Singer, Peruzzi, has apologised for some of his old tweets in which he boasts about raping women after being forced to deny another allegation of sexual assault.
The 30-year-old, born Tobechukwu Okoh, apologised for the tweets on Twitter on Thursday, saying that they are ‘not him.’
“In light of recent allegations, accusing me of rape in 2012, I want to say that I, Tobechukwu Victor Okoh, strongly refute such claim. I have never and will never rape or sexually assault anybody,” he wrote.
The Lagos-born singer again denied the claim made by a woman with Instagram username @Jayamah22, who on Tuesday accused him of raping her in 2014.
“The claim is false and has also been refuted by a witness who was present at the time of the allegation. Rape is a heinous and cowardly act, which I do not condone. I’m ashamed and deeply apologetic for a series of tweets posted on social media 8 years ago,” he added.
Peruzzi had earlier denied the allegation in a seperate tweet on Thursday.
“My name is Tobechukwu Okoh and I have never and will never be a rapist. Na una papa be rapist,” he wrote.
United Kingdom-based singer, Daffy Blanco, made similar accusations against Peruzzi in January which he also denied.
