Even though the started out as members of one of Nigeria’s foremost music groups – Plantashun Boiz, 2Face Idibia & Blackface are now sworn enemies, with the latter never missing an opportunity to call out 2Baba.
Just last week he called 2Baba, “a two faced, lazy and filled with hate”
And now he has confirmed he is suing the renowned music legend for content theft for the song – Let Somebody Love You which features American singer Bridget Kelly. He made this known in an interview with Premium Times saying,
My legal team is working on that, as that’s the best way to go. When I accused them, they lied and said its ‘unfortunate’. I said they took my song and then even said maybe my account was hacked.
Well, if you thought so why didn’t you pick up your phone and say “Yo black.. . What’s going on?’ “But, no they won’t because they wanted to steal it and it backfired, and they trying to act ‘holy’ so they make flimsy excuses. 2face and his manager planned all of that.2face sang my song (Let Somebody Love You) and featured an American artiste, Bridget Kelly. His manager published it without my permission. Till today they haven’t deemed it fit to tell the world that they tried to assassinate my character in the media but that couldn’t be justice and they know. – “So, the court is our only option as they keep avoiding meetings thinking that with time it will all fade off. But, they know not what tomorrow holds and neither do I.
Blackface also says he wrote one of 2Face’s biggest hits – African Queen which he was never credited for.
