Peruzzi vs Teni: Who Deserves The Next-Rated Award More?

Published

on

The year 2018 saw the rise of two artistes that are definitely the future of the Nigerian music industry; Peruzzi and Teni.

And though the unspoken competition between them is probably as hot as the Wizkid vs Davido debate, one has the edge over the other and is more deserving of the next-rated award as you will see when you read on.

So let’s meet the contestants.
Peruzzi took the nation by storm in 2018. No doubt his “coming out” party after a lot of alleged writing for the DMW gang over the years was a blissful one. He got featured on some of the best songs of the year like Tuface’s Amaka and the DMW gang’s songs (which many allege that Peruzzi actually created and wrote), and he dropped his EP late last year to crown everything up. Although his 2018 started off great, the EP kinda marred his overall year as it was received with mixed reviews, which tended more towards the negative side.
Teni also brought new life and a breath of fresh air to the industry in 2018. She literally held the industry by its horns and had lovers of good music leaning towards her artistry in a very male-dominated industry. Her singles were off the charts and for months on end, people kept singing all her songs and talking about them on social media and at almost all gatherings of music lovers.
If we look at the money aspect, there is no doubt that Peruzzi may have actually made more money. However, the money he made wasn’t from his own two hands. The shows he attended were due to the songs he got featured in or one or more members of the DMW gang performing at concerts worldwide. Teni, on the other hand, made her money and got invited to shows to sing her own songs. Unlike Peruzzi, the invites weren’t an extension of an affiliation to a bigger brand, they were genuinely because of her songs. If they were both invited to the same shows, there’s no doubt that Peruzzi may have to sing songs he got featured on to get the crowd wilding unlike Teni, who would sing her own songs. Yes, Peruzzi may have made more money, but it really isn’t about who makes more money. In this case, how the person made the money is just as important. And looking at it that way, Teni clearly edges Peruzzi out.
If it comes to who worked the harder, then that is still another matter that’s up for debate. Teni, like Peruzzi, has written a lot of songs for many people. And even though Peruzzi is rumoured to have written some of the biggest songs of the year, like Amaka, for instance, he wouldn’t get the credit until DMW and everyone involved actually comes out to say he wrote and created the songs. In Teni’s case, she just makes good music and that’s why Nigerians are vibing to her songs. I do believe, however, that Peruzzi worked harder, but he isn’t getting the credit he deserves, which is his management’s fault.
Overall, who do I think deserves the award for Next Rated and Best New Act? Teni!
She not only stood on her own two feet this year (even though Peruzzi isn’t wrong for having DMW behind him), but she also had more popular singles than the DMW maestro.

Nicki Minaj agrees “Essence” should be song of the year at the Grammys

American superstar rapper, Nicki Minaj, shares the same sentiments as myriads of Wizkid fans and well-wishers worldwide, in that she concurs to the argument the trendsetting crossover record-breaking single from Wizkid’s 2020 released “Made In Lagos” album, Essence should be in the conversation for the coveted “Record of the Year” plaque at this year’s Grammy Awards.

Although “Essence” did not receive the much desired nomination in the category for “Record of the Year” at the 2022 Grammy Awards, it did get a nod for Best Global Music Performance, the first of its kind.

Irrespective of the snub, Nicki whilie on Joe Budden TV (YouTube) as a guest on the special episode tagged A Conversation With Nicki Minaj & Joe Budden agreed with the host (Joe Budden) when he said “We need people on the Grammy board that know that “Essence” was song of the year” with an exclamatory “Right! Right!” response. She even proffered, “We should have our own Grammy Board“, in support of many and the popular believe that Black Americans or black artistes in general are always stereotyped to a particular category at the award show, if indeed they made it to the top categories, they barely win; Nicki Minaj does not have a Grammy Award herself and that is still a shock to many, especially when considering her refined catalogue of music.
