ category which was won by Teni.
Then he had tweeted, “Personally, I’d say I worked the hardest last year than any other new act, the 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”.
Back then, it was a category that had 10 artists contesting for the “voter’s based” award. And Peruzzi who had a lot of amazing collabos that year did feel he was best for the award. There were many who thought Teni was well deserving of the award as the story had provoked a lot of opinion piece back. With most entertainment journalists appreciating Peruzzi’s hard work but giving the nod to Teni who had an amazing run that year.
Peruzzi had deleted the tweet back then after it went viral and trended.
