Former Plantashun Boiz member, Blackface, has accused rising star Asake of intellectual property theft.
Blackface levelled the allegation against Asake after music director TG Omori revealed that Asake’s music video, “Joha” was shot for the sum of $165k.
Following TG Omori’s revelation, Blackface called out Asake for not acknowledging him on the song after such an amount was used to shoot the video.
According to him, no one could call the “owner of the song” to inform him, before the song was remixed.
He posted on Twitter; “You spend $165k dollars to shoot musical video for your artist. Una no fit use 100naira call the owner of the song before una remix am.
“Una dey form say una smart I believe.
“E better make una do the right thing because this one I no go sorry for una!
“I dey come.”
Blackface has always accused other artistes of stealing his songs, notable among them Tuface Idibia aka 2Baba, who he’s constantly accused of stealing the song that shot him to global stardom, African Queen, from him.
