Former member of the disbanded Plantashun Boiz group, Blackface has accused Wizkid, Burna Boy and Asake of intellectual property theft.
During an interview with the Naija FM in Lagos, the artist known for his hit song “Ghetto Child”, claimed that the trio had sampled his songs without obtaining his permission.
According to Blackface, Wizkid and Burna Boy’s song “Ginger” closely resembles his track “Twist & Turn” in terms of rhythm, beat and the way the melody begins and ends. He noted that only the verses were altered.
Furthermore, Blackface accused Asake of sampling his song “Ikebe Supa” in ‘Joha’, stating that he serves as an inspiration to these artists.
The singer who once called out 2face clarified that he does not oppose young artists sampling his work, but he takes issue with lack of permission and proper acknowledgment in the process.
