The ongoing war between 2baba Idibia and his former band mate Blackface has taken a different turn as their ‘beef’ may be heading to court.
2baba had earlier written to Blackface via his lawyer asking him to apologise for his statement that 2baba and his manager had stolen and published the song Let Somebody Love You without his permission .
See the letter from 2baba’s manager stating the full requirements of 2baba from Blackface by the African Queen singer’s lawyer below:
1. A general unreserved apology in writing for all the defamatory statements made and/or published by you in the past;
2. Specific written apologies for all the defamatory statements by which you have accused our clients of (a) song theft (b) wishing you dead so as to take your property, (c) corruption (d) music royalties fraud and (e) career sabotage ;
and 3. That you refrain from further making any false or defamatory statement about our clients. The letter also stated that if he fails to apologize publicly within 7 days of receiving their letter, they would seek legal redress.
Now, Blackface has responded, he said 2baba and his team are evil and for this reason he wasn’t going to apologise. Read his expletive filled post below:
“They sent me that letter some days ago asking me to apologise. Rastaman apologizes to nobody man. Rasta will never apologise to them because they are filled with evil and fuckery so they should go to hell and anything they want to do they should do but I know that my lawyers should have served them already. What am I apologising for? Somebody takes your music and then you apologise?
They are really playing with themselves and I think the manager is putting him in a whole lot of trouble. They know they are in a whole lot of trouble. They took a lawyer from Oshodi bridge to write something for them who does not even know how to weigh the case and know what to even write. Illiteracy is around them. They are crazy. They don’t even know what they are doing,” he told Linda Ikeji.
