Blackface, whose real name is Ahmedu Augustine had earlier accused 2Baba of intellectual property theft, adding that he is yet to receive compensation for writing the song - "African Queen."
In an interview which he granted Premium Times, he said “2face sang my song (Let Somebody Love You) and featured an American artiste, Bridget Kelly. His manager published it without my permission. Till today they haven’t deemed it fit to tell the world that they tried to assassinate my character in the media but that couldn’t be justice and they know. So, the court is our only option as they keep avoiding meetings thinking that with time it will all fade off. But, they know not what tomorrow holds and neither do I.”
2Baba, through his counsel's firm Seun Omotoba & Co, in a letter dated May 5, 2017, asked Blackface to tender an unreserved apology for all the comments which he made against the singer.
According to Premium Times, Blackface was given a 7 day ultimatum to apologise or be sued.
He was also warned in the letter not to make any further defamatory statement against their client.
