BNXN, Ruger resume fight on Twitter


Singer Benson Daniel, popularly known as BNXN, and his colleague Micheal Olayinka, known professionally as Ruger, have resumed their fight on Twitter.

The beef between both artistes dates back to a tweet by Ruger in July, written as a response to BNXN’s fan who claimed the latter was the better artiste.

In the post, Ruger stated that his success in the music industry was based on his solo songs while BNXN, formerly known as Buju, relied on collaboration to make hits.

“I love Buju, he’s good but he’s not better than me. Everything I’ve done since the beginning was only RUGER. All my hits are JUST RUGER. I’m always proud going on stage around the world with my own hits and everyone is singing along. You see the difference?” he wrote.

However, Buju revisited the feud while celebrating his new album Bad Since 97 which currently tops the Apple Music’s Nigerian album chart, firing shots at Ruger.

Sharing a picture of the album’s position on Thursday, BNXN tweeted, “What if I, what if I what if I, COOOKKKK #BadSince97”

The line was a reference to Ruger’s hit song, ‘Girlfriend’.

Responding to the tweet, Ruger asked BNXN to “get a solo hit then talk to me fatty bum bum.”

“The project will ALWAYS be more important than the hit! Look at Burna Boy! That’s my yardstick, you think I wanna blow with 1/2 songs and I no fit come back ?? When he was dropping you didn’t call those songs hits back then but you see now? Open your eye patch,” BNXN fired back.

Sharing pictures of Ruger’s albums, Pandemic EP and The Second Wave (Deluxe edition), which currently sit at number 64 and 33 respectively on the same charts, BNXN also tweeted, “Project #1 and I didn’t have to whine my waist”.
