Blackface, the Nigerian dancehall singer, appears to be finally ready to end his years-long feud with 2Baba, his former colleague in the now-defunct music group Plantashun Boyz. 


Speaking on the recent Honest Bunch podcast, Blackface asked 2Baba to forgive him for his “wrongdoings, knowingly or unknowingly”.

He also said he is “ready to move to the next level” while urging 2Baba to do the same.

“Idibia Innocent…. I forgive you. Anything wey you do me I forgive you. Anything you have done to me,” he said in a mixture of pidgin and English.


“And anything I have done to you knowingly or unknowingly, you better put it in your mind to forgive me. I do not know wrong. And I know you know what I am talking about.

“So it is time for us to go to the next level. I want everybody to know this one. It is time to forget all these things that have been going on.

“And I am not saying from the point of view that I want to get the Plantashun Boyz money… I am good. I fit dey now I no fit sing again I go still dey okay. Because my royalties go dey still dey read. Anyhow I go manage small small dey go.


“But then we need to get to the fans. We need to sanitise the world. See the wars wey dey go on. The Gaza, the Palestine, the Israel. Na we suppose to dey tell dem sey to stop this war. It is our responsibility as singers.”

2Baba, Faze, and Blackface were members of the Plantashun Boyz. The group was founded in 2000 but dissolved in 2004.

Although the trio reunited briefly in 2007 to release an album.

During their solo careers, a disagreement ensued after Blackface accused 2Baba of stealing the 2004 hit song from him.


Since 2015, Blackface constantly tackled 2Baba for recording ‘African Queen’ which he claimed he wrote.

In 2017, he argued that 2Baba “sabotaged” his career in the music industry and “plotted to deprive me of my shows for the past eight years”.
