Following the disagreement or war of word between Tu face and Blackface, the former has come out to address the incessant ramcour between them that seems not to be abetting.
Recently Blackface has threatened to sue Tu face if he ever renders any of their Plantashun Boys songs without him for his 20 years on stage anniversary slated for December 28.
Blackface has been speaking on interviews and on social media that he owns the defunt Plantashun Bois group which comprised of Tuface, Face and Blackface, and also, that he had the name trademarked.
Speaking in a recent interview with the SUN, the African queen hitmaker spoke extensively on the beef between him and his former bandmate, adding that Blackface has a problem, but no one can lay a finger on what it is.
He also urged him to sue him or shut up.
Excerpt from the interview:
Plantashun Boiz brought you into the limelight. Any hope you guys are getting back together soon?
My brother, that whole episode is just unfortunate. I am the one still keeping the Plantashun Boiz’s name alive today. You understand? My original idea was ‘let us do some solo stuff and still do stuff together as Plantashun Boiz’. It would have been blissful, nobody (can) hold anybody down. But there was an unfortunate turn of events; I don’t want to go there. It makes me very sad. It is a mental problem; Plantashun Boiz have mental problem (laughter).
What do you miss about Plantashun Boiz?
Those beginning days were awesome! The laughter, the jokes and many things like, you know; but apart from that, we have all grown and moved on.
Recently, Blackface released a controversial audiotape. What is your take on that?
Let me put it like this, you just go on air and start spinning lies. I have never said or done anything bad to Blackface, but he just goes on air and starts lying all the time because he wants to spread hate.
It is a smear campaign. He keeps saying he is going to sue me, so I am saying sue me! You know say I no thief your song, you just want people to hate me. Stop the nonsense.
Anytime he comes on air, ask him ‘wetin im do wey make me sue am? Ask am whether I no write am letter before say guy stop this thing, I did not steal your song’.
What have I done to him? He just hates me. It has become an obsession and it is not healthy for him anymore and there is nothing I can say or do to help his dilemma, so I don’t know. It is not like I am giving up, but it is all up to him now.
He has to free himself from that bondage. Everyday, he keeps digging himself into this mess and now he has kids growing up.
It is unfortunate. Before, I was quiet but he is always blabbing. Had I taken it serious from the beginning, we wouldn’t be here today.
Legally, I have done my own bit, so I don’t have anything to tell him. The funny thing is that he has a problem but nobody knows what the problem is. So, if you will not sue me then shut up! Stop killing yourself; it is becoming too embarrassing.
