Particularly, 2baba and Blackface have a history of hurling brickbats at each other. In the long history of bitterness between the two, the most pronounced has been Blackface accusing 2baba of stealing his musical ideas.
The famous ‘African queen‘ track, Blackface claimed, was his idea and track. Even though the contentious track shot 2baba’s career into prominence, 2baba has been able to build on the success of ‘African queen’ and is widely regarded as one of the greatest artists to come from Africa in a music career which has spun over two decades.
Blackface, on the other hand, has not had a successful music career as 2baba’s. After the breakup of the group, despite reports of deals and music efforts, it has largely been a struggling one.
Despite the contrasting fortunes of Blackface and 2baba, spats have continued between the two and the latest between them sees Blackface respond to 2baba’s post by accusing him of being under PDP’s payroll during the reign of Chief Olusegun Obasanjo. Blackface uses a line from 2baba’s 2006-released track, ‘I dey feel like’, as a stick to beat him.
When e bad pass like this under PDP you no talk say make them close our country down, you been dey sing say you dey feel like Obasanjo…because you dey under their payroll abi wetin ? My guy this your point no valid,I no believe say you reason before you talk am ??✌ https://t.co/B8sD3Oa5U1
