Ruger, the stage name of Nigerian musician Michael Adebayo Olayinka, has rejected allegiance to “some godfather,” claiming that this year is all about him.
The “Asiwaju” crooner made the announcement a few days after leaving Jonzing World recordings, which were owned by D’Prince, the younger brother of renowned music boss Don Jazzy.
On February 6, 2023, Ruger announced his departure from Jonzing World on Instagram. He expressed his gratitude to D’Prince and Jonzing World, but he also stated that it was time for him to place a bet on himself.
In a recent freestyle named “Blownboy,” which was published under his own label, Blown Boy Entertainment, the singer said that he was now in charge and formally criticized godfatherism.
In the freestyle video that was uploaded to his YouTube profile, he sang, “I denounce every loyalty to some godfather, this year I’m about me.”
