The misunderstanding between Nigeria singers, 2face Idibia and Ahmedu Augustine aka blackface, former members of the defunct music group, Plantashun Boiz, has taken a legal turn.
Recall that their dispute started as a social media rant a few years ago when Blackface came out to accuse 2face Idibia of stealing some of his songs and refused to give him credit. It got messy and they’ve had to call each other out on social media on a couple of occassions.
In May 2017, legal counsel to 2face Idibia and his manager, Efe Omorege wrote a letter to Blackface, instructing him to apologize for all the accusation laid against them over time or get sued within seven days of receiving the letter.
Blackface responded to them by saying ‘Go to hell’.
Now, 2face and his manager have filed a lawsuit against Blackface at the Ikeja High Court suing him for N50 million naira.
According to Blackface, ‘2face Idibia and his manager Efe Omorogbe sued me for 50Million They are claiming I didn’t write #letsomebodyloveyou & #africanqueen and what else? Just about time me and my #legalteam filed for #mydefence After which I will release my album #risingsun (defendervol2)’.
However, Blackface was contacted to confirm the news.In a WhatsApp call, the confirmed to Potpourri that his legal team is taking care of the lawsuit, and that he’s prepared to meet 2face in court.
“My lawyers are taking care of the legal action. Maybe you will be in court to follow up the proceedings, if the case gets to that level because that’s where we are going right now,” Blackface said.
