Well, well… everyone is accusing everyone of stealing their songs, but Wizkid seems to be the target for many. First Dammy Krane, now Blackface. Nigerian entertainment is brewing with beefs this year.
Dancehall act and a former member of the singing trio, Plantashun Boyz, Ahmedu Augustine, popularly known as Blackface, has disclosed that his fellow musician, hip-hop artiste, Wizkid, has been copying many of his songs for a long time but he decided to keep quiet just to let peace reign.
The Benue State-born raga songster called on Wizkid to ‘stop stealing’ his songs.
In a recent chat with The Punch, Blackface said he decided to speak out now because he could no longer sit and watch someone else take the glory for his efforts.
He said, “I never really wanted to talk about it all this while but after people started checking out my new song, Killa, many felt Blackface sounded like Wizkid, which I didn’t like.
The latest controversy follows the release of a new song by Blackface titled Killa where he was believed to have taken a swipe on Wizkid for allegedly copying many of his songs especially two tracks from his Dancehall Business album released in 2010.
“Well, in Killa, I sang that “they tried to copy my melody,” and the bloggers got a hint of the gist and put their reports out. What I said is the truth and I am going to get to the root of this matter because I deserve justice.
“If you check properly, you would realise that Wizkid’s hit, Ojuelegba, sounds exactly the same as the track 13 on my dancehall album released as far back as 2010. You need to listen to that album to know what I am talking about. The song is so similar that I think it shouldn’t be that way.
