BLACKFACE FILES A 100 MILLION NAIRA LAWSUIT AGAINST WIZKID AND BANKY W

The Nigerian raggae singer and songwriter, blackface drags popular Nigerian singer, wizkid and Banky W to court over what he calls a copyright infringement.


He stated that Wizkid's "Slow Whine" off his debut "Superstar" album, is a reproduction of his song "Like the Way". And hence demanded over a hundred million naira off the suit.

He took to his Instagram page to post photos of document from the case, which he captioned;

"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."

We trust the court will make the right decision.
