- A little known record label owner has accused Davido of stealing his artiste
- Patrick Anyaene, CEO of Golden Boy Entertainment claimed that Peruzzi, the latest signee to DMW is his artiste
- He added that Peruzzi also wrote a number of OBO’s hit songs
The ongoing drama involving popular musician Davido and a little known record label boss named Patrick Anyaene keeps getting more confusing by the day.
NAIJ.com had earlier reported that Patrick Anyaene claimed that Peruzzi, the latest artiste to join Davido’s DMW imprint is still signed to his Golden Boy Entertainment and that he is being treated unfairly.
Speaking in a recent interview, Anyaene said he doesn’t have issues with Davido, but that his problem is with his artiste Peruzzi.
He also claimed that a number of the hit songs like Fia, Ada, Mind by DMW, Aje by DMW were all written by his artiste.
“I don’t have problems with Davido; I have issues with Perruzi, my artiste. All the songs Davido released since last year November are my records. They are my records because those songs were written by my artiste. Songs like Fia, Ada, Mind by DMW, Aje by DMW and other songs they might be working on now are all the property of Golden Boy Entertainment,” he told Punch.
Anyaene added that after having a one-on-one discussion with Davido, they agreed on how he would be settled or rewarded but OBO has not been forthcoming and that Peruzzi is an ingrate.
"Peruzzi has been going for shows and getting paid; I have been patient with them since November. I am unhappy because I have not been settled. As a businessman, when you invest money in an individual, you expect a return.
Davido has given Peruzzi some guts to do whatever he likes; he has forgotten that he signed a contract with me and I have lawyers on the case. Perruzi started working with me in 2016 and I was paying him salary. I officially signed him in 2017 for a three-year contract. He has breached a contract and he is an ingrate.”
The record label boss insisted that he has been cheated and that if Davido wants to take him for granted, he will expose them.
“I am just being tactical about the whole issue; they have cheated me. Though I am aware that Davido always gets away with things, I know how to deal with them. I plan to settle things without attracting any drama, but if Davido wants to take me for granted, I will expose them. For all the songs they have released, I have original copies and I can drop them if I desire to. I also have screenshots of my conversation with Davido that can implicate him.”
