Veteran singer-songwriter and ex-member of the defunct Plantashun Boiz, Ahmedu Augustine Obiabo, better known as Blackface, has accused Wizkid, Burna Boy, and Asake of intellectual property theft.

Blackface made the allegations during a recent interview with Naija FM in Lagos.

“Ginger’ by Wizkid and Burna [Boy] is [a sample of] my track ‘Twist & Turn’; the rhythms, the beat, how the melody starts and ends. Na only the verses dem change,” he said.

Blackface also accused Asake of sampling his song ‘Ikebe Supa’ in ‘Joha.’

“Asake’s ‘Joha’ is [a sample of] my song ‘Ikebe Supa.’ I dey inspire them,” he said.

The veteran singer said he is not against young artists sampling his songs, but the manner in which they go about it without seeking his permission
