BEVERLY HILLS, April 12, (THEWILL) – Nigerian musician, Peruzzi, says he lost the money Davido sent to him for his trip abroad to a taxi driver.
The singer disclosed this during a chat with popular media personality, Chude Jideonwo.
According to him, Davido had asked him to come to Dubai as it was the first time they were going to be seeing.
He disclosed how Davido requested for an account so that the money could be transferred for him to make the necessary arrangements for his trip to Dubai; then he made a mistake.
Peruzzi narrated: “So he told me that I should come to Dubai. Because when he called me I was in the room doing nothing. He asked, ‘Do you have a passport?’ I said I don’t have a passport and he was okay that he would call somebody.
“Then I got the passport the next day. Then he said, ‘Send your account for a ticket.’ Me very useless guy at that time I didn’t have any account, I was using different accounts. The account number I copied was the Uber guy that carried me. Omo Uber guy switched off his phone after collecting 400k.
“I was like my ticket money is gone! I was looking for the Uber guy on Facebook. I went crazy. I went to Uber’s office and they said they had stopped the guy from working like a month ago. I was like where will I see 400k? What will I tell this guy that I just met? He would think that I have spent the money.”
He recounted how he told Davido at last what happened and how he sent the ticket money again.
According to the singer, his meeting with Davido was the beginning of his road to stardom.
