BNXN ‘Buju’ answers to Ruger’s claim that he is “pushing” his songs down people’s throats through advertisements and TikTok influencers: “Be organic or get the fvck out of my face.”
In response to Ruger criticizing him for utilizing TikTok and social media influencers to market his music, Nigerian singer Daniel Benson, also known as BNXN, has returned to social media.
The online tiff began when Ruger used his Twitter account to heavily criticize BNXN for “pushing his music down people’s throats” and for spending a lot of money on advertisements to promote his tracks.
He wrote on Twitter, “I am something. I’ve been shoving my music down people’s throats for years, whether they’re sweet or not, either through excessive advertising or by paying influencers to publicize tunes they don’t even enjoy. Or by TIKTOK users speeding up my song. WHO ARE YOU?
Ruger and BNXN, formerly known as Buju, have a history of conflict. Ruger responded on Twitter, telling him to be “organic or get the Fvck out of my face.” He continued by saying that airing advertisements to promote songs is perfectly acceptable.
Be organic or get the fuck out of my face, BNXN tweeted. How did you have more than 5k on Spotify but only a million views? Are you complaining to me? You’re at the top of the charts, but unlike Asake, you’re not strangling me in the streets. simply tiktoks? Are you stupid?
“Never faked it a day in my life,” he continued. On my mom, please! Nothing obtrusive! You can either like it or not! That’s how music ought to sound!
“I’ve worked with the SAME producers and they can see the difference, so I know I’m a better writer and lyricist than any of you flukes! Simple work! the community! I Dey display my workings!
“Ask the OG why he favors the boy. given that they could have called your men. Real musicians outspend label spending.
Ruger has never been the featured act at a major event venue in Nigeria, according to BNXN.
We understand why you haven’t headlined any location since entering the game, including Balmoral, Eko Hotel, Muri Okunola, and even your father’s property. Or should I depart the nation? … No headline to be found? And you’re at the top of the list? Are you kidding me?
I will see you then. I’m furious! Everything is fake!
Ruger tweeted in response to Buju’s posts: “Buju sweetheart, all I need from you right now is simple. I’ll list mine if you can name just five of your tunes that will excite the crowd during your concerts. Just your music, buju darling, I’m waiting; no features.
