Tuface to sue Blackface over allegation of song theft
Music superstar, Tuface Idibia popularly called 2baba, has threatened a legal suit against his former band member, Blackface, for accusing him of song theft.
2Baba, in a letter sent through his lawyers, demanded that Blackface apologises for making ‘false, misleading and the defamatory’ remarks about him.
It stated that Blackface (real name Ahmedu Augustine) should tender a general unreserved apology for all statements made and published by him in the past as well as cease form making further defamatory remarks.
He gave Blackface a one-week ultimatum to retract his statements or face legal actions.
According to media reports, Blackface recently claimed ownership of 2Baba’s 2014 hit ‘Let Somebody Love You.’
He also argued that he wrote the award-winning ‘African Queen’ song for 2Baba, and he was yet to be compensated.
He accused 2Baba of stealing his songs like “Let Somebody Love You” and the mega-hit, “African Queen”.
He also made other allegations recently on Instagram accusing 2Baba of trying to sabotage his career.
The warring artistes were members of the Plantashun Boiz’ squad that released the popular albums ‘Body and Soul’ and ‘Sold Out’ in the years 2000 and 2003 respectively.
After the disbandment of ‘Plantashun Boyz’ in 2004, its members started their solo careers.
However, ten years after the break-up, the “Faze vs Tuface” beef, has continued unabated. NAN
