Ruger has left Jonzing World for his own imprint, Blown Boy Entertainment
●23rd January 2024
Nigerian music sensation Ruger has severed ties with D’Prince’s Jonzing World label and launched his own imprint, aptly named “Blown Boy Entertainment.”
Ruger’s journey with Jonzing World, an affiliate of Don Jazzy’s Mavin Records, has been nothing short of explosive. Signed in 2020, the then-fresh-faced artist burst onto the scene with the infectious dancehall banger “Bounce.” Hits like “Girlfriend” and “Asiwaju” followed, cementing his status as a global Afrobeats force. Ruger’s two EPs, Pandemic and Second Wave, solidified his artistic vision, earning him awards like the AFRIMA Best Newcomer and Soundcity MVP Best New Artiste. His debut album, Ru the Worldwas a hit, packed with chart-toppers.
Anyways, it seems Ruger is now ready to fly solo. While reasons for the split remain undisclosed, the singer expressed immense gratitude to Jonzing World and D’Prince for their role in his ascent. He now confidently takes the reins with “Blown Boy Entertainment,” a move indicative of his desire for artistic control and independence.
This is undoubtedly an important moment for Ruger. His success at Jonzing World demonstrated his great talent, and Blown Boy Entertainment represents a blank canvas for him to paint his artistic vision. With his charisma, vocals, and witty, razor-sharp songwriting, Ruger is poised to soar even higher.
