Ahmedu Augustine, also known as Blackface from the former music group Plantashun Boiz, recently criticized singer Rema for his song lyrics, asserting that they lack moral values. During a guest appearance on The Honest Bunch podcast, hosted by Nedu and others and shared on Monday, Blackface expressed his concerns about the content of Rema’s music. The experienced musician expressed his discontent with the current music trends and argued that many popular songs do not portray a positive image of Nigeria.
Using one of Rema’s songs as an example, Blackface highlighted the absence of moral values in the music industry, expressing his worry. He further mentioned that if his daughter were to introduce someone like Rema as a potential spouse, he wouldn’t hesitate to ask them to leave his house. Blackface justified this decision by stating that a person’s lyrics reflect their thoughts and values. In somewhat broken English, he commented, “Do those songs they sing represent Nigeria positively? I have more money than your father; I have more money than your mother. Don’t you know that I have more money than your father? And my daughter wants to bring such a boy home, saying, ‘Daddy, I like this man, and I want to marry him’? I would escort both of them out because this song, in the first place, lacks moral values, and what you say is a reflection of your true beliefs.”
