Ruggedman is regarded as the pacesetter of commercial rap music in Nigeria, owing to the success and influence of his first two albums, ‘Thy Album Come’ (2004) and Ruggedy Baba (2007).


His last known record ‘Money Making Music’ was put out in 2012.

All his albums were all released on his personal label, Rugged Records.

The hip hop artiste also owns a clothing line called ’20th Sept Wear’, which is named after his birthday.
