Rum and Boggie album creator, Peruzzi has said even back then when he was struggling to hit the limelight with no drip etched to his personality, he wore no fake products.
“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.,” the DMW signee said proudly.
On how he met Davido and his relationship with God, having started off singing in the church, Peruzzi said;
“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’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.”
