VIDEO: Ruggedman Breaks Down The 9ice Beef And More On Factory78

The biggest and most controversial news of 2010 in the Nigerian Entertainment Industry as a whole was the controversy between Ruggedman and 9ice. This is a detailed story of what happened and why Ruggedman took the extra step of recording the conversation that turned out to be the MOST POPULAR post here on notjustOk.com (...and still counting).

Nigerian Hip Hop star Ruggedman sits down with factory78 on his recent trip to the UK to discuss his latest album Untouchable, his upcoming music video featuring the late rapper DaGrin, working on Seminars aimed at inspiring the younger generation and finally laying to rest his infamous recorded telephone conversation with his once close friend and ally 9ice. Ruggedman was his likeable self in this tell-all-no-holds-barred interview, revealing reasons behind the steps he took to clear his name and the resulting diss tracks made by both camps.

Shout-out to our good friends DJ Lanre, Adesope and the whole Factory78 Crew!

BONUS:

Ruggedman resurrects DaGrin for his video.

Ruggedy Baba who just returned from speaking at a seminar in the UK tagged "Get Inspired" is at it again. The seminar was held at the London Metropolitan university on the 2nd of April 2011 and had other notable speakers like the acting ambassador to the United Kingdom ambassador Dozie Nwanna,Bob Ferguson,Ramsey Noah,british sopa opera Eastenders actress Ellen Thomson and also the host and organiser of the seminar Dayo Isreal.

Ruggedman,who is currently hosting the prestigous music talent reality tv show Star Quest for the 3rd year running two weeks ago shot the video for one of the tracks off his "untouchable" album titled "Emini" ft DaGrin.
The track was produced by Kash Eleven.The video was directed by fast rising video director James Oludare.
What a few people who have seen the teaser for the video can not get over is the fact that its truelly DaGrin that's in the video,not a look alike or an animated character.Ruggedman is set to drop the video on the 22nd of April 2011 and the nation and indeed the world is waiting to see it.

Ruggedman also shot the video for Ebemsi featuring Flavour Nabania the same week and it was directed by Emeka Obefe who directed Ruggedmans award winning Ruggedy Baba video.

Instead of calling bastard like 9ice why don't you listen to the interview and wait for Mr 9ice's interview (if he will ever do any) to either confirm or contradict what Ruggedman had to say.

It is clear what 9ice wanted to do but it backfired. If you catch your wife in the act you will not run to the studio to record a track. Come to think of it, the track was already done before they even separated

Keep doing your thing Rugged and don't mind them haters. Tell you what, some people are just enemies of progress. Don't be surprised that most of these anonymous commentators above are the same enemies of yours in the industry. It's easy for them to hide under anonymity because they are cowards who are so afraid your progress. My advice to you is keep your hands clean and leave vengeance for God. They will never succeed in bringing you down, they more they try the more successful you'll be. May God bless you.

people that think this guy is looking for cheap publicity shud listen to the whole interview and make their judgement afterwards and if you can sincerely say that 9ice was talking about RM then i would say you are bias/fanatic!!!! as for me if i do not hear from 9ice then i think he deserves seeing his babe nodding anoda guy, cos he doesn't deserve her.

I think ruggedman is just being silly. It is clear that nice didn't mention anyone's name, thus whatever names people call is is just an assertion. 9ice owes neither Ruggedman nor Toni any apology because he did not mention their names. On the contrary, 9ice should sue ruggedman for illegally recording a private conversation.

You are a liar bruv... Don't hate on this dude... He is way bigger than 9ice as far as the Nigerian music industry is concerned... 9ice needs to apologize to rugged and toni payne... Well only time will tell, if 9ice is up to the task... If ruggedman can speak up then who is 9ice... If he doesn't apologize, his career will crumble, talent or no talent and it's slowly happening... When was the last time 9ice made a hit song??? I think that was last year b4 this whole thing escalated... Don't argue blindly, 9ice's fans are decreasing ever… Read more »

RUGGEDY BABA, I HAVE ALWAYS BELIEVED YOU, THE TRUTH IS THAT 9ICE LOST IT WHEN HE ALLOWED PPLE CLOSE 2 HIM CREATE SUCH A WICKED RUMOUR WITHOUT HIM QUASHING IT, NOW EVERYTHING IS BACKFIRING, EVEN TONI PAYNE HAS COME OUT TO SAY HER OUR SIDE OF THE STORY QUASHING THE RUMOURS,I QUOTE RUGGEDY ''IF U WANNA DO A DISS SONG, BASE IT ON THE ISSUE ON GROUND, NOT LIKE 9ICE WHO WAS SCREAMING BASTARD BASTARD IN HIS DISS TRACK''

Any1 that still speaks bad of ruggedman after this interview has a big problem, and the person is immature. The guy released audio u abused him, he released video u r still nailing his cross, na wa o. I hope it happens to you , yes you, you should hear rumours about yourself about something you didnt do, then you will know how it feels. I bet some of you will contemplate suicide and I hope it happens.

He has every right to be proud as long as he doesn't have any hand in such a messed up situation... If you were accused of something you didn't do, won't you be proud that you didn't get your self involved in such a mess... Please be reasonable b4 you take shots at people...

ode.how do you sue him? first there is no law prohibiting Ruggedman. Secondly, he also was a participant in the conversation and as such has a right to a copy of it. Its considered a verbal document. Thirdly allow your brain work and weigh the argument on its merit. If you were in a similar case if you dont employ such ingenious ways to clear your reputation then it shows how little the value of your name is to you.

I think the presenter goofed by agreeing with Ruggedman's recording of his telephone conversation with 9ice. I believe that is a blatant display of bias and it is very unprofessional.

I see there are many insincere people around here...Am sure u would have done worse if you were in his shoes. This guy owns an enterprise and he would rather exhaust all possible options than watch, keep quiet and 'die' all bcos of hearsay. I will be on the look out for 9ice's interview and then make a final conclusion, but just like in football, Ruggedman has an advantage from the 1st leg.
