1 Min Read

Veteran Nigerian singer Blackface has levied accusations of intellectual property theft against fellow musician Shallipopi.

In a video posted to his Instagram page on Sunday, Blackface, known for his time with Plantashun Boiz, alleged that Shallipopi sampled his song “Enemy Plan” on his recently released debut album “Shakepopi” without permission.

Blackface expressed his frustration in pidgin English, stating, “Una mean say if them no copy my sound or my melody them no go get song to sing? Ok I don make remix for una so make una better abandon this una project.” (Translation: “Are you guys saying you can’t sing a song without copying my sound or melody? Okay, I’ve already made a remix for you guys, so you better abandon this project of yours.”)
