Banky W, Wizkid Stole My Song – Blackface
Former Plantashun Boy, Blackface has sued former EME duo Banky W and Wizkid after allegations of copyright infringements on the song “slow whine” off Wizkid’s Superstar album. Blackface recently spoke out through his Instagram handle and shared a photo of the litigation order to that effect.
In case you are wondering, yes it has been seven long years since Wizkid’s debut album, Superstar, hit the shelves and on responding to reasons why it has taken so long to finally bring the issue to light, Blackface was quoted as saying “there is no wrong time to do what is right…”
Blackface who has been hailed as one of the brightest song writing talents in the country in recent history seems to have had a poor run of luck regarding this issue of copyright infringements. It might be recalled in 2004 that former labelmate “Tuface” was accused of stealing the song “African Queen” from him as well. We await further developments as they arrive.
