FOR including him in his rants in an interview online, foremost rapper, Michael Stevens has called out his colleague in the industry, Blackface.
In a Facebook rebuttal, Ruggedman said that he feels sad having to respond to Blackface but artistes to whom he has always tried to set a good example would understand.
“I am and will always be a fan of your one and only album ‘Ghetto Child’ that had some conscious tracks in it,” he wrote.
“By the way, I am sure you are not blind and can see that Nigeria is still not as great as we want. So why aren’t you singing everyday about it like you said you expected me to keep doing about artists copying?
“Every time I read about you on social media you are complaining and ranting. If your people around you won’t tell you the truth I will. You are beginning to look like a sad, jealous, washed up artist who can’t keep up with his fellow artists. Like you can’t make music anymore.”
Tackling Blackface’s claims that he wrote certain songs which his former bandmate, Tubaba allegedly stole, Ruggedman said that a grown man would hit the studio and record more of such songs like 2baba, Sound Sultan, the great Daddy Showkey, African China and Oritse Femi have been doing and prove to the world he wrote them.
“But you turn town crier at any opportunity you get in front of a camera. I don’t want to believe that complaining on interviews and calling artists names is your only hold on relevance.
“My brother you are too talented and too old for all this. You are now a veteran upcoming artist bro. Putting my name in your interview was a wrong move,” he added.
