Blackface, ex-member of the music group, ‘Plantashun Boiz’ has taken legal action against former colleagues and music partners, 2face Idibia, Faze and Ruggedman over song theft.

According to Blackface, the three have been performing songs written by ‘Plantashun Boiz’ and himself.

His legal team cautioned the former bandmates, 2Baba, Faze and rapper, Rugged Man to stop performing his songs. 

Blackface said their actions can lead to damaging the image of the ‘Plantashun Boiz’.

He also posted an official letter from the court suing 2face, Faze and Rugged man of impending copyright violation. 

See the letter below:

 

The letter is to prevent them from performing any song by the Plantashun Boiz without his permission being the founder and main songwriter in the group.

Blackface explained that over the years, Faze and 2baba have on several occasions, performed materials of Plantashun Boiz without proper rehearsals and this has damaged the reputation of the band. 

The letter further stated that legal action would be taken if the singers do not heed to the warnings.

The feud between Innocent Idibia popularly known as 2face or 2baba and Amedu Augustine Obiabo better known as Blackface got more heated earlier in the year when Blackface released a single titled ‘War’, which was a ‘diss’ song targeted at his former friend and bandmate, 2face Idibia.

In the song, Blackface spoke on the age-long allegations of copyright theft by 2face and his manager, Efe Omorogbe, as well as demeaning claims alleging 2face was gay (a claim he now says was just a ‘yab’).

Following the divorce of Plantashun Boiz, only one member of the group, Innocent Ujah Idibia popularly known as 2face has been able to maintain his popularity in the game.

The age-long split of the music group ‘Plantashun Boiz’ has been followed by several messy accusations. 

Right after their split, Black Face and Faze had accused 2Baba of betrayal and theft, claiming that 2Baba’s solo breakthrough hit ‘African Queen’ was a property of Plantashun Boiz.

The duo asserted that 2Baba absconded with the record as soon as the group was dissolved and released it without their approval. While Faze eventually let go of his sentiments and patched things up with 2Face, Blackface continued to be ‘frienemies’ with Idibia.

But the recent turn of events has shown Blackface doesn’t have issues only with 2face but also with Faze and Ruggedman.
