Afrobeats is for those without talents – Ruggedman claims

Rapper Ruggedman distances himself from Naira Marley’s arrest by EFCC

Ruggedman, the veteran Nigerian rapper Michael Ugochukwu Steven, has expressed his concern about the rise of untalented individuals falsely presenting themselves as Afrobeats singers.

He argues that those lacking talent should not be using the term “Afrobeats” to describe their music.

Speaking in a candid interview with Chude Jideonwo, Ruggedman said:

“When you ask me what Afrobeats is, I would say Afrobeats is what a lot of talentless people hide behind,”
