Blackface reveals why he’s suing Wizkid and Banky W

Singer BlackFace has extended his legal troubles to Wizkid and Banky W.
Blackface who was counter-sued by former band-mate, 2Face, says Wizkid’s 2011 hit ‘Dutty Wine ‘ was a rip off of his 2010 track ‘Like The Way’.

He revealed his suing Wizkid and former label boss, Banky W, was prompted by 2Face Idibia filing a N50million lawsuit against him despite his claims of writing some of 2Face’s songs, like African Queen and Let Some body Love You’


He wrote;

“I have remained quiet while my name has been dragged in the mud the past few years. Some of Nigeria’s biggest artists have infringed on my copyrights but I always restricted myself to speaking out against this in the media. Maybe because I always felt that music is an art and not really a business where you bring in lawyers and all that.

That’s why I couldn’t believe when I was sued for N50m by the same people who stole my intellectual property.

I have nothing personal against Wizkid & Banky, in fact I can say I groove to both their music, but the fact is that they stole my song in 2011 and there’s clear evidence to prove it. We’ll allow the Court to decide.”
