Meanwhile, Nigerian musician, Augustine Ahmedu, also known as Blackface issued stern warning to the entire music industry to desist or avoid stealing his songs.
Through the years, the former member of Plantashun Boiz has accused different artistes of stealing his songs, the first being his ex-group mate, Tubaba.
In the latest one of such accusations, Blackface claimed Afrobeats sensation, Asake and Wizkid have recreated songs that belong to him.
He said that from now henceforth, he will be taking legal approach to the matter instead of begging people to give him credit for his songs.
He said; The time I released the songs (that were allegedly stolen) are online. I don’t want to trend; I just want people to stop touching my music without my permission.
I am begging them to stop. I cannot be competing with myself. Many of them plan shows, and they intentionally don’t invite me. They should just give me the credit I deserve.
The singer also stated that he was still giving the people involved some time before escalating the matter.
Blackface said; We have to improve on what we do to get better. Some members of the public don’t take me seriously because they are not the ones that copy my songs. The ones who copy my songs are not finding it funny.
I have not taken the cases to court because I’m still giving them benefit of the doubt for them to retrace their steps. If they don’t do so, I will instruct my lawyer to commence legal action against them.
