From what it appears to be, it seems Ruggedman’s fight against internet fraud is beginning to cause more harm than any good.
The rapper was recently attacked by four men in London for speaking against the menace caused by internet fraudsters a few months ago. In the viral video of the attack, two of the men is seen wrestling Ruggedman while one tries to slam him with a chair and another records the drama as they turn the restaurant the rapper was seated upside down.

Barely 24-hours after the attack, another Nigerian who lives in South Africa has threatened to take the rapper’s life if he steps foot in the country. According to the man identified as “Kabongo”, he shared a video of the Ruggedman attack via his Instagram Story and wrote;
See as life nearly kill you, Come Southy make u come collect the end of your life, he sure for me.
Although details of the attack are still sketchy, many have connected it to the recent arrest of Naira Marley by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). If the speculations are true, Marlians (slang used to describe Naira Marley’s fans) need to be guided. Violence is not the answer to anything and nobody needs to be attacked for advocacy or freedom of expression.
In the meantime, we hope the security agencies swing into action and ensure the safety of one of Nigerian’s finest rappers, Ruggedman.
