Nigerian singer, Tobechukwu ‘Peruzzi‘ Okoh narrates his first-ever encounter with popular Afrobeat singer, Davido who signed him to his music label.
The singer made this known in an interview on Nancy Isime’s show. According to Peruzzi, it was a decision of courage as his manager encouraged him to man up and try their luck.
Lo and behold, on getting to Davido, he humbly reached out his hand to Peruzzi for a handshake despite the tension of what to meet.
In his words;
It was really difficult to meet him. It was just me, my manager and my friend. So my manager just said come, lets’ go and try. So he told my guy to wait so we won’t be too many Niggas there.
So I started going small small making sure I don’t step on anyone before they slap me. When I got to two people before David, I just rose my head up and then he looked at me and just stretched his hand. Broda, if you see the way I grabbed that hand… Yes! Yes, My Guy,” he said.
