Entry into the Spotlight

On the 16th of November 2017, he got himself a recording contract with Davido Music Worldwide (DMW), which we can say is a massive step in the right direction.
According to Peruzzi, he says no one got him connected to Davido; he simply took a courageous leap.
This was what he told hipTV: “Nobody connected me to David. He played my song on his Snapchat last year.
“I awoke one day to a lot of messages to go and check Davido’s snap that ‘he’s playing your song.’ I went there and saw my name on a post he made. “He was on tour at the time, so I chilled for him to get back. When he got back, I linked up with him at the club the night he got back after his US tour. “And then I found my way to him and immediately I met David, the first thing he said to me was ‘I play your song every day in my car,’ and he said ‘come to the house tomorrow’ and that was it. “I did not have to pay David any money. We met, and then he liked my vibe, and that was it.”
Since, he got signed into DMW AKA “30 billion gangs” he has done so much for himself, creating lovely hit tracks such as Tatashe and featuring the 2018 finest album, Tuface’s Amaka. On the 30th of August, 2018, he collaborated with Davido, Fresh and Duncan Mighty, creating a smashing hit track ”Aza.”

However, in a recent development, his former boss, Golden Boys Entertainment has lamented that any song created by Peruzzi under the DMW Label is illegal and otherwise considered his property. He further stated that Peruzzi signed a recording contract for three years with him which has not expired yet. So he wants to be paid off, or his lawyers will see the issue to devastating fruition.
