Nigerian singer and songwriter, Peruzzi is the latest singer to be accused of rape.
In a series of tweets, the young lady identified as Princess inspired by Daffy Blanco who once accused the singer of raping her narrated how Peruzzi raped her in 2012. According to her, she accompanied a friend named Aisha who seems to be romantically involved with him at that time to his house. She said they spent the night at his place but Peruzzi came to her and had his way with her even when she refused.
Princess said she was too naive at that time to go for a test and couldn’t speak out because she was scared and her parents weren’t aware that she was Lagos where it had happened.
For so long I’ve kept this to myself but I have decided to speak out due to the boldness of Daffy Blanco & other rape victims. Let’s expose these rapist for who they are, they have no right to take advantage of us. #SayNoToRape #SayNoToRapist #SurvivingPeruzzi.So one time in 2012, I can’t really remember the date and the month But I accompanied a friend “Aisha” to 1004. And as at then, I think she had a thing with Peruzzi, I accompanied her there, we spent a night that day and I happened to stay in the same room with Aisha and Peruzzi
In the night, he started touching me without my consent, I tried to tell him that that’s wrong and besides he has a girlfriend lying in between. So I left the room and went to sleep in the mini parlour upstairs, I had to leave the room because I wasn’t comfortable anymore. I tried to tapping my friend to wake up so she’d understand what was going on but she was too fast asleep. So then I went to the parlour, and he came out and I had to tell him to leave if not I was going to create a scene..
He obliged and went back to the room and for some time he didn’t come out again. I left the parlour upstairs and went downstairs to the main parlour so I could sleep on the chair, I couldn’t sleep in the other rooms cos it was occupied with his other friends he had over. When I was already fast asleep, thinking he was just making advances and all, me saying “NO” maybe he got the message. Being deep asleep and I felt someone trying to unbuckle my pants and then I woke up
And I’m like “YOU CAN’T DO THAT IT’S WRONG” that is when we started struggling and he was “PRESSING ON MY NECK” Telling me I should chill and likes me, all this kind of shit and I’m like .Yo! “I’M NOT INTERESTED” At that point struggling was very stressful, you know he tore my PANT and then he did what he did, He raped me. I was too naive to know that I was meant to go for test, i was too scared of going to the police because as at then my parents didn’t know I was in Lagos so I was scared to come out with the news
and ithe whole story of him raping me.
I’ve kept this inside me for over 8 years now and I finally feel a bit of relief speaking out. I hope my story would encourage more suppressed rape victims to speaker out, no matter the situation you find yourself no one has any right to rape you!
