It looks like the feud between former band members Blackface and 2face seems to be unending, as Blackface has now blocked 2Baba on Instagram.
Sharing a screenshot to prove he has blocked 2face on his Instagram page, Blackface wrote;
Jah please #block any atom of regress this #week And more ? #happynewweek #BFNfansonly #BFNmovement ??
Blackface had recently given conditions to end the feud. In an chat with The Pulse, Blackface expressed his frustrations over the lingering feud and court case between him and the African Queen singer.
”They should also ask what is 2face after too? What is his game plan? What is his plan with Efe Omorogbe his manager, or do you think they don’t have any plan?
I have given them my conditions. See ‘Let Somebody Love You’ is my song, I told them my conditions that the manager must take his name out.”
2face Idibia’s management, Now Muzik has reacted to the recent accusations coming from singer Blackface who released a diss song titled ‘War’ few days ago.
Read statement below.
‘Contrary to the position held in some quarters that our client, Innocent Idibia, AKA 2Baba has failed or refused to respond to the ridiculous accusations by Austin Ahmedu AKA Blackface, we would like to state that this is untrue’.
What 2Baba and our founder/CEO, Efe Omorogbe have done is refuse to create time to engage in an unproductive media banter with Blackface every time he wants to release new material.
Both 2Baba and Omorogbe have stated publicly that Blackface’s claims of song theft and media/live performance blacklisting are unfounded and malicious.
Blackface has been advised to seek legal redress if he believes his claims are true and if not, cease and desist from making unsubstantiated defamatory public statements about both 2Baba and Omorogbe.
Blackface’s refusal to file a suit or discontinue the defamation forced our lawyers to institute a defamation suit against him at the Lagos State High Court. His lawyers have entered a defence and the case is currently on-going.
2Baba and Omorogbe are confident that the court will handle the matter. They will not fuel a media trial by commenting on a case that is already before a competent court of law.
For those who are perhaps unfamiliar with events, the genesis of their bitter feud dates back to when the song, ‘African Queen’ was released in 2004. The game changing single that shaped not just 2face’s career but also the music industry at the time.
According to Blackface, he was the original composer of the song and for years, this dragged on and even made its way to the courts and to be fair to Blackface, 2face has never openly made an attempt to clear himself of these allegations over the years.\
