Controversial Nigerian dancehall singer, Ahmedu Augustine better known as Blackface is again in the news after he accused Grammy-winning act, Wizkid and his former label boss, Banky W of intellectual theft.

The music star who was a member of the now-defunct music group, Plantashun Boiz alleged that the duo stole his song, “I Like The Way”.

Blackface was reacting to a tweet by Wizkid in response to a recent interview granted by his erstwhile label boss, Banky W regarding the former’s exit from Empire Mates Entertainment (E.M.E), among other issues.

The music executive turned politician, who was on a guest on BlackBox Interview series hosted by Ebuka, had revealed that he was disappointed that Wizkid failed to attend his wedding. In response, the Grammy-winning musician simply tweeted “LOL”.

Quoting Wizkid’s tweet, Blackface claimed that he has scores to settle with the mega star and his former mentor over alleged theft of his song.

“2 of una know say we get unfinished business for jacking my song “I like the way’ Make una call me,” he tweeted on Friday.

It would be recalled that following the split of Plantashun Boiz in 2004, the singer had maintained a long-time beef with his former group member, legendary musician 2Baba.
