Social media influencer, Pamilerin, has accused DMW singer, Peruzzi, of assaulting him in Bayelsa State over posts he made on social media earlier this year.
Pamilerin had taken to Twitter to compare Peruzzi and Teni back in January after Teni won Peruzzi at the Headies Awards for the Next Rated Artiste.
See narration from Pamilerin below.
‘What did I go to Bayelsa for, I had no idea I was going to come back to Lagos with a mini swollen eyes, all thanks to your fav for blessing me with that.
I would have stayed in my Lagos and enjoy the traffic in peace.
After the event it was time to go back to Lagos and face traffic, I got into the bus that was taking us to Port Harcourt from Bayelsa, next thing I heard was, come down here, then I felt heavy hand pull me down.
What is happening I said to myself. Then this guy dragged me where Peruzzi was standing. Ohh, it’s you, I said to myself.
All I could hear was, are you AYE(cult), I could not respond because I was lost in thought.
Next thing, your super star Peruzzi pulled me up with the help of his bouncer holding my hands, the next thing I heard was boom.
Is that from THOR I said to myself. He started screaming, don’t you ever tweet about me again, you are mad, who do you think you are.
This continued to about 20 minutes, everyone around was shocked and dumbfounded, he said how on earth will I compare him with Teni ????He said he does not care, but this is you abusing me after 6 months.
Bearing in mind that I tweeted on the 6th January, 2019.
When the whole comparison between himself and Teni surfaced online.
I simply asked our gentleman not to compare himself that Teni has put in lot of work, so she deserved to be given her moment and credit.
Many have however been reacting to the alleged assault. One social media user stated;
The act by the singer is not only an assault on Pamilerin Adegoke alone but also on all social media influencers which includes bloggers as well.
Peruzzi has kick-started a dangerous trend where Nigerians would be getting beaten for airing their opinion on social media.
His likes should be banned from social media platforms.
He must also face the law for his actions which he’s yet to deny.
