When Nigerian musician Michael Adebayo Olayinka, known and popularly referred to on stage as Ruger, made the announcement of his debut album, fans looked in anticipation, but also a little bit of scepticism. After all, they were familiar with the battles of wits, words and music between the star and his known rival – BNXN.
However, Ruger has reassured fans that his new album, coming soon, will be an eye opener for those who doubt his talent, and silence all critics. A snippet of a song off this imminent album was recently teased on Ruger’s Instagram story with D’Prince, confirming that a double collaboration of extraordinary talent is on the cards.
“This album will shut a lot of mouths I promise” he said.
In a subtle shade pointed at BNXN, Ruger could also be aiming to prove, through this album, that he is as much of a hit maker as his nemesis. Of course, no exact names were mentioned, but the implications are clear.
Given the level of talent and energetic vibes associated with Ruger, there is an expectation that this new album will be the start of something special. It is exciting to think of the new possibilities that this project will set in motion, and how it is perhaps a sign of a shift in the music scene of the country. With any luck, this album will be a gateway to many opportunities, collaborations and projects that Ruger, as well as the industry, can benefit from.
Though the release date of this album has not been announced yet, it is already apparent that this album is something to look forward to. Whether its purpose is to prove a point, stimulate creativity, or just to have some fun, fans can expect the best from Ruger in this upcoming project.
