“You sound foolish” – See the top 10 tweets attacking Ruggedman’s ‘verified’ rant

by Hauwa Gambo

This will be our Friday guilty pleasure.

So yesterday, rapper and entrepreneur Ruggedman began to a short rant on Twitter, speaking about why he has not been verified as a celebrity. Amongst others, he said, “My account can not be verified cos I have switched my handle before.Unless I get a new one n stay on it”.


Okay. Not surprisingly, the reaction on Twitter was immediate, and – oh dear Lord – so vicious.   See our top ten picks!

@iam_dQ: Ruggedman has a clothing line? i’m sure you guys means a line on where he dries his clothes in the sun..””

@LAkintobi: There needs to be a media training course for Nigerian celebrities. Foot in mouth syndrome is a huge problem.

@braxy_911: You sound foolish (˘̩̩̩.˘̩̩̩ƪ) RT @RuggedyBaba: Found out I trended tday lol. So it worked. On to d nxt one””

@ColorMeCake Your account cannot be verified because you don’t matter anymore. Stop making excuses for things that don’t matter @RuggedyBaba

@NaijaDud3 @ruggedybaba the last time u release album, Thiery Henry still dey Juventus.. If dem verify u den twitter self gass verify Alariwo of Africa

@madphury All I’m saying is, if you’ve failed at Music, Shoes and a Clothing line, an ‘unverified’ account should be the least of your f***ing worries

@je_mc2 I think Rugged Man should worry more about releasing a verified good album, than getting a verified twitter account.

@T_E_R_Y1h Many people don’t know this but Ruggedman’s CD doubles as a door wedge.

@meshachade1h Ruggedman’s mistake 12 years ago. RT@TheRollngStoner: I should be a rapper

@Miss_Jayla Abi did they pay Rugged to distract us from talking about the bomb blasts?

  1. Rugged man boast onto d scene som yrs ago yarnin rubbish abt an artist (eedris) dat has lay his life and career online for the common man. Eedris is nt a gud rapper bt who cares. Fela and bob marley where nt rappers and dey did wats ryt. Wats d essence of bein a dope lyricist if ur music dnt mek sense. Rugged man to me is full of gimmick. 2day karma is servin him ryt. Long live fela,bob marley and eedris. Peace
