Ruggedman has said he has a good relationship with all the artistes he dissed in the past. In an exclusive chat, the Rugged Records boss said he only dissed them back then to sanitize the industry. ‘I don’t have any beef with anybody no more. My outburst on the track, ‘Ehen’ and subsequent songs was just tomake a statement about certain things which weren’t going right,’ he said.
Not many would have forgotten the first single by the LASU graduate of Political Science. Titled ‘Ehen’, the hit track was a stinging attack on some of the top artistes in the industry then including Eedris Abdulkareem, Maintain, Rasqie and others. He went on to launch further attack in other songs including ‘Peace of War’ as he developed a widely reported row with Kennis Music as well as celebrated lyricist, Modenine.
