The Twitter feud between BNXN formerly known as Buju and Ruger currently rising to the status of a trending topic. Following BNXN’s tweet in which the star of the film Bad Since ’97 disparaged Ruger, their feud resumed. BNXN mentioned;
“What if I what if I what if I COOOKKKK #BadSince97” while sharing a link to his new project and screenshots of his song with Wizkid as well as that of his album currently sitting at the number one position on Apple Music’s Nigerian album chart.
Ruger responded by saying, “Get a solo hit then talk to me, fatty bum bum,” in response. In an immediate response to the latter’s post, BNXN quoted the tweet and wrote, “Project #1 and I didn’t have to whine my waist.” BNXN then supported his argument with a screenshot showing Ruger’s albums Pandemic EP and The Second Wave (Deluxe edition) at numbers 64 and 33 on the Apple music album charts, respectively. Between these two tweets, BNXN responded to Ruger’s reply with another one that said, “Man had to body shame? hurt him deeeep.”
Remember how Ruger responded to a BNXN fan who interrupted his Twitter question-and-answer session to tweet at Ruger that BNXN was a greater artist than he was? That is how the Ruger VS BNXN rivalry started. To this, Ruger had answered by comparing his own accomplishments to those of BNXN. Omah Lay and Victony, who had a brief but now-squelched confrontation, had also been riled up by this Twitter feud.
The singer’s sophomore album, BNXN’s Bad Since ’97, which presently sits atop the Apple Music Nigeria album charts, was released on August 24 and features A-listers Olamide, Wande Coal, and Wizkid.
