Peruzzi, a Nigerian singer who burst into the limelight under the umbrella of Davido’s DMW label, has been accused of breaching his contract with Golden Boy Entertainment.
Peruzzi’s contract with GBE precedes the deal he has with DMW and Patrick Anyaene, CEO of GBE, expects a return on his investments.
“I don’t have problems with Davido. I have issues with Perruzi, my artiste,” Anyaene said in an interview with PUNCH.
“All the songs Davido released since last year November are my records. They are my records because those songs were written by my artiste.”
Peruzzi has enjoyed commercial success in the past few months with features on DMW group songs like ‘Mind’ and ‘Aje’, and songwriting credits to Davido’s ‘FIA’.
“Songs like ‘FIA’, ‘Ada’, ‘Mind’ by DMW, ‘Aje’ by DMW and other songs they might be working on now are all the property of Golden Boy Entertainment,” Anyaene claims.
“Peruzzi has been going for shows and getting paid; I have been patient with them since November. I am unhappy because I have not been settled. As a businessman, when you invest money in an individual, you expect a return.
“Davido has given Peruzzi some guts to do whatever he likes; he has forgotten that he signed a contract with me and I have lawyers on the case.
“Perruzi started working with me in 2016 and I was paying him salary. I officially signed him in 2017 for a three-year contract. He has breached a contract and he is an ingrate.”
