I owe my success in Nigerian music to God, Rugged Man- Mbryo

“I felt really elated considering the greatness of the Original version of the song, coupled with the fact that both Artistes (Ruggedman and 9ice) on the song are people ı respect so much. It was an honour to say the least,” a smiling Mbryo told PREMIUM TIMES.
