Blackface has filed a case of copyright theft against the duo of Wizkid and Banky W, for allegedly stealing his song.
The case is for the copyright infringement of his song, ‘Like The Way’, which he claims was replicated by Wizkid on ‘Slow Whine’ off his Superstar album.
In an Instagram post shared by Blackface late Thursday, August 16, he made available a lawsuit filed by himself as the Plaintiff with Empire Mates Entertainment Limited, Starboy Entertainment Limited, Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun [A.K.A Wizkid] and Olubankole Wellington [A.K.A Banky W] as defendants.
In a related post, he shared both songs and stated his reasons for the lawsuit.
”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.”
