On the latest episode of #WithChude, sensational Nigerian music artist, Tobechukwu Victor Okoh, popularly known as Peruzzi, opened up to host Chude Jideonwo, about how he was able to give his new single the publicity it needed despite the shocking news of his mother’s death, his unexpected 2baba and Gaaga collaboration, and the unfounded social media speculation about his affair with Choima
Amid mourning his beloved mother who had died just two days after the release of his hit single, ‘For your pocket’, Peruzzi explained to Chude that having his team handle the song’s publicity afforded him the time he needed to grieve.
“I had just dropped ‘For your Pocket’, and then my mum died two days after. I had to take my time to cry but at the same time try to hide from my guys because we were already tweeting about the release of the new song, and I did not want them to stop. After a while, I had to tell them to allow me when it’s time to cry, and I would not disturb them, but whatever they did, they should not stop tweeting about it. I would go into the shower and cry, allow the water to wash away the pain, but once I was out, it was back to work. It was at that time that Davido posted my song on Snapchat, and that gave my career the boost it needed,” he said.
