In the showdown that happened on music twitter yesterday where a lot of secrets were revealed and top artistes like Burna Boy, Davido, Fireboy DML were accused of buying streams, we want to tell the story of how the fight started.
Yesterday, Ruger implied, in a roundabout way, that Mavin Records released a noise about two weeks ago.
The attempts of Magixx and Bayanni to clap back were unsuccessful.
Yesterday night,, Ruger made his appearance and allegedly insulted Don Jazzy, though he has denied it.
In the past, there have been rumors that Don Jazzy has never supported Ruger because D Prince, Don Jazzy’s brother who signed Ruger, refused to hand him over to Don Jazzy like he did with Rema.
Now, however, it has been proven that this is not the case.
Buju, who has a history of conflict with Ruger, was aware that Ruger was impersonating Don Jazzy throughout their performance.
But he saw it as an opportunity to target Ruger with allegation that he buys streams; the number of views on his new song’s video on YouTube is more than five times more than the number of streams it has received on Spotify.

Blaqbonez, too, accused Ruger of being involved in the scandal. Fans share screenshots of other artists, such as Burna Boy, Fireboy, and Davido, who achieved one million views for some songs in a single day but are still only at 1.7 million streams on YouTube two years later.
Don Jazzy, Olamide, and Asake, amongst others, are among those who have been accused of supporting stream farms (companies that automatically pitch a song at number 1 on streaming platforms).
