Blackface warns 2face, Faze and Ruggedman against performing Plantashun Boiz songs, serves copyright notice

Blackface has come out to serve Ruggedman a notice of an imminent copyright violation alongside 2Face and Faze, ahead of his scheduled concert. The professional singer said that the copyright notice became Paramount after other members of the non existing Plantashun Boiz band 'perform their songs together without rehearsal'.

According to Blackface, the act which he overlooked before now has continued 'damaging the image of the band'.  He had further warned that he will seek reform in court if 2Face and Faze perform any Plantashun Boiz' song at Ruggedman's concert.

He wrote:  

"Over the years this act of going to perform materials of #PlantashunBoiz at events without rehearsals and proper preparations has prompted me and my legal team to sound this as an advice to @ruggedybaba, @2baba_official1 & @fazealone not to continue damaging the image of the #band and concentrate on performing works solely made by them individually and none from the #band or written by myself, thank you.

Mr Ahmedu Augustine". Ahmedu Augustine Obiabo (born in Ogwule, Agatu Local Government Area, Benue State, Nigeria), known by his stage name Blackface Naija or just Blackface, is a Nigerian dancehall, ragga and reggae singer and songwriter. He is best known as co-writer of "African Queen" with 2face Idibia, a song made famous by the latter after it appeared on his debut solo album Face 2 Face in 2004 to become an international hit.

Blackface was a founding member of the Nigerian band Plantashun Boyz that he formed in 2000 with Tuface (also known as 2face Idibia) and musician Chibuzor Oji (better known as Faze). Blackface and Tuface had met in 1996 when they were studying at the Institute of Management Technology (IMT) in Enugu. Faze joined a brief while later. The band released two successful albums Body and Soul in 2000 and Sold Out in 2003. The band broke up in 2004, to be briefly reunited in 2007 for just one more album Plan B.

Although he kept sustainable relations with Faze, his rift with Tuface (2face Idibia) widened, particularly over the rights to the song "African Queen" Plantashun Boiz were a Nigerian hiphop and R&B music group. It consisted of 2face IdibiaFaze and Blackface. The group however split up after the exit of 2 Face who wanted a solo career on the platform of Kennis Music at the time, this didn't go down well with the other members of the group but they moved on and each released their individual single albums first with 2 Face and then Blackface followed by Faze. These albums were successful and Nigerians kept anticipating more from them even as many hoped for their reunion.
