5. Ruggedman – Ehen (vs Eedris, Remedies, Maintain)
Ruggedman burst into the scene with no kind of a fear of face at all for anyone, and it showed in his epic diss track, Ehen. He came out swinging for the big names in the industry at the time. The likes of Eedris Abdulkareem, Maintain and Rasqui all took hits from what Ruggedy Baba was serving. That really put him on a whole new level in Nigerian hip-hop at the time, and gained a large following.
“No be secret say remedies dey need remedy, I hear their rap, I laugh, to me nah like comedy/ Eedris and my 5 year old nephew rap the same way, like say dem born dem on the same day/ Wetin him dey talk I no hear, but I fear, when him “migity” and people start to cheer”
In today’s world, the song might not seem like a big deal, but at the time that it was released, and the age of hip-hop in Nigeria, it was a really big deal. Rugged still does music till date, albeit not on the same level.
