However, Peruzzi was not pleased with the awards as he took to Twitter declaring that he worked harder than any new artiste in 2018, and also made more income than any other artiste in his category last year, 2018.
Recall,he wrote: “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, there’s a way I’m running it. Focus on yours. Facts over hype. It’s really simple.”
Davido, finally speaking on the award, said both artistes deserve to win best new artiste of 2018.
Davido disclosed this during a question and answer section on Twitter on Wednesday morning.
A fan had asked: “Do you think Peruzzi deserved that award over Teni?
Davido replied; “They both do!”
