This will officially signal the end to their long-term feud which began when rumours started to spread that Ruggedman was having an affair with the then wife of 9ice, Toni Payne.
As at that time 9ice refused to deny or endorse that rumour, this led to the rapper confronting the ‘Gongo Aso’ artist in a private telephone conversation which later leaked to the general public.
That single act put a further dent in the relationship between the two artists. But according to Ruggedman, he was only trying to clear his name.
However, 9ice later came out to clear the air that Rugged never slept with Toni Payne. “Ruggedman did not sleep with Toni Payne, he dares not do that,” saying in Yoruba language that “Iyawo ole ni won ma ngba’, which loosely means “it is only a lazy man’s wife that can be snatched”.
