Peruzzi and Davido apologise to Pamilerin over assault kikiotolu

Peruzzi and Davido have apologised to Pamilerin Adegoke for slapping the Twitter influencer yesterday.

Taking to social media, Davido and Peruzzi both penned their apology note to the Twitter influencer.

Twitter has been agog with reactions to the alleged assault on the social media influencer, with some Nigerians taking the side of Adegoke while some fans justified the beating on Adegoke for taking down on Peruzzi’s hustle.

Since the news broke, some have started calling Peruzzi an “Obalende Travis Scott” and “Onitsha Quavo” and yet some others say that Peruzzi’s alleged assault on Adegoke was not enough as he should have had him tied and flogged properly.

The assault allegedly stemmed from Adegoke saying Teni the Entertainer is better than Peruzzi when she snagged Soundcity MVP’s “Best New Act”. Following her win in the category which Peruzzi was also nominated in, he had taken to Twitter to express that he was stil the hardest working and highest earning best new act of 2018. Peruzzi’s tweet had been seen as envy by many Nigerians who slammed him that Teni deserved the award as she had more hits than him.

In a post by an eyewitness, @Vinavina01, Peruzzi allegedly ordered the attack because of Pamilerin’s tweets from January which insinuated that Teni the entertainer was a better artiste than him.

@VinaVina01 wrote: “But I was disappointed today at the callousness of man. This dude @peruzzivibes got his bouncers to hold down @thepamilerin while he dished out the worst slap ever.

“We got to find out later it was over a post he made in January.”

Pamilerin confirmed the attack on Monday by sharing a picture of his red-eye and marks on his face in a series of tweets.

He also tweeted: “The worst happened to me today, but they will be hearing from me shortly and surely. Let’s keep up the energy! #TheresStillFreedomOfExpression #DontForget!”

Davido took to his verified Twitter handle to apologise. He wrote, “I apologize to you @thepamilerin on behalf of my brother and artist @Peruzzi_VIBES. He was wrong for putting his hands on you but people need to realize that we artists are human beings and we see everything! You said some harsh words to my brother and sometimes this thing dey pain!”

Peruzzi wrote, “I did very wrong for (sic) yesterday slapping Mr. Pamilerin. (I) let my feelings get the (better) of me and I’m very sorry. Apologies to Mr Pamilerin and also to the general public. I’d never get into such mess again. Love only, I promise. ❤️”
