Speaking to PREMIUM TIMES, Ruggedy Baba, as he is fondly called, confirmed details of the deal.

“The endorsement only comes with a plot of land said to be worth N50 million.

No physical cash involved, as mistakenly written by a blogger earlier today,” he said.

The award-winning rapper has released several hit singles in the past and is seen as one of the pioneers of the Nigerian Rap industry.
