Nigerian ace singer, Blackface has revealed why he deserves recognition on Asake’s hit song, ‘joha’.
Blackface, in an interview with HipTV, revealed that he should have been featured in the song as some of his lines were used in ‘joha’, adding that ‘joha’ should have been a remix with him and Asake
The singer further took a swipe at Olamide, who is the record label boss of Asake, stating that if only Olamide had reached out to him, then there would have been a collaboration.
Blackface made it clear that he isn’t trying to disrespect Asake’s work, however, he feels he should have been to be credited for his work.
He said, “Listening to the music, the first thing that hit me was just the line. That was the line that I used in my music. I had already released it in the year, 2020. I had already released that song in an album. Though no disrespect because these people have tried to put some work in, but I feel like it’s all about you realizing let give credit to who credit is due. You understand. I am not out to put them down. I feel like they are doing it unconsciously.
“I feel I should be on Asake’s joha. That should have been a remix with me and him if Olamide had said ‘my boy is vibing to your sound’”.
Recall that Blackface had earlier called out Asake for alleged intellectual theft.
In a series of tweets, Blackface accused Asake of not seeking permission from him before remixing his song.
“You spend 165k dollars to shoot a music video for your artist. Una no fit use 100 naira call the owner of the song before una remix am.
“Una dey form say una smart I believe. E better make una do the right thing because this one I no go sorry for una! I dey come”.
