Ruggedman, a Nigerian rapper and social activist, believes that young Nigerians are serious about participating in the Big Brother Naija reality programme because they have more to contribute than the Nigerian government.
The rapper also said in an interview with Saturday Beats that the government is still in denial regarding the fatalities and shootings of peaceful protestors at Lekki Tollgate in Lagos State in October 2020.
He said, “I think the only reason the Nigerian youths are so serious about BBN is because of the transparency is also because of the fact that they know their votes count.
They also know that at the end of the day, the organisers fulfil their promises. That is why people are so serious about it.
Can you say that about the Nigerian government? So that is why I said the Nigerian government has a lot to prove to the people, to show transparency, to show competence, to live up to expectations and also fulfil the promises they made.
The Nigerian government needs to earn the trust of the people, especially the youths.
“Till today we are still trying to find out who shot at the protesters at the toll gate in 2020. A year after the incident, we still have not heard anything about it.
There are so many things the government needs to come through with first before the youths will trust them”.
Ruggedman, who has also appeared in a few films, stated that he had always wanted to show that he could succeed in the film industry.
“Ruggedman is the next actor in tow,” the rapper stated excitedly.
I was in “Bad comments” by Jim Iyke, I also featured in Toyin Abraham’s ‘Ghost and the tout too.” I am open for more movie roles. It is something I have always wanted to do.
