Nigerian singer, Peruzzi has gone on a Twitter rant, after Teni won the “best newcomer” at the just-concluded Soundcity MVP awards.
The DMW singer has declared that he worked harder than any new artiste in 2018, and also made more income than any other artiste in his category last year, 2018.
Peruzzi took to Twitter to post a now-deleted tweet on who the best new artiste should be.
“Personally I’d say I worked the hardest last year than any other new act, same way I made more money last year than any other new act in the country.
“There’s a way I see myself, it’s my race, there’s a way I’m running it. Focus on yours. Facts over hype. It’s really simple.”
In 2018, Peruzzi was featured in several hit songs by top artistes such as 2baba Idibia, Duncan Mighty, Ice Prince, Davido and the DMW crew.
Despite his successful run as a featured artiste, he failed to land a standout solo major hit, when compared to Teni The Entertainer.
Teni beat Peruzzi, Odunsi The Engine, King Promise, Kwesi Arthur, Kida Kudz, Shane Eagle, Sho Madjozi and Mbosso to win the Soundcity MVP award.
She released a number of solo hit songs in 2018, including ‘Askamaya’, ‘Case’ and ‘Uyo Meyo’.
