How Peruzzi Lost N400k Davido Sent Him For Dubai Trip To A Taxi Driver.
Nigerian singer, songwriter and performing artiste, Tobechukwu Victor Okoh, popularly known as Peruzzi, has narrated how he lost 400k Davido sent him for a Dubai trip to a taxi driver. He disclosed this in an interview with Chude Jideonnwo. According to the singer, Davido asked for an account so money could be sent to him to aid his Dubai trip.
Peruzzi admitted that he made a mistake when he sent the account number of an Uber driver he patronised because he didn’t have one at the time. He added that after receiving the flight ticket money, the Uber driver turned off his phone and fled.
In his words:
“So he just told me 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 okay that he would call somebody,” Peruzzi said.
“I got the passport the next day. Then he said ‘send your account for ticket’. Me, a very useless guy at that time. I didn’t have an account, I was using different accounts. The account I copied was the Uber guy that carried me.
“Omo, Uber guy switched off his phone after collecting 400k. I screamed. 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.
“David just asked me, ‘have you gotten your ticket?’ I told him what happened. He told me to send another account. I did. He said to resend and reposted it. I got the ticket and met him in Dubai. Next, we’re on a flight to Lebanon.”
