Blackface speaks out as 2Baba withdraws N50m defamation lawsuit against him

Former member of the defunct music group Plantashun Boys, Blackface has revealed what led to his settlement with ex-member 2Baba outside the court proceedings.

The singer said that after listening to the lawyers he realized using the word ‘thief’ to describe 2Baba was not right.

This is coming after 2Baba withdrew a N50m defamation lawsuit against him and settled out of court.

He added that as the suit was dropped, he had admitted that they had also been wrong with the song writer credits amongst other things. 

He wrote: 

“No be say i too talk my people but I’m just trying to inspire somebody or ‘trying to make common sense’ like Mr Ben Bruce would say My people “Don’t sleep on your rights” and users of peoples works make sure the writers and contributors are credited properly When you speak out, things happen and that’s why I said I will be done with this issues this year 2019 and behold here we are…

I can say that the 50 Million defamation suit filed against me by Mr Innocent Idibia aka 2face and his manager Mr Efe Omorogbe has been settled out of court as they both have withdrawn their case filed against me It’s true that they sang my song without permission and truly it pissed me off, but that doesn’t legally make them thieves as the lawyers made me to understand Sometimes the words we use matter, that’s why I apologised for using that word when my lawyers advised me…

Finally they admitted they made mistakes with my songwriters and publishers rights which they should have informed me before but they never did ,they have promised to rectify them so we wait and I hope they honour this this time and furnish me details to that effect.

To all my fans, friends, family ,followers and #BFNNation Thank you all for your support I O U guys a big concert #BFNLIC1 Can we now go back to the music ?The #album #risingsun soon be available.
