Ruger reveals why he squashed his beef with BNXN

Published

Ruger speaks on squashing his beef with BNXN and his new singles ‘Luv Again’ and ‘Make Way’.

In an interview with Beats FM 99.9, Ruger discussed the inspiration behind his new singles ‘Luv Again’ and ‘Make Way’ and how he squashed his beef with BNXN.

Ruger and BNXN (formerly Buju) have a very highly publicised beef that went for nearly 3 years before it was eventually squashed. According to Ruger, the issue with BNXN was fuelled by fan comparison which he thinks is not always negative but sadly led to a beef between them.

“Comparison is a killer of joy, but it’s necessary for the game. This is what is entertaining these people. The arguments and all that,” Ruger told Beat FM.

“We looked beyond that (the comparisons) and asked ‘How can we push good music together?’ Because there’s a lot of distractions now in the music space. Some people are releasing things that are not good, but they are using money to push it and it’s flying…If you look at the ‘RnB’ project, it’s very good music,” Ruger said on squashing his beef with BNXN and collaborating on the joint EP ‘RnB’.

Ruger recently released two new singles ‘Luv Again’ and ‘Make Way’. According to the multi-talented Nigerian dancehall sensation, ‘Luv Again’ is him saying he has loved again but he can switch anytime.

On his relationship life, Ruger shares that he finds it very easy to fall in love although he’s not in one right now because of the summer where he is billed to go on a European tour.

David Hinds accuses Burna Boy of disrespecting Reggae band at German festival

David ‘Electric’ Hinds, the lead singer and guitarist of Steel Pulse, has called out Burna Boy for allegedly disrespecting the Grammy award-winning Reggae band, at a German festival.

The 2024 Summer Jam Festival was held in Germany from July 5 to 7.

The event headliners were Burna Boy and Jamaican artistes such as Skillibeng, Konshens, Busy Signal, Lila Ike, Beenie Man, and Ky-Mani Marley.

In a comment beneath an Instagram post about the festival, Hinds claimed Burna Boy arrived at the event with a large entourage and demanded additional dressing rooms to accommodate his team.

He accused the Afrofusion singer of attempting to force him and fellow Steel Pulse members out of their dressing room.

Hinds argued that Burna Boy and his crew’s behaviour cannot be a part of Reggae’s culture, which promotes peace, love, and unity.

The reggae artiste also criticised the festival organisers for allowing his band to be “bullied” by Burna Boy’s security team.

“Burna Boy and security crew fully disrespected us at Steel Pulse, trying to kick us out of our dressing room so he could have 4 dressing rooms for his massive entourage,” he wrote.

“Selwyn Brown, original member of Steel Pulse, was livid and our team stood our ground and told them to beat it and you can’t do that to people, especially to a band that has paved the way for Reggae music.

“Summer Jam why do you have a full security team that think they can come in and bully people? Who the hell does Burna Boy think he is?

“And because of us refusing to leave, the security team proceeded to build a barricade of a blacked out chain linked fence that split the hallway between our dressing room and his dressing room making it feel like we were in prison or something.

“I hope that these legendary reggae festivals realize that this can’t be apart of the reggae culture. That’s Babylon business. We don’t treat people like that.

“Please recognise this because Steel Pulse was fully disrespected. Reggae promotes Peace, Love, Unity.. stand up for your rights, we must never give up the fight.”

As of the time of this report, neither Burna Boy nor the organisers of Summer Jam have responded to the allegations.

Kate Henshaw clarifies calling out Davido for not greeting her

Published

By

Nollywood actress Kate Henshaw has explained why she spoke about Davido not greeting her at a previous event, stressing that she was simply answering a question.

During a recent appearance on Isbae U’s show, Curiousity Made Me Ask, the actress was asked, “Sorry, why did you go to an interview to report Davido because he didn’t greet you?”

Appalled by the question, Kate Henshaw stressed that she did not report the singer to anyone.

She retorted, “I was asked a question, and I answered it. I didn’t report anybody; I responded to the question. What is ‘report?’ What does report mean?”

“They asked about the person, and I was speaking about the knowledge and interaction that I had. I didn’t report, and we even had a conversation after that, so it’s really none of your business. That’s what you people do; you look for strife,” she added.

Shortly after her statement, Isbae U brought in a Davido lookalike to prostrate in front of her and apologise for the singer’s shortcomings.

This comes after Henshaw revealed that she was not a fan of Davido during an interview with media personality Chude Jideonwo in December 2023. At the time, she recalled an occasion where she met the singer, but he did not acknowledge her presence.

When asked about Davido, Kate Henshaw said, “Well, I’m not a fan. I like his music, but personally, I don’t know him. I’ve met him; he didn’t greet me. I’m sorry. No, I’m not sorry. I’m old enough. He didn’t greet, and for me, I believe he should be respectful. For me, personality matters.”
