Ruggedman Receives African Integrity Award 


While some Nigerian entertainers were receiving and celebrating their Headies awards, Ruggedman was honoured with a very special award. 

The entertainer, who just got back from Cross River State, where he kicked off the first edition of his 9-City PlayStation 4 virtual soccer competition “Rugged Premier League”, received The African Integrity Prize for Integrity in Art.

African Integrity prize honours Africa’s best, noble men and women, companies and institutions with exceptional integrity.

Ruggedman, who sometime ago was made a United Nations Peace Ambassador, has added this new feather to his cap, courtesy of the African Child Foundation.

It is obvious there is more to Michael Ugochukwu Stephen’s than just entertainment.

He is one of the very few Nigerian entertainers, who go above and beyond being a celebrity to being a voice for the voiceless and is always giving back to the community.

Apart from revolutionising the Nigerian music industry, despite all the controversies, he is a humanitarian. He has a big heart and he is special.

Congratulations Ruggedman. Keep making a difference. We need more role models like you.
