A Nigerian popular singer and song writer aka Peruzzi recent blessed an Uber driver with N400k; however he called it a mistake.
David, the Nigerian hip-hop singer who asked Peruzzi to send his account number so that he can come over to Dubai to visit him.
Peruzzi said he made a mistake by sending the account number of an Uber driver he patronised as he didn’t have one to himself at the time.
According to him, the Uber driver switched off his phone after receiving the flight ticket money and went on the run.
“So he just told me I should come to Dubai. Because when he called me I was in the room doing nothing. He asked ‘do you have a passport?’ I said I don’t have a passport and he okay that he would call somebody,” Peruzzi said.
“I got the passport the next day. Then he said ‘send your account for ticket’. Me, a very useless guy at that time. I didn’t have an account, I was using different accounts. The account I copied was the Uber guy that carried me.
“Omo, Uber guy switched off his phone after collecting 400k. I screamed. I was like my ticket money is gone! I was looking for the Uber guy on Facebook.
“I went crazy. I went to Uber’s office and they said they had stopped the guy from working like a month ago. I was like where will I see 400k? What will I tell this guy that I just met? He would think that I have spent the money.
“David just asked me, ‘have you gotten your ticket?’ I told him what happened. He told me to send another account. I did. He said to resend and reposted it. I got the ticket and met him in Dubai. Next, we’re on a flight to Lebanon.”
