Ahmedu Obiabo, the Nigerian singer better known as Blackface, has tackled Rema, his younger colleague, over the lyrics of his hit song ‘Charm’.


Rema released ‘Charm’ on April 28.

In the song, Rema pleads to his love interest in pidgin English to get closer, perhaps to dance or for comfort.

He also boasts about having enough wealth to take care of the lady — who appears to be older than him — even more than her father could.


“Come here, wetin dey worry you? Bring body make I rock am, yeah, yeah. I know you senior me. I get money pass your papa. Wetin you want wey I no fit do for you? Why you wan dey buga wọn? Shey you be Kizz Daniel ni? You better drop your body armor,” Rema sings.

Speaking on the HonestBunch podcast, Blackface argued that Rema “lacks moral values”.


The ace singer said he would never support a marriage between his daughter and a man with such a “disrespectful mindset”.

“Fine girl wetin dey worry you, you don dey craze for your head, I get money pass your papa. I dey talk to you, you no see say I get money pass your papa.’ Na that kind boy my daughter wan carry come house for me,” he said.

“This one number one no morals, because what you speak comes from the heart unless somebody else is telling you what to say because they feel it is going to sell but when you are all about the money, you disrespect the game that is why I said there is no real love for the game.”
