Death, and life – at the same time. I think your mother would be incredibly proud of your strength and success, Peruzzi.
This is the story of how Davido invited Peruzzi to Dubai for the first time – and how Peruzzi lost the 400,000 ticket money to an Uber driver.
What’s fascinating though is what Davido did next.
“E be like Nollywood,” Peruzzi tells me, as he watches his life change.
The pain of losing a mother!
“My mum was my best friend, I’m the only son, last born, I lost my mum to cancer.
“It was a busy period for me when it happened, I just dropped ‘For your pocket’ (and) 2 days after my mum dies.
“It was like me taking the time to cry in my house, trying to hide from my guys because we were already tweeting ‘For your pocket is out now’. I didn’t want them to stop tweeting so after some time I tried very well to tell them ‘Allow, me when it’s time to cry I’ll cry very well but please let’s not stop sharing the song let’s continue’.
“ 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 when Davido posted my song on his Snapchat. I didn’t know him before.”
