Nigerians singer, Daniel Benson better known as BNXN, and his colleague, Ruger had a war of words on Thursday, April 25.
It was a continuation of a beef that started in July 2022 when Ruger while replying a fan said he is better than the ‘Lenu’ crooner.
“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.
The recent clash on Twitter started after BNXN celebrated his new project, ‘Bad Since ’97, which currently tops the Apple Music’s Nigerian album chart, by sending shots at Ruger.
He shared an image of the album’s position on the charts and referenced Ruger’s lyrics from his song, Girlfriend, in a bid to shade him.
BNXN tweeted, “What if I, what if I what if I, COOOKKKK #BadSince97”
Responding to the tweet, Rudger mocked him by saying that he should first get a hit song without featuring any artiste before he can talk to him.
He also mocked singer over his body size in a post on his Twitter page.
Ruger tweeted; “Get a solo hit then talk to me fatty bum bum.”
But it triggered the former Burna Boy protege who then went on a rant about how he is the better than the Jonzing Records artiste which is why he body shamed him.
“Man had to body shame? 😞💀 hurt him deeeeep 😂
I have 2 projects on the top 20 Albums 🇳🇬 #1 & #14
“Sorry I’m Late” was from October 2021
My fans are the best in the world❤️”
Project #1 and I didn’t have to whine my waist 🥰
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 wrote.
