Nigerian rapper and hip-hop artiste, Michael Ugochukwu Stephens, popularly known as Ruggedman, was attacked on Friday in London at a restaurant by some alleged Yahoo boys.

Many have claimed that the talented rapper who is vocal for his fight against "Yahoo Yahoo" was beaten by boys in ties with Nigerian singer, Afeez Fashola, also known as Naira Marley.

Recall that the "Am I a Yahoo Boy?" crooner was recently released by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission [EFCC] for his alleged involvement in online fraud following his controversial Instagram video a few weeks ago, where he encouraged online fraud and claimed online fraud circulates money in the economy.

Ruggedman immediately called out the other rapper, warning him not to encourage cybercrimes.

In the attack video that has now gone viral online, the rapper was seen struggling to get free from his attackers as they violently flung chairs at him.

Ruggedman has come out to thank his fans, assuring them that he is fine now and will not stop the fight against fraud.
