A storm of mixed reactions by Nigerians has greeted Peruzzi’s rant for being snubbed by Soundcity, organizers of Soundcity MVP Awards Festival.
Naija News reports that the 2018 Soundcity MVP Awards Festival held over the weekend with Teniola emerging as the “Best New Artiste” of the year.
“Personally I’d say I worked the hardest last year than any other new act, same way I made more money last year than any other new act in the country. There’s a way I see myself, it’s MY race, theres a way I’m running it. Focus on yours. Facts over hype. It’s really simple,” he wrote.
In another tweet, the DMW act stated that he is ready to work harder in 2019, tweeting: “Na to sing shege this year be that.”
Moments after the singer made the post, Nigerians to Twitter to air their opinions on the matter, with many saying Teniola deserved the award.

You're entitled to your King mindset Peruzzi, and the opinion that you deserved the award more than Teni. But by talking about it on SM, by default you gave people the go ahead to tell you that your perception and opinion is infact NOT reality. It's Teni's time. Yours will come. https://t.co/tkYVh2P7Gy

Peruzzi is good, no doubt but Davido's influence and that mad "Amaka" collabo with Tuface pushed him to limelight.
Teni started from the bottom with no help, no collaboration, just regular freestyle skits on Instagram… and BOOM baby is on top.
So what is your MCM saying 🙄 ?

Love Peruzzi, but did he make any solo songs in 2018? Great features, but I think Zlatan gave more to the industry than him last year. And Teni was miles ahead of both of them. Where are the complaints from?

Teni has dropped more than 5 hits with zero collaborations.. Peruzzi can't even snap selfie without davido in it and he's complaining he was cheated. 😒😒
