Nigerian Dancehall artist, Ruger, known for his hit song ‘Asiwaju’, has officially ended his partnership with Jonzing World, a label owned by D’Prince.

“Hello, everyone, it is Ruger out here. I want to be closer to my fans. People that have been supporting me since the beginning of my career up till this moment. I love you guys so much. I feel like there is a lot you do not know about me. There is a part of my life that you do not know. How fun I am to be with, to vibe with. And I want you guys to know that part. I want to share that part with you.”
“As you have seen now, I just started my own label. I need all the support. I need all the love, up close and personal. I love you guys so much. I am going to be sharing some snippets with you guys-my plans for the year. And you know you guys are going to get firsthand everything I am going to do this year. I love you guys so much.”
