Michael Adebayo Olayinka popularly known as Ruger, is a Nigerian Afrobeat singer, and songwriter. 

In a recent interview, Ruger revealed the main reason behind his one eye signature look.

He said: ” My name is Ruger. I don’t shoot literally but musically I shoot. The way a sniper closes one eye to aim and hit their target is how I am with my music, one eye is shut so I can focus well, aim and hit right with my songs and projects.”

Reacting to his colleague Rema going back to school after he took a break for his music career, Ruger said his school plans are still on the shelves but not a closed chapter.

“Rema recently went back to school, I know. However, my plans towards furthering your education is personal. I’d do it when I want to do it and I guess you will know when it happens,” he stated.

Asked if there no pressure his parents concerning your education, the Dior Crooner answered thus, “Honestly, I won’t call it ‘pressure’. My parents are understanding of the situation and encouraged me. In the period of seeking admission into the university, I got working, just to gain knowledge from other fields. I worked at the popular Computer Village in Lagos. I started as an apprentice at a store that fixed phones before becoming an engineer after some months. I gained all that knowledge, learnt some new things, so there wasn’t any pressure whatsoever and by the third year, I met D’Prince.”

Ruger came into lime-light 2021 after he signed a record deal with D’Prince “Jonzing world record” with a publishing and distribution deal with Columbia Records, and Sony Music Entertainment, U.K division.

He is unarguably the head of Nigeria’s new school talent at the moment and his latest single, Dior is currently one of the hottest songs in Nigeria.
