Blackface – one third of Plantashun Boiz released a diss track titled ‘War’ days ago, targeted at 2baba where he alleged that the later is ‘gay’. 2baba Idibia’s management has responded in a statement, The statement in part read:
“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.
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.”
Blackface is insisting that 2baba’s manager Efe Omorogbe be removed as a co-writer for ‘Let Somebody Love You’ released iver two years ago but 2baba and team have maintained that Efe wrote the last verse for the said record with Blackface disagree-ing.
