Ruger clarifies: Tunde Ednut discovered him, not D’Prince.
Nigerian music sensation Michael Adebayo Olayinka, popularly known as Ruger, has challenged a widely held belief by asserting that blogger Tunde Ednut, not his former boss D’Prince, was the one who initially discovered him.
The 24-year-old singer disclosed on his Instagram story that it was Tunde Ednut who introduced him to D’Prince, ultimately leading to his signing with Jonzing World, D’Prince’s record label.
Ruger made this revelation shortly after parting ways with Jonzing World to establish his own music label, Blown Boy Entertainment, expressing his gratitude to Tunde Ednut as the initial catalyst in his career journey.
Acknowledging his newfound freedom to speak openly, Ruger thanked Tunde Ednut, referring to him as the “king maker” for his pivotal role.
He wrote: “Just because I’m free to talk now, I want to specially thank @mazitundeednut for being the initial person that discovered me before handing me over to the Prince. God bless you, king maker.”
In other news, Ruger stirred up online conversations by declaring his independence from certain influential figures, referred to as “godfathers,” within the music industry.
In a trending video, the ‘Asiwaju’ singer expressed his determination to prioritize himself this year, signaling a shift away from previous loyalties.
Ruger announced his departure from Jonzing World and his intention to pursue his own path in a freestyle titled ‘Blownboy,’ shared on Instagram on February 6th.
While expressing gratitude to Jonzing World and D’Prince, Ruger emphasized the importance of betting on himself moving forward.
In his freestyle, he sang, “I denounce every loyalty to some godfather; this year I’m about me,” affirming his commitment to self-reliance and personal growth.
