Nigerian musician, Tobechukwu Okoh, popularly known as Peruzzi, has cleared the air on viral speculations that he wrote songs for his colleague in the industry, Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu, known professionally as Burna Boy.
Fans had speculated that one of Burna Boy’s hits was written by Peruzzi.
The rumors spread after the latter bragged on social media about writing over 252 songs for the Nigerian music industry.
Some of Perruzi’s fans and followers on social media had repeatedly criticized Burna for allegedly using heavy songwriting, while his fans praised him for his lyrical prowess and called them “lost children.”
However, in response to the ongoing controversies, Peruzzi took to X (formerly Twitter) to ask his fans not to praise him for what he didn’t do.
“Don’t give me credit for what I didn’t do,” Peruzzi wrote on the microblogging platform.
I Regret Rejecting Wizkid’s Offer to Join Rapper Phenom Record Label
Meanwhile, Nigerian hip-hop artiste, Phenom, has expressed regret for not accepting a recording contract from Grammy award-winning singer and CEO of Starboy Entertainment, Wizkid years ago.
The ‘Man Dem’ crooner disclosed that at the peak of his career, he received offers from Wizkid, Olamide and others to join their record labels but he declined as he was loyal to his record label, Knight House.
Phenom announced this during the latest episode of the General Terms and Conditions podcast.
He lamented that his career would have taken a more positive trajectory had he accepted to join Wizkid’s label.
He said, “He (Wizkid) approached me at one point. We had great chemistry. He said he wanted me on his team. He said he and I wanted to work on my album. But I had a label. I’m so loyal. And I remember asking my mom what’s on the floor and my mom said, ‘No. You signed with these people, finish your contract with them.” That’s it, mehn.
“Even Wizkid’s deal was not as pleasant as many others I don’t know. Me and Olamide also had a conversation. But many other guys also approached me. I once had a N100 million deal with a G-wagon. I had crazy deals.

“The only thing I regret is the fact that I was in a fast life at the time, so I could have crashed. So I see it as a blessing too, because I don’t know what would have happened. But when I look at it I think, ‘Damn! I should have accepted Wizkid’s deal.”
