In recent weeks, there have been rumours that the track “Once Bitten, Twice Shy” off 9ice’s Tradition album gave an idea why 9ice & Toni’s marriage hit the rocks after a year and a half. Lines like ‘my girl, with a tattoo, giving my friend ‘nodding’… You are good looking but your ways are so wicked. You keep pushing me to the wall’ were thought to actually be referring to Toni Payne giving 9ice’s homie Rugged Man ‘head’
Peep the track below to listen:
Read the release from Mr Ruggedy Baba on the Phone Conversation:
It started as a rumour that 9ice caught his wife Toni Payne giving Ruggedman a blow job. I wondered where such a terrible rumour emanated from only to find out it was from 9ices song titled ”once bitten twice shy”. In the song done by my own friend, he sang that he saw his ”girl” (Not his wife Toni Payne) giving his ”friend” (Not Ruggedman) a blow job. Since 9ice himself did not mention anybody’s name in the said song I thought nothing of the evil, wicked rumour, but it spread wider and i heard a lot of people started assuming a lot and I have been called so many things by people over something i did not do.
Even some shameless soft sells unprofessionally published the rumour based on hearsay, without talking to the parties involved, but i don’t blame them. Some will publish anything just to sell.
I expected 9ice as a friend to come out and clear it up by announcing to people that it was not me he sang about in his song but till date he has not done so to reasons best known to him i guess. I called 9ice to talk about it and clear it up and he said so many things including that he will not come out and clear my name that has been dragged into a malicious rumour.
I did not want to believe that 9ice has refused to clear it up because it is helping his album sales like some people have said. I did not want to believe it but I am happy i recorded the conversation and I want you all to hear for urselves what he said to me so that this rumour can stop once and for all.
Hear 9ice himself now and know that NOTHING OF THAT NATURE EVER HAPPENED BETWEEN TONI PAYNE AND RUGGEDMAN.
Pls after this, if anybody dares to mention my name in such a thing again it’s only God that will deal with such a person. –Ruggedman
The Private Telephone Conversation you are about to listen to seems to clear up the rumours! Special thanks to the man with the goodies bag for bringing this thru
