Buju BNXN also explained why he mentioned the name of the Mavin signee, Ruger at the 15th Headies award.
BNXN said he did that to ensure he stops fans from believing or insinuating an industry beef between himself and his colleague.
The ‘Outside’ crooner who is anticipating a collaboration with Gospel singer, Tope Alabi, spoke to The Nation in an interview and said: “I needed people to understand that he is the least of my worries, like on a level, if it is competition-wise, talent-wise, or anything he is just the least of my worries, this is not a thing I don’t want people to think there is a Buju and Ruger thing (beef).”
“I needed people to understand that I’m doing me and I am more focused on my music and my journey to even caring about another man’s thing.”
GbExtra Blog recalls Buju BNXN received his 2022 Bentley as promised by the organisers of the Headies for winning the Next Rated Artiste category.
Headies boss, Ayo Animashaun announced this in an Instagram post where he posted photos of himself and the singer with the new car.

BNXN also posted photos of the car on his Instagram account. The 25-year-old was announced the winner of the category at the 2022 Headies Award ceremony held last Sunday in Atlanta, United States of America.
Speaking after the win, the Afrobeat star formerly known as Buju dedicated the award to his mum who died of cancer.
