“This is for Ruger, I love this boy,” BNXN said while pointing at the singer who was seated in the front row as members of the audience roared with excitement. The shout-out surprised fans because the music stars publicly dragged each other on Twitter days prior to the event.
Speaking to The Nation, the ‘Outside’ singer said,
“I needed people to understand that he is the list of my worries, like on a level, if it is competition-wise, talent-wise, or anything he is just the least of my worries, this is not a thing I don’t want people to think there is a Buju and Ruger thing(beef).”
Continuing, he said, “I needed people to understand that I’m doing me and I am more focused on my music and my journey to even caring about another man’s thing.”
