Singer of defunct music group Plantashun Boiz Blackface drags Banky W and Wizkid to court for alleged copyright infringement of his song.

Blackface accused Wizkid and Banky W of stealing 2011 hit, “Slow Whine” one of the songs off his “Like the Way”.

The dancehall artiste is demanding over N100m for the copyrights infringements.

He posted a clip of the song and wrote: “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.That’s why I couldn’t believe when I was sued for N50m by the same people who stole my intellectual property.

“I have nothing personal against Wizkid & Banky, in fact I can say I groove to both their music, but the fact is that they stole my song in 2011 and there’s clear evidence to prove it. We’ll allow the Court to decide.”
