After going AWOL for a minute, Peruzzi is here with a new single, ‘Lagbaja’. This is his first single since fan-favourite jam ‘Gunshot’ which was released earlier this year.
Despite Peruzzi’s enormous undeniable talent and support from one of the biggest labels in the country, DMW, the singer hasn’t exactly had the smoothest sail to stardom. He has been in the mainstream consciousness for a while now but there just seems to be glass ceiling preventing him from breaking even. The most notable obstacle has been the long-drawn battle with his former record label, Golden Boy, who seems bent on getting its pound of flesh. Also in the thick of the lockdown, Peruzzi was accused of sexual harassment which he denied. But not long after, the embattled singer left Twitter altogether.
Prior to this accusation, Peruzzi appeared to be having quite a productive lockdown and he didn’t fail to let us know about it. Pictures of him recoding in makeshift studios flooded social media, particularly an exciting one which saw vocal god, Wande Coal with him recording in the studio. And ever since, fans have been wondering what is in the works.
Well, new music is finally here and fans are already loving it. With a perfect blend of the dated galala sound and Afrobeats Peruzzi addresses detractors, telling them “you can’t spoil my shine.”
Enjoy the single above.
