Ahmedu Obiabo, the Nigerian singer better known as Blackface, has accused Wizkid and Banky W of stealing his song.


Banky W had in a recent interview reflected on Wizkid’s time under Empire Mates Entertainment (EME), his music label.

The music executive had claimed Wizkid exited his five-album contract with EME after releasing two projects.

In his reaction, the ‘Ojuelegba’ crooner had retweeted the interview alongside a cryptic caption that simply reads: “LOL”.


Amid the ongoing drama between the pair, Blackface claimed Wizkid and Banky W recorded his song titled ‘I Like the Way’ without his permission.

“Two of una know say we get unfinished business for jacking my song ‘I like the way’ make una call me,” he wrote in a mixture of English and Pidgin.

In a follow-up post on his Instagram page, he called on his fans to tag the duo to his post.

Blackface also tackled Samklef, the music producer, for reproducing his sound.


“Make una tag them to call me as the #copycopy and over lifting didn’t stop there they took #twistandturn of my album #risingsun to do that garbage they call #ginger again…” he added.

“You never finish one matter you dey enter another one? Na @samklef cause all these for reproducing my sound for you to ride on! Keep being on the run ….you still getting served too! Call me.”

Both Wizkid and Banky W are yet to react to his claim as of the time of this report.

This is not the first time Blackface would be calling out his colleagues in the music industry over intellectual theft.


The Benue-born singer had earlier accused 2Baba of stealing the 2004 hit song ‘African Queen’ from him.
