Former Plantashun Boiz member, Amedu Augustine Obiabo, better known as Blackface says he has been sued for N50m by his former bandmate, 2Baba.
The ‘Hard Life’ singer said 2Baba is suing him after he (Blackface) claimed that he wrote ‘Let Somebody Love You’ and ‘African Queen’, one of 2Baba’s biggest hit songs.
Blackface, in a post on Instagram said: “2face Idibia @official2baba & his manager Efe Omorogbe @efeomorogbe sued me for 50Million.
“They (are) claiming I didn’t write #letsomebodyloveyou & #africanqueen (and) what else?
“Just about time me and my legal team (file) for #mydefence. After which I will release my album #risingsun (defendervol2).”
2baba had in May 2017 asked his former collaborator to apologise for making defamatory statements or face legal action.
In a letter sent through his lawyers, Seun Omotoba & Co, 2baba demanded that Blackface retract his comments.
Blackface has over the years been in loggerhead with 2Baba after several allegations that 2Baba stole his song without any crediting him.
He has accused the iconic singer of orchestrating his marginalisation in the music industry.
Blackface, 2Baba and Faze, members of Plantashun Boiz, reunited in 2007 for an album called ‘Plan B’.
