Blackface has sued Banky W and his former artiste under EME, Wizkid for intellectual property theft.
In a statement where he expressed his grievances, he said he has remained quiet while his name has been dragged in the mud by fellow artistes for the past few years. He also said that some of Nigeria’s biggest artists have infringed on his copyrights but he always restricted himself to speaking out against this in the media.
When trying to explain his reason for not speaking pot early, he claimed he has always felt that music is an art and not really a business where you have to involve lawyers. According to him, he couldn’t believe he was sued for N50m by the same people who stole his intellectual property.
He also claimed not to have anything personal against Wizkid & Banky W saying that he grooves to both their music other than the fact that they stole his music in 2011 and he has clear evidence to prove it.
