“I wish him well mehn, I’m happy for him, he’s making his P’s, everybody must eat. When my people told me, people were telling me ‘have you seen this?’ man’s just trying to hustle, he’s actually promoting my song in a way because he’s not making his own songs and saying it’s Ruger that made the songs, he’s singing my songs. At the end of the day, they will go back to their house and stream those songs, that's the most important thing, abeg everybody should calm down.”
