2Baba Threatens Legal Action Against Blackface Over Song Theft
2Baba, in a letter sent through his lawyers, demanded that Blackface apologises for making ‘false, misleading and the defamatory’ remarks about him.
It stated that Blackface (real name Ahmedu Augustine) should tender a general unreserved apology for all statements made and published by him in the past as well as cease form making further defamatory remarks
He gave Blackface a one-week ultimatum to retract his statements or face legal actions.
According to media reports, Blackface recently claimed ownership of 2Baba’s 2014 hit ‘Let Somebody Love You.’
He also argued that he wrote the award-winning ‘African Queen’ song for 2Baba, and he was yet to be compensated.
He accused 2Baba of stealing his songs like “Let Somebody Love You” and the mega-hit, “African Queen”.
Both artistes were members of the Plantashun Boiz’ squad that released the popular albums ‘Body and Soul’ and ‘Sold Out’ in the years 2000 and 2003 respectively.
After the disbandment of ‘Plantashun Boyz’ in 2004, its members started their solo careers.
However, ten years after the break-up, the “Faze vs Tuface” beef, has continued unabated.
