Blackface is dragging popular Nigerian singers, Wizkid and Banky W, to court for what he calls copyright infringement.
This is for the EME Records’ 2011 song, ‘ Slow Whine’ , which he says is a reproduction of his song, ‘Like the Way.’ He therefore demands over a Hundred Million Naira, off the suit.
He made this known in an Instagram post, where he posted legal documents from the case.
See what he wrote below:
I have remained quiet while my name has been dragged in the mud the past few years.
Some of Nigeria’s biggest artists have infringed on my copyrights but I always restricted myself to speaking out against this in the media.
Maybe because I always felt that music is an art and not really a business where you bring in lawyers and all that.
That’s why I couldn’t believe when I was sued for N50m by the same people who stole my intellectual property.
I have nothing personal against Wizkid & Banky, in fact I can say I groove to both their music, but the fact is that they stole my song in 2011 and there’s clear evidence to prove it. We’ll allow the Court to decide.
Well, guess the court is the best place to settle disputes. They will decide.
