In a surprising turn of events, popular Nigerian singer Michael Olayinka, better known by his stage name Ruger, paid a courtesy visit to Bingham University in Karu, Nasarawa State.
Accompanied by his team, the young artist met with the esteemed Vice Chancellor, Professor William Barnabas Qurix, resulting in an unexpected encounter.
The visit took an amusing twist when Prof Qurix expressed his astonishment at Ruger’s physical appearance.
The Vice Chancellor admitted that he had always imagined the musician, whom he had seen on television, to be a larger-than-life figure.
However, upon meeting Ruger in person, he was taken aback by the singer’s relatively small stature.
A video capturing the memorable moment of their interaction has since gone viral, showcasing the genuine surprise on Prof Qurix’s face.
The footage depicts the Vice Chancellor warmly welcoming Ruger with a handshake, while expressing his disbelief at the singer’s smaller frame.
“I can’t believe this; I can’t believe you are a small boy. Welcome, I thought he was going to be one mighty man,” he said.
He was clearly caught off guard by the singer’s physical appearance.
