Ace Comedian, actor, and MC, Gbenga Adeyinka 1st, has instructed his lawyers to slam ₦100m suit against DMW Music artist, Tobechukwu Okoh, a.k.a Peruzzi.

This is related over Peruzzi’s absence at one of the 2022 editions of the Laffmattazz with Gbenga Adeyinka and friends.

The papers filed by Adeyinka’s lawyers implied that Peruzzi failed to show up at the June 12 edition of Laffmattazz with Gbenga Adeyinka and friends in Akure, Ondo State.

Peruzzi failed to perform after the comedian had paid the sum of ₦2.5 million for his services.

It was also gathered that Adeyinka had incurred an extra ₦1.5million that covered the flight ticket, rooms, and transportation to and from the airport for Peruzzi.

Peruzzi was served a legal notice by Udomah Daniel Idoteyin over his failure to perform at a wedding ceremony in Uyo, Akwa Ibom after being fully paid.

Idoteyin took legal steps to seek redress and get back the sum of ₦3.670m performance fees from Peruzzi, who failed to show up or perform at his wedding after paying his fees.

Idoteyin called out Peruzzi for failing to refund the sum.

Idoteyin said he contacted Peruzzi through a show promoter, Oluwatomi Sokenu, to perform at his wedding ceremony slated for July 23, 2022, at E3 Event and Banquet Hall, KM. 1, Uyo Bassey Way, Uyo, Akwa-Ibom State, but the singer failed to either show up or return the money.
