Wizkid ‘running’ from Nigeria to avoid litigation over alleged song theft – Blackface
NEWS DIGEST – Singer and songwriter Ahmedu Augustine Obiabo aka Blackface, has accused Afrobeats global star, Wizkid of running away from Nigeria to avoid legal action against him over alleged song theft.
Blackface made the claim in an exclusive interview with ‘The Whistler’ on Wednesday while explaining his recent outburst where he called out the YBNL boss, Olamide and his signee, Asake claiming ownership of ‘Joha’, stating he didn’t grant permission for a remix to be made.
The former member of the defunct popular R&B music group, Plantashun Boiz in 2016, accused Wizzy of copying his song “I Like the Way” in making “Slow Whine”.
Two years later, he announced on social media that he had sued Wizkid for copyright infringement.
Six years after his first accusation, Blackface yet again in 2022, accused Machala of sampling his song ‘Twist and Turn’ for ‘Ginger’, a track from Wizkid’s fourth studio album, ‘Made In Lagos’ featuring Burna Boy.
