In the video clip, Rudeboy showed off the gold award plaque while acknowledging that his fans earlier earned him a silver YouTube plaque.

He also made reference to the silver plaque which he got when he surpassed a hundred thousand subscribers.

Rudeboy had gone solo following his split from Peter Okoye, his twin brother with whom he had worked under the now-defunct music group P-Square.

The singer, who struck out on his own, later revealed that it took him a long time before he adjusted to performing alone.

Paul put out ‘Reality’ in 2018 and enlisted Patoranking on another single ‘Together’. The singer’s 2019 debut ‘Reason with Me’ cleared obstacles to top the charts.

The music video for the song became the most viewed African music video on YouTube in 2019 with 40 million views — and then garnered nearly 84 million views as of December 2020.

Since then, Rudeboy has released singles like ‘Audio Money’, ‘Take it’, ‘Woman’ and ‘Oga’. In 2019, he founded his record label named Fire Department Inc. (FDI).
