What’sup guys! Former Plantashun Boiz member, Blackface just dropped his version of the controversial “Africa Queen” the one he claimed former bandmate, Tuface stole from him 15 years ago.
Blackfacenaija has been consistent in his allegations, accusing Tuface Idibia of stealing his song, the smash hit “Africa Queen” that was dropped back in 2004 by Mr. Idibia.
Ever since that record dropped 15 years ago, Blackfacenaija has been a pain in the ass of Tuface, always claiming to be the original composer of that song.
This is the reason behind the release of his own version, to finally lay to rest his claim of being the owner of the song Tuface stole from him.
The singer (Blackfacenaija) took to his Instagram page few days ago to pen down his reason for wanting to release his version of the song. Read below:
“Finally my#versionof#africanqueenwill soon be available on all platforms worldwide…just to clear the air again …I gave the initial singer the right to sing the song but I never got credited as a writer by the label that released it nor any acknowledgement from the singer while the song did so many numbers and won many awards since 2003/4 till date
The singer included a third verse he wrote to the music when it was produced by OJB but I took that verse out and included the third I had written to make this version of mine totally written by self ….I can’t wait for you all to feel this one#produced
However, in a recent concert in Festac, (a residential area in Lagos) 2face and Blackface met on stage and called a truce to their disagreement. On that stage, Blackface promised to stop haunting 2face and drop all allegations against him. But to everyone’s greatest surprise, the singer announced the release of his own version of “African Queen” yesterday and it has been causing a major uproar on the internet leading to questions.
Could 2face and Blackface have struck a gentleman’s agreement for the latter to release his own version? No answer seems forthcoming, maybe not just yet. Meanwhile, we have provided the audio of Blackface’s “African Queen” version below, the reggae-inspired song sounds brilliantly too.
