Former Plantaishun Boiz member Blackface seems not to have let go of his grudge with former band mate, 2face after he revealed in a recent interview that he is getting ready to sue his estranged friend for song theft.
Blackface revealed in an interview that he is gutted that 2face and his manager Efe Omoregbe connived to steal his song titled ‘Let Somebody Love You’ featuring American songstress Bridget Kelly.
“Yes, I have; and my legal team is working on that, as that’s the best way to go. When I accused them, they lied and said its ‘unfortunate’. I said they took my song and then even said maybe my account was hacked. Well, if you thought so why didn’t you pick up your phone and say “Yo black, what’s going on?”
“But, no they won’t because they wanted to steal it and it backfired, and they trying to act ‘holy’ so they make flimsy excuses. 2face and his manager planned all of that,” Blackface said.
Continuing, the dancehall act whose career seems to have nosedived said; “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”.
Recall last year also that Blackface also pointed accusing fingers at Wizkid saying the ‘Daddy Yo’ crooner was trying to bring him down and even suggested that Wizkid’s hit song, titled ‘Ojuelegba’, sounds the same as the track 13 on one of his dancehall albums released as far back as 2010.
