Unlike the Rema deal, Ruger is only signed to D’Prince’s Jonzing World, with no affiliation to MAVIN Records. Instead, this deal will go through Sony Music West Africa.
On January 18, 2020, D’Prince, MAVIN recording artist and Head Honcho of Jonzing world, a name derived from a single off his 2012 album, Frenzy unveiled his second artist in two years. His name is Ruger.
Ruger is a Nigerian fast-rising singer and songwriter. He is originally from Lagos State, Nigeria and came into limelight after signing a deal with Jonzing World Record.
Ruger joined his church choir as a vocalist when he was still very young. He was also a part of the school choir, and composed songs while still in secondary school, as well as performed during events.
The eminently gifted Artiste, Ruger had been working consistently on developing his musical skills.
He had released several tracks as an unsigned artiste, not until one of his songs captured the attention of Don Jazzy’s brother, D’Prince.
D’Prince who is talent management and top artiste, felt impressed by his music and decided to sign him under his record label regarded as “D’Prince Jonzing World Records”.
He made his debut in the industry with a song, One Shirt ft. D’Prince and Rema.
According to reports flying around, Ruger is still in school.
Ruger became the second artiste D’Prince will sign in the space of two years, after he signed Rema, but in Rema‘s case, he’s co-signed to Mavin Records owned by Don Jazzy.
After Ruger was signed into this record label, he was gifted an apartment and an expensive ride under the record label.
Ruger’s record label, Jonzing World, collaborates with Sony Music West Africa and Columbia Records in managing the talented artiste.
