- Just when one thought Blackface and 2baba have settled their issues, more details keep emerging about their fight
- This time, Blackface wants 2baba to go to jail
- He stylishly also told their former band mate Faze to stay away from their beef
It appears Blackface is not done with his attacks on 2baba Idibia. The former Plantashun Boiz member while speaking in a recent interview called for more stringent punishment for those who steal songs from other musicians.
He further went on to say that he appreciates his former band mate Faze’s effort to help settle the issue between him and 2baba but it is not his place to apologise since he didn’t do anything wrong.
“Faze is my friend and he is going to do his own bit. But, one thing that he does not know is that who feels it, knows it. He didn’t write the song, I did. So he does not know what I am talking about. It is easy for him to call for peace. But then, it is the duty of the offender to apologise for his action. I can’t keep quiet about what happened because I haven’t offended anybody. I have not stolen anybody’s song,” he told Hip TV.
He also alluded that 2baba should be in jail for stealing his song.
“Had the Federal Government introduced an appropriate punishment for stealing other people’s songs, many music artistes would be in trouble today. If the penalty required offenders to spend some years in jail, many so-called big artistes would be in prison by now. Some of them steal songs from fellow musicians based in the country or abroad and pass them off as their own. This is very bad for culture and the creative sector. It is also bad enough for the honest and hardworking Nigerian artiste who goes through a lot of trouble to survive. Whatever the government decides, the courts are there to ensure that justice prevails. If you find yourself on the wrong side of the law, you will have to accept the consequence of your actions.”
Here’s hoping these two settle their issues in the coming future.
