Ruger, the Nigerian Afropop singer, says most songs on his ‘Second Wave’ deluxe are based on his personal experiences.


The Afropop star spoke about the project during an interview session with Dadaboy Ehiz on Apple Music’s Africa Now Radio via FaceTime.

Asked if he is concerned about the way music lovers jump on a hit song and after trending for a while, move on to the next popular tune, Ruger said: “I don’t know but I feel like if they don’t hear anything from you in a while they feel like “Where’s Ruger?”.

He also averred that his music is very authentic, original and also resonates with people.


“Listeners need to know that whenever Ruger comes through, it’s always a 100% vibe, so these songs are very personal songs to me – ‘Girlfriend’ is a personal song, ‘WeWe’ is a personal song, and ‘Warning’ is also a personal song,” he said.

“It’s just me stating about my personal experiences, and people who can relate to what I’m talking about, can relate.”

Ruger also appreciated his fans for the support, adding that he doesn’t take it for granted.


“I thank God and I thank everyone that enjoys my music as it comes out every time. It’s just encouragement for me to work harder and keep doing my best,” he said.

“Never going to the studio to do any mediocre sounds, never going to the studio to say whatever I drop they’re going to listen, I go into the studio giving my 100% best and God will do the rest for me.

“I feel like these songs are going to go very far, I’m proud of what I’ve done in the studio and I’m thankful for everyone supporting me in every little way they can. I’ll keep giving my best.”
