In a recent interview with Hip TV, veteran Nigerian rapper, Michael Ugochukwu Steven, popularly known as Ruggedman, raised an important point about the current state of Nigerian music.

He expressed his concern that the genre rarely conveys meaningful messages in contemporary times.

Instead, he observed that Nigerian Afrobeats singers seem to prioritize captivating beats over lyrical content.


The Call for Conscious Music: As a human rights activist, Ruggedman emphasized the potential impact of Nigerian music on a global scale.

With millions of people, including non-Nigerians, embracing Afrobeat music, he stressed the importance of leveraging this platform to promote positive ideals.

He specifically called upon prominent artists like Davido, Burna Boy, and Wizkid, among others, to infuse consciousness into their songs and advocate for themes such as peace, creativity, and positivity.

Inspiring Change through Music: Ruggedman acknowledged that not every artist should have the same approach or mindset.

He emphasized the significance of inspiration, whereby conscious musicians can motivate those who are solely focused on danceable tunes.


By weaving thoughtful messages into their music, these artists can reach a broader audience and potentially spark positive change on a massive scale.

Conclusion: With the global popularity of Afrobeats, the potential influence of Nigerian music artists is undeniable.

Ruggedman’s plea to icons like Wizkid, Burna Boy, and Davido holds the prospect of inspiring millions of listeners worldwide.

As they continue to create music that entertains and uplifts, integrating consciousness into their songs can lead to a more profound and lasting impact on society.

It remains to be seen how these influential musicians will respond to this call, and whether a conscious shift in Nigerian music will be embraced in the future.
