Peruzzi also has some words to those who have been abusing him on his Twitter handle since the incident spread in the social media:
“People come on here to say things just to get RTs and Likes. But you never get to really understand cos you’re on the “funny” end of the whole thing. Someone else is somewhere feeling hurt because you don’t see that very thin line between Opinion and Insult”.
It was an opinion expressed by Pamilerin, known as ‘Dr Pam Pam, Omo Iya Ologi on Twitter, that led to the assault.
Peruzzi had complained that he ought to have won the Best New Artiste Award at the 2018 Soundcity MVP Awards given to upcoming Teni.
Pamilerin fired back by saying the singer did not deserve it. The bad blood was created from here.
