Blackface is hoping the law will do well to uphold the justice he seeks against 2face over copyright infringement and theft allegations.
This follows his being served papers from Idibia’s lawyers asking him to tender a public apology for making defamatory statements against 2face accusing him of song theft and copyright infringement.
This time he accuses the ‘African queen’ singer of bribing the media and attempting to gain sympathy from the public and media by posting the letters online among other gist.
Responding to the NET on several questions thrown at him regarding the 2face quagmire.
Blackface addresses 2face’s manager Efe Omorogbe claim to have written the song ‘African queen’, saying Efe was never in the picture during the era of the Plantashun Boiz.
“Efe Omorogbe claims to be a writer in that song. How can Omorogbe say he wrote my song when I was in Plantashun Boiz. Where did Efe Omorogbe come from? Where was he when I started my career?”
On why it is taking long for him to take legal actions against 2face, the ‘Erema’ singer says a court hearing will be happening in a few weeks.
‘’The court has already served him the documents. You should be at the court hearing in a few weeks don’t worry.’’
Blackface rules out jealousy as the reason for going after 2face in this light, boasts that he isn’t envious, after all he has broken other artists in the industry that went on to become famous and successful, dropping names like Mallam Spicy, Roc Steady and Weird MC.
"Why would I be jealous of 2face? I have made so many artistes famous, for instance, I made Roc Steady and Mallam Spicy famous, they are making money and are famous, so why would I be jealous. I have worked with people like Weird MC as well."
"So what are they saying? At that time, only 2face knew my song, if he wanted to use my song, he should have just said, I want to record the song, and when he went on TV and was asked about me, he said he doesn’t want to talk about Blackface because he has something to hide."
Blackface said 2face and his team are out looking for public sympathy, not seeing any reason why the letter served him by 2face’s legal team should be posted online.
"This is what I have been saying but all they are just trying to do is hide it, and then they are trying to seek public sympathy by posting a letter which they are meant to show in court in the papers, you are posting it on social media, but I don’t care and I know that people are going to say shit about me but I don’t care, he says."
Blackface also is accusing 2face of copying his music video concept and also bad-mouthing him to the media, telling them not to play any of his songs.
"They pay those creepy agents to write shit about me, If I have a war with 2face, It should not affect people on radio playing my music, because when I put out my last video, I went to promote it on radio but when I was having the interview, they came and disrupted the interview because they had gone round to copy my video (where they featured Phyno), yes they copied my concept."
"They also went round during their tour and were telling people not to play my music, that is why they call themselves bad sharp guy or very good bad guys, tell them I said they are not sharp enough, they don’t know nothing yet."
2face has not bought you guys over but he may have bought your boss over.
I don’t care because I know most of you media personalities are creepy agents. Especially people that work on the radio. You guys should be asking 2Face and Efe if I gave them the right to call my song his own, but unfortunately , 2face took my song and his manager decided that they should put his name on the song as the writer.
And when I confronted them about it, they put up a story saying my account was hacked.
On 2face’s success, Blackface takes glory in claims that he taught the ‘Implication’ singer how to make music.
"I taught him how to make a whole lot of music, because when I met him, nobody knew who he was, so I taught him what he had to do, but I never envisaged that he will turn out to be a backstabber.
I’ve struggled with him longer than his manager. Only for him to use his manager against me? But when he doesn’t know who this guy is, or know who taught him how to make music, then it says a lot."
The aggrieved Blackface to round off his displeasure hopes the judiciary will take the necessary actions.
"Where I am from, we don’t measure the love we give out, but if 2Face thinks he is too smart or he is a bad sharp guy, you can take someone’s music and nobody will do anything, but we are in Nigeria, let us see if the judiciary will uphold the law."
