There is fire on the mountain in the camp of Davido Music Worldwide (DMW) as Patrick Anyaene, a record producer and CEO of Golden Boy Entertainment used 17-tweet thread to attempt to wrestle Peruzzi from the hands of the DMW boss, Davido.
Patrick didn’t just share tweets explaining the alleged contract breach of Peruzzi, he also shared a private chat he had with Davido where he attempted to urge the musician to be professional about the existing contract Peruzzi has with the Golden Boy Entertainment.
@Davido knew peruzzi was signed to Goldenboy yet he went ahead to "Audio Sign" Peruzzi without following due process. I reached out to him, look what a so called boss had to say in my dm. Fact: @Peruzzi_VIBES is not Signed to DMW pic.twitter.com/hWh0MReHLa— King Patrick 👑 (@Kingpatrickgb) January 16, 2020
Some of Patrick’s 17-tweet thread
In his 17-tweet thread, Patrick used the hashtag #SurvivingPeruzzi to narrate how he signed Peruzzi, brought him to Lagos, paid for his accommodation and for his music productions before the singer dumped his contract with Golden Boy Entertainment to follow Davido.
He said Davido knew that Peruzzi was signed to Golden Boy yet he went ahead to “Audio Sign” Peruzzi without following due process.
Patrick’s 17-tweet thread read in parts: “While they are delaying this case in court, I have also brought it here for Twitter to see my reward for helping. Be the judge and ask yourself if this is fair.
“I want to make it clear that all I want from this is the Royalties & credit that DAVIDO MUSIC WORLDWIDE owes GOLDEN BOY ENTERTAINMENT, nothing more or less. We signed a contract and that should be respected.
“I met Peruzzi in 2014, then he was out of med school because of his father’s financial problems but I did everything in my power to help him go back to school. I paid for his ticket and visa, he was like a brother to me.
“He was more interested in music, so my investment in his education was a failed project but I still decided to support his music career. I clothed him, fed him and gave him allowances, I also made sure he had comfortable accommodation.
“I had another artist called “BONDO KRAZZY” who Peruzzi moved in with. There he worked on his music while waiting for me to sign him by November 2016, as I had promised.
“When I was ready I signed Peruzzi and we all moved to Lagos, I got a better accommodation for him, a 5 bedroom house in Sangotedo. I also shot 3 videos for him but we released only one (For Your Pocket) which caught the attention of Davido.

“Instead of letting Davido know that he is signed to me, Peruzzi presented me as just the guy that helped him shoot his video.
“Davido was billed to perform at the One Africa Music festival, late 2017. For Your Pocket remix was trending then so he told me wanted to perform it at the show with Peruzzi, which never happened.
“I bought Peruzzi’s ticket to meet Davido for the performance, but instead of performing he got signed to DMW, without my consent, therefore breaching his contract.
“I woke up to the news of the signing and I was mad and that marked the beginning of my depression. If only you know how it feels to be cheated by someone you truly loved and supported with all your heart.
14. Fast forward to 11/2019, Peruzzi set up a fake meeting with me to discuss how to pay back what he owes, instead of having the meeting I was ambushed, he threatened to kill me, saying what he owed me is chicken change but he is still yet to pay.— King Patrick 👑 (@Kingpatrickgb) January 15, 2020

As at the time of publishing this report, Davido or Peruzzi has not made any official statement in reaction to Patrick’s claim.
Fans Reaction on Audio Signing of Peruzzi by Davido
Base on Patrick allegation that the signing of Peruzzi to DMW by Davido was fake, most Twitter users have dug out pictures showing when Davido was purportedly signing the singer. Some of them agreed that the signing was an actual audio signing.
See their reactions here…
It's from this picture you all should have known Peruzzi signing to DMW was audio and fake. How can you be signed on a plain A4 paper with no written agreement. Maybe na only me no see wetin they type Sha. #SurvivingPeruzzi pic.twitter.com/dJseG59RcX— Akokiteconnect (@Akokiteconnect1) January 16, 2020
We tend to forget our roots easily the moment we find a little bit of success. it clouds our thoughts and make us disregard the humble beginnings.— Snr.Olisa 🦁™🏳 (@Puff_Duks) January 16, 2020
Peruzzi should acknowledge what was done for him in the past and set things right with Davido and king Patrick.
Davido said he is helping a brother. Another 'We rise by lifting others' scam.— Da Kulgee ❁ (@iam_kulgee) January 16, 2020
So to rise others you need to pull others down? Golden Boy isn't somebody right? Na only Peruzzi you wan help right?
Do the right thing! I can't support evil no matter who is involved pic.twitter.com/2aENJ4JC2m
Mayorkun’s 20 Songs Dream
Meanwhile, one of the signee to DMW record label, Mayorkun shared an Instagram post with a picture showing him and Davido having a conversation.
In the caption, the singer said what was going on in the picture was that he was reporting DMW to Davido. According to him, the label didn’t allow him to record 20 songs this year. With an emoji illustrating that he was crying accompanied by a love emoji.
However, since the Peruzzi and the Golden Boy drama started, people on Twitter have been using the picture as a meme to illustrate that Mayorkun was asking Davido about what was going on between Peruzzi and his alleged original label, Golden Boy Entertainment.
