Nigerian singers, Buju, Daniel Benson, and Ruger, Michael Adebayo Olayinka, have left their fans talking as both of them continue to slam themselves on social media.
The argument between these singers started when Ruger posted on his page, on November 14, 2022, apologising to his fans for listening to noise, as he was yet to drop his songs, “Asiwaju” and “Red Flag”.
He tweeted, “just because of all the unnecessary NOISE i let you all listen to last week, I’ve decided to cleanse your ears with two songs instead ASIWAJU and RED FLAGS, Both songs will drop 2pm wat tomorrow 15th November plus visuals for RED FLAGS”
This prompted Nigerians to attack the singer, saying he has no rights to call other singers songs noise.
Also, on Wednesday, November 23, 2022, the singer took to his page, dissing the “In My Mind” crooner, with a sarcastic question.
The singer wrote on his twitter handle, “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 ?”
Reacting to this, Buju took to his page, and wrote, “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 ?
“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!”
Buju also made him realise that he(Ruger) just entered the game and knows nothing about it, stressing that they are not in the same category.
He also alleged that Ruger has been the one getting his songs up by automation.
He said, “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.”
He therefore stressed that he has “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!!”
However, these singers fans have been tackling one another on social medias, as they claim one is better than one.
The Red Flags crooner is therefore, yet to reply him at the time of filing this report.
