On Thursday, pop Davido superstar announced the signing of a new artiste on to his DMW label. Peruzzi had collaborated with Davido on his ‘For Your Pocket’ single and would join the likes of Mayorkun and Dremo– both of whom have had respectable success on the record label.
However, the signing of what appears to be a legal document looks suspicious for one major reason: the Sheet of paper in front of Peruzzi is blank.
A close look at the scene would show clearly that this was a photo-op and nothing was actually signed.
Staged signings like this are not new, or peculiar to Nigerian entertainment: premier league star Daniel Sturridge was once busted while signing a new deal with his club-side Liverpool FC. The document in front of him was- you guessed it, blank.
However, this is not to say that Peruzzi is not in fact signed to DMW; it’s just an example of how many more i’s need to be dotted.
