A witness identified as Aisha, who was reported to be present in the room where singer Peruzzi was alleged to have committed rape, has said he never did it.
Earlier today, a woman took to Twitter to call out the singer over the alleged rape. The woman claimed she followed Aisha to Peruzzi’s house and the singer approached her while everyone was sleeping that night after which he forced himself upon her.
The woman claimed she tried to wake Aisha, but she was deep asleep and couldn’t rescue her while the singer was having his way with her.
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!
Well, to clear his name, Peruzzi went on Instagram Live with Aisha.
Aisha and Peruzzi admitted that they had a thing in the past but Aisha has now moved on.
Aisha also said that she knows Peruzzi and he will never do such. She added that she was there and her friend was not raped as she claims.
“Please, I have a son that I’m bringing up and I will not want anyone to bring up any dead story that is not true about my son. So I’m not even liking this at all. This is not a real story, like, it didn’t happen at all, like, I was there, it didn’t happen so please.” Aisha said in the video.
UPDATE: Peruzzi goes on IG live with Aisha to counter the alleged rape victim’s claim.
According to Aisha, her friend wanted her to tell the world that she witnessed the rape but she declined, because it’s a lie… pic.twitter.com/ejW1vCzhfb
