Nigerian Afrobeats singers, Ruger and BNXN have resumed their online shades and accusations after weeks of ceasefire.
It all started with Ruger taking to his Twitter account on Wednesday to subtly jab BNXN by insinuating that his songs are only popular because he pays influencers to promote them
The Girlfriend crooner wrote; ”First of all, I want to thank God and everyone that actively listen to my songs. Next year will be a year of blessings for you all IJN. The real question I wan ask Dey my next tweet.
”I am something. For years now, I have forced my songs down people’s throat whether e sweet abi e no sweet either by too much ads or by paying every influencer to make noise about a song they don’t even like. Or by speeding my song on TIKTOK. WHAT AM I ?”.
In a lengthy Twitter thread, he claimed that it is what they use to make Ruger’s songs climb to the top of charts and none of it is organic.
He wrote; ”Biting the fingers of the hand that fed your boss enough to feed you ?? Even when you and your boss use the same strategy?? After all those streaming-farm payments?
All of you fakes will be exposed one by one! and you will do it yourselves.
There are streaming farms in Nigeria now. A room where your label bosses pay money to get your songs up by automation , no real fans , no real people , just a facade. Y’all make the people who really work for this bleed and your day is coming. Enikure.
Be organic or get the fuck out of my face!! How you got a million views and less than 5k on Spotify ? Are you whining me ? You’re top of the charts and you’re not choking me in the streets like Asake? just tiktoks? Are you silly ?”
Never faked it a day in my life!! On my mother!! Nothing forced! You like it or you don’t !! That’s how music should be!!
How I know I’m a better writer and lyricist than any of you flukes it’s cause Ive worked with the SAME producers and they can tell the difference!! Easy work!! Ask around! I Dey show workings! Fans know so little . Na we wey dey game go fit cast una”.
We know why you haven’t headlined any venue at all since you came in the game , not balmoral , not Eko hotel , not Muri Okunola , no even your father’s compound Or should be leave the country? … No headline anywhere? And you’re topping the chart ? Are we id!ots?”.
😂😂 biting the fingers of the hand that fed your boss enough to feed you ?? Even when you and your boss use the same strategy?? After all those streaming-farm payments? 🤮🤮

After seeing the rants, Ruger openly dared his colleague, BNXN to mention five of his solo songs that are hits.
”Buju baby all I need from you now is simple. I need you to list just five songs of yours that’ll make your crowd go crazy at your shows and I’ll list mine. No features, just your songs buju baby I’m waiting.” he wrote.
