Ruggedman recounts how he recorded ‘Ehen’ with late singer

Ruggedman, who benefited from the hook of Nomoreloss on ‘Ehen’, spoke to Pulse detailing how he contacted Nomoreloss for the hook, and why they recorded it.


Ruggedman has explained how he recorded his hit song ‘Ehen’ with the late Nomoreloss.

Nomoreloss entered public consciousness in 2002 when he featured in Ruggedman's classic cut 'Ehen'. Prior to that he was a presenter on the music TV show ''. While making a name for himself as a gifted singer, Nomoreloss also shot music videos for many Nigerian singers at the time. At the time of his death, Nomoreloss had a total of three albums.

Nomoreloss (real names Olumuyiwa Osinuga), the singer and talented songwriter died yesterday (Monday, March 21, 2016).

“It was as if everything was preordained. I just watched who’s voice, and I saw Nomoreloss doing that Hausa accent thing. I just it and said this wouldn’t be bad, and he would add some comedy to the hook.” Ruggedman said.


Nomoreloss and Ruggedman later met in Maryland, Lagos, at a club named Lords Club. They became acquainted, and worked on the song together, although they didn’t record.

“I made him sign a verbal undertaking, because I had a feeling this song would cause trouble. In case you don’t want, don’t do. But if you want, ehen.”

The song was created, and they both performed it live on stage, accompanied by a live band. The show was headlined by Lagbaja, at Motherland, Lagos. From the massive reception by the audience, Ruggedman was convinced that the song needed recording, and that was his conviction to record.
