Peruzzi, Nigerian singer, says he believes in God but has not been to church in four years — and after meeting Davido.
The songwriter was speaking of his relationship with the Afropop star in his feature on Joey Akan’s ‘Afrobeats Intelligence’.
Peruzzi recounted his outset as a church keyboardist and his days of being in the choir saying: “Yeah, Assemblies Of God. Choir, play keyboard, that P. At Assemblies of God, Acappella. If you’re not playing instruments, acapella.
“If you’re playing instruments, it has to be the full thing. Everybody is singing; backing up, harmonizing.
“Treble, alto, tenor, bass. Everybody is doing everything. I learnt to harmonize everything, I learnt to make music sweet. So that was where it (melodies) came from. Childhood experience is the foundation of my whole life.
“I haven’t gone to church since I met David. I haven’t been to church in like four years. But yeah, I believe in God.
“…I’ve always seen myself as a star before I met anybody in this industry, I used to act like ‘people are watching me.’ I didn’t have no drip, but I’d make sure that I’m not wearing any fake Gucci, I’m not wearing any fake Versace.
“I’m wearing plain white shirt. I had my way that I’m going to be something. I didn’t know how, but I knew, ‘guy, I’m going to be something.’ I was already acting like I was. When David met me, I was branding myself already.
“He knew there was a wave. It’s been like that because I always felt like if you know you want to get somewhere, just start preparing yourself for it. [It] wasn’t really fake-fake, ’cause I didn’t rock no fake sh*t. But I faked being a star.”
On his lifestyle projections, Peruzzi, whose real name is Tobechukwu Victor Okoh, said he plans to settle down in Malibu, California.
The 31-year-old hitmaker also pointed out that he can’t possibly continue singing all his life.
