“I Deserve To Be On ‘Joha’..” – Blackface Slams Asake
Afropop musician Asake and his label head Olamide have come under fire from Nigerian singer and former Plantainshun Boyz member Blackface for not getting in touch with him over the use of his work.
Idoamebo reports that earlier last week, Asake released a new song titled “Yoga”, Blackface said that because parts of his lyrics were included in the song “Joha,” he thought that he should have been in it during an interview with HipTV. He believed that he and Asake should have remixed Joha.
Blackface said that there would have been a partnership if only Olamide had been in touch with him.
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 own 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 it, but I feel like it’s all about you realising let’s give credit to who credit his due. You understand. I am not out to put them down. I feel like they are doing it unconsciously.”
He added, “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’”.
