Ruggedman has vowed not to have children outside wedlock, saying ”I am bidding my time to do the right thing.”
Speaking to Sunday Scoop about his career and how he has managed to remain in the industry, Ruggedibaba said,
”I have chosen to keep my relationship and my private life in general away from the press. I have vowed not to have kids out of wedlock and I am bidding my time to do the right thing.
“Like I said in my song, Baraje, I blend with the trend and stay forever like culture. I always move with the times and I make sure I stay on top of my game. I also work with the people who are making waves at any particular time and I keep making good music.
”When I started, some people felt I was just a troublemaker; they didn’t know that I was fighting for the industry. I stand on the side of the truth and that is what I’m known for. I wouldn’t go out of my way to diss anyone; I will just say the things that people know but don’t want to say.
”Now, we all know that Nigerian songs have taken over the whole African continent. I can confidently say that I am the first rapper to make money off rap music in Nigeria.”
