He’s new to the industry, yes. And although he doesn’t have a long list of songs that he owns, he’s been featured on many hits. There’s “Mind,” there’s “Aje,” and “Aza,” they’re all DMW collectives. “Aza” which is the most recent of all, features Duncan Mighty, by the way. He was also featured on 2Baba’s viral hit “Amaka,” one of his best guest appearances, till day. His “For Your Pocket,” single got its Davido remix, recently and he was on Percy‘s “Tatashe.” Not forgetting GospelOnDeBeatz’s “Run Am,” which features him and his boss, Davido. By all standards, Peruzzi deserves the Next Rated!
Ceeza Milli on the other hand, is not confirmed to be signed on Wizkid’s Starboy imprint, yet. But, Wizkid really put him on, this year. He was on Wizkid’s mega hit, “Soco,” and on “Commando,” another hit with Wiz. Duncan Mighty came through for him on “Sabi,” so the Starboy influence is there for him. And last year, Masterkraft had featured him on “Olohungbo,” where he shone alongside Tinny Entertainment rapper, Ycee and Chocolate City singer, Dice Ailes.
Unlike Peruzzi, though, Ceeza has songs of his own. “Rotate,” “There She Goes,” and the popular, “Yapa.” While we can say Ceeza’s relatively new, too, he actually deserves some accolades. What accolade can be more deserving than the Next Rated.
It’s probably a Starboy vs DMW war now, hence a Wizkid vs Davido. So, for die-hard fans of Wiz, it’s Ceeza, and for the fans of Davido, it’s Peruzzi. But for people like me who sitting on the fence, we’ll let the Awards decide. NEA don fuck up, let’s just hope The Headies will come through!
