Nigerian singer Michael Adebayo Olayinka, also known as Ruger, expressed gratitude towards his former record label, Jonzing World, for helping him gain fame.

However, he decided not to renew his contract, saying he felt the label did not promote his brand as effectively as he desired.

He accused his former record label boss, D’Prince, of neglecting him and using his music earnings to search for new talents.

Ruger vented his frustrations in a series of posts on X on Thursday, mentioning that he has more to share but is hesitant due to fear of potential repercussions from the record label.

He wrote, “As much as I’m very appreciative of the fact that Jonzing world introduced me to the world, I just couldn’t continue with them because they got too comfortable with the money they were making from me and couldn’t push me further as I wanted to be pushed. Was supposed to renegotiate the contract but I couldn’t imagine 5 years more without action.

“Dey use my money Dey fund new artist, leaving me in the dark, not being transparent. I just laugh. How e be now?

“Many things to to talk but dem fit go wait for me for ikoyi link bridge stab me wotowoto.”

Ruger departed from Jonzing World on February 6, 2024, after his contract ended.

He expressed gratitude to Jonzing World and D’Prince in an Instagram post, but mentioned that he felt it was time to believe in himself and take a chance.
