Taking to the social media platform, Twitter on Friday morning, Blackface real name Ahmedu Augustine Obiabo admonished both musicians to call him so that they can settle their differences.
“2 of una know say we get unfinished business for jacking my song “I like the way’ Make una call me,” Blackface wrote while responding to Wizkid’s famous ‘lol’ tweet to Banky W’s recent interview on the microblogging site, Twitter.
