He shed light on his meticulous pre-show routine.

“Before I kick off my America tour, I used to go to Eko Atlantic and run like four times, get back into my car and go home. So, it helps my energy. I make sure I ate well, slept well. Prayer too. Fasting and prayer just to be prepared spiritually,” he revealed.

I’m a Christian. I pray even before I go on stage to perform. It is just work. We are allowed to party. It’s just like I’m partying. I’m not a bad person. The fact that I dance with girls on stage doesn’t mean I’m a bad person.”

Addressing concerns about the nature of his performances, Ruger clarified that his team takes measures to ensure the age appropriateness of those joining him on stage.

“Before I bring any girl on stage, my team checks to make sure they are above 21,” he added.
