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 PortHarcourt from Bayelsa, next thing I heard was, come down here, then I felt heavy hand pull me down.
All I could hear was, are you AYE(cult), I could not respond because I was lost in thought. What is happening I said to myself. Then this guy dragged me where Peruzzi was standing. Ohh, it’s you, I said to myself.
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.
– Pamilerin narrated the story
Pemilerin had made a comparison tweet on the 6th of January, 2019 before the Headies Award. Pamilerin asked Peruzzi not to compare himself with Teni who has put in a lot of work and deserved to be given her moment and credit.
