Ruggedman is my favourite Nigerian rapper. I luv his flow and his lyrics are always on point! I have luved his music ever since he unleashed his diss track – “Ehen” where he basically called-out every single Nigerian rapper. Ruggedman is back with a new album and the first single is called “Club Rugged”. The song is very catchy, well-produced and his flow is tight as usual.

TUNE: Indian melody in the background – CHECK
LYRICS: “…Wind ur waist for me….” – CHECK
VOCALS: Girl whispering seductively in the background (LOL) – CHECK

Anyway, I still luv the song!!!! I am sure his second single, “Ruggedy Baba” has a more Nigerian flava…….I will definitely buy his new album…U guys should get it when it hits stores soon

See his official website HERE

In terms of gist, Ruggedman now has a pimped out BMW with monogrammed seats….I dunno y it is news when Nigerian musicians buy cars……as if people dont expect them to be able to afford one? well, I guess music now pays in Nigeria!
What do u guys think of Ruggedman? Is he cute…lol? “Club Rugged”? Does Nigerian hip-hop lack a unique identity? Is it just a wannabe version of American Hip-Hop?

    As for me o I like Ruggedman’s music..very creative videos involving not bad choreography and colorful if I might add.

    Cute??? He’s not bad as in really and truly he could look like Omobaba (Funny Naija comedian)…lol!!!
    Our hip-hop music is most definitely improving and will soon have it’s own sense of uniqueness, but bearing that in mind there are quite a few wannabe Yankee Hip hop musician who still need to be HELPED( in seriously u should see what we in England get to watch on tv 🙁

    But I see that bright light down the tunnel…so undeniably from hence forth FORWARD it shall be for the Nigerian Music scene.

    Bella Naija when are u going to do something on Dare Art-Alade and his fellow Storm records artists???
