By Temitope Ojo
Dancehall and reggae singer, Blackface, has revealed that he is being sued for N50m by his former Plantashun Boyz label mate, 2face.
The Benue born singer says 2face is suing him over his claim that he wrote ‘Let Somebody Love You’ and ‘African Queen’, 2face biggest singles.
In a post on Instagram, the ‘Jungle Fever’ singer said, “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).”
Blackface, born Augustine Obiabo, has over the years accused 2face of song theft and failure to give him song writing credits for his songs.
He also accused the iconic singer of orchestrating his marginalisation in the music industry.
2face, in May 2017 asked the ‘Hard Life’ singer to apologise for making defamatory statements or face legal action.
In a letter sent through his lawyers, Seun Omotoba & Co, 2face demanded that Blackface retract his comments.
