All is definitely still not well with former Plantashun Boiz members, 2face Idibia and Blackface. Blackface continues to wage war against his former band member and Nigerians are tired of him.
2face Idibia has once again reacted to recent outburst by his former band member, Blackface as their long standing beef continues to gain momentum. Blackface who claims to have built the name Plantashun Boiz is accusing 2face and his manager, Efe Omorogbe of stealing his song titled ‘Let Somebody Love You’.
In this new interview on Max FM, 2face simply says, ‘na only Black fit explain the problem he get with me’. Both musicians already have a case in court over copyright infringement.
Earlier this month, Blackface took to his Instagram page to declare total war on 2face. He wrote: Can the #WAR officially begin @official2baba ? I say it has now #officially… even though you been taking secret shots but you can come out in the open now. You know your career is going to end when this is finally over #youareoverwith2019
Last year, Blackface revealed he was being sued for N50m by 2face Idibia. The ‘Hard Life’ singer says 2face is suing him over his age-long claim that he wrote ‘Let Somebody Love You’ and ‘African Queen’.
In a post on Instagram, Blackface wrote: “2face Idibia @official2baba & his manager Efe Omorogbe @efeomorogbe sued me for 50Million. “They (are) claiming I didn’t write #letsomebodyloveyou & #africanqueen (and) what else? “Just about time me and my legal team (file) for #mydefence. After which I will release my album #risingsun (defendervol2).”
It is no longer news that that for the better part of last year, they threw several brickbats at each other, especially with Blackface accusing 2face of stealing his song(s). In the thick of the quarrel, many expected people such as a former member of the defunct band, Faze, to intervene in the quarrel and prevail on them to stop washing their dirty linen in public.
However, in an interview with Sunday Scoop, Faze stated that he made moves to get both singers to sheathe their swords. He said, “I actually tried to make peace between 2face and Blackface. I called them on several occasions and asked them to settle the issue amicably. However, they have some unresolved issues between them and I think they would settle their differences in due time. Even brothers have rifts; so, there is nothing unusual about it.
“2face and Blackface are from the same area and they were even together before I came into the picture. They know how to relate with each other and would come around.”
Do you believe Blackface actually wrote ‘Let somebody love you’?
