Micheal Stephens, the Nigerian rapper and social advocate, who is popularly known as Ruggedman has opined that young Nigerians are serious about partaking in Big Brother Naija reality show because they have more to offer than the Nigerian government.

In an interview with Saturday Beats, the rapper further said the government is still in denial about the killings and shooting of peaceful protesters at Lekki Tollgate, 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. It 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 featured in a couple of movies, said he had always wanted to prove that he could also excel in the movie industry. With an excited voice, the rapper said “Ruggedman is the latest actor in town. 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. I have played extra roles in some movies back in the days. I am also in Moses Inwang’s web series.

“My acting experience is good and exciting because I have always wanted to do it and I wanted to let them know that I can do it. Even Toyin Abraham was surprised at how well I played my role. Abraham said I did well, I was especially happy working with the likes of Mama Gee, Odunlade Adekola, Iyabo Ojo, Mercy Johnson and other talented actors.”
