Apparently, Ruger’s cryptic tweet was aimed at BNXN fka Buju, whom he’s had a Twitter fight with in the past.
Back in July, Ruger engaged a fan who said BNXN fka Buju is a better singer than he is. Refuting the claim, Ruger alleged that Buju does not have as many solo hits as he has.
However, this time, Ruger tweeted that a certain musician has been chasing clout and paying influencers to promote his songs.
Despite not tagging or namedropping anybody, Buju followed up Ruger’s comments with a series of tweets, accusing the Jonzing World Entertainment star and his label of being the ones that pay people to up their streaming numbers. Ruger’s latest single Asiwaju is currently in the top 3 of the most streamed songs on Apple Music Nigeria.
Buju fired numerous shots at Ruger, tweeting that the Asiwaju singer has never headlined any local or international show because he has no real fans or organic following. According to him, Ruger and his boss, D Prince, operate streaming farms.
In another tweet, Buju said he turned down an endorsement deal, making it possible for Ruger and the brand to sign off on the deal. It’s not clear which endorsement deal he’s talking about though. However, in 2020, Ruger signed a mega deal with Eko Hotels & Suites. In March this year, he was also signed up to Tiger Beer’s ambassadorial program.
