Nigerian musician Michael Adebayo Olayinka, popularly known as Ruger, has denounced allegiance to “some godfather,” claiming that this year is 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 new freestyle titled ‘Blownboy’ released under his personal owned Blown Boy Entertainment, the singer officially denounced godfatherism, asserting himself as his new boss.
“I denounce every loyalty to some godfather, this year I’m about me,” he sang in the freestyle video posted on his YouTube page on Friday.
