Nigerian singer, Blackface Naija, has recently accused fellow musician Wizkid of avoiding litigation by staying away from Nigeria.

Wizkid Avoiding Nigeria For Stealing My Song - Blackface Claims  Talk Glitz reported that BlackFace recently called out Asake for remixing his song JOHA without his permission.

Following this, in a recent interview, Blackface recalled he accused Wizkid and Banky W in 2016 over the stolen intellectual property from him by copying his song “I Like The Way” in making “Slow Whine” and sampling his song titled “Twist and Turn” for “Ginger,” a track from his “Made In Lagos” album featuring Burna Boy.

He also announced on social media that he had sued the singer for copyright infringement.

He stated that he has not received any response from Wizkid and Banky W since he called them out and alleged that Wizkid is avoiding the country to avoid being served a lawsuit.

He also spoke on his allegations against Asake and his label boss, Olamide, for ripping off his song “Ikebe Super” for the song “Joha.”

He said, “I called them (Wizkid and Banky W) out for sampling my song ‘I Like The way’ which they changed to Slow Whine without my permission.

From that time, they have not reached out to me till today, in fact, I think that is the reason why Wizkid is not staying in Nigeria, he knows he will get served, so they are running up and down from Ghana to Benin Republic to Togo, nobody can find them yet, but once we see them and find out where we can reach them, we will serve them”

“I called out Olamide then because he is the CEO of the record label. Asake is under (his label) and he was the one that produced the music.

I reached out to them but they never responded that’s why I called them out just for them to know that what they are doing is bad, our industry cannot be on that path where you have to copy to write.”

“I released a song in 2020 in the album called ‘Defender’ it’s only normal for them to go and take my music because they like my music, so they always copy my music and give it to their producers to remake it. It’s not only Asake that has done this, so many others have been doing this”
