In the early 2000’s, there was a famous ‘boy-band’ of three in Nigeria called Plantashun Boiz (Black Face, 2 Face and Faze).
They made pretty great songs and gave us hit tracks like “Say you believe” “Anthem” amongst others.
Since their breakup several years ago, they are always in the news every now and then and they are in the news yet again and no, there’s no reunion brewing soon but a feud and plenty of bad bloods between two of the members – 2Face and Black Face
Ahmedu Obiabo also known as “BlackFace” released a single recently which he titled “War”. In this song, he accused Tu(2)face of stealing his song and also blocking him from getting gigs . Some Lyrics from the song include:
“ you were my student years ago
i thought you how to rhyme thought you how to flow
now you say you’re a star and you getting dough
why you steal my song ?you no let me know
na you and your manager wey dey block my show from every carnival
your mama say you’re innocent but i know say you be cannibal
na fame you want purchase ?
sold your glory for the crown now its knocking on your conscience
so you start singing nonsense”
The song which was released on Monday, 18th of March 2019 was produced by Eben. The record came with lots of threats and accusations as well.
Recall that the genesis of this feud came up in 2014 after African Queen was released. This song was definitely a hit track in 2004. However, Black Face argued that he was the original composer of the song and he owned copyrights on the song. It wasn’t only “African Queen” but also “Let Somebody Love you” that Blackface said he owned copyrights
