Singer Peruzzi has been accused of physically assaulting a social media influencer @thepamilerin.
Instagram user @vinavina01 shared a video and photo, alleging that Peruzzi slapped @thepamilerin over a series of tweets in January.
“Like guys, where did we loose our way? Who gave an artist the right to assault a fellow individual over an opinion that was aired? You call yourself a leader to the younger generation and is this what you preach? And Using threatening words like ‘I’ll kill you’…..’I’ll destroy you’,” @vinavina01 wrote about the incident.

According to The Guardian, @thepamilerin, narrating the incident on Twitter, said:
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.
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.
The tweets credited to @thepamilerin above are no longer on his timeline at the time of reporting, but the influencer posted a cryptic message, saying: “The worst happened to me today, but they will be hearing from me shortly and surely. Let’s keep up the energy!
Peruzzi is yet to comment on the allegations.
