Nigerian musician, Ahmadu Augustine Obiabo known as Blackface has revealed music star, Innocent Idibia popularly known as 2face dissed him in two of his singles titled “only me”, and “Oyi”.
The veteran singer who revealed this during an exclusive interview with blogger, Linda Ikeji, said the line ‘i no say no be everybody sabi play ball’ in the single ‘Only Me’, is directly a shot at him.
The artist further explained his reason for calling 2Face Idibia a gay in his latest song “war,” saying it is only normal in the music industry to call someone names when ‘dissing’ them.
He said: “Yes, I called him Gay, it’s a normal thing in music when you are yabbing someone, people have been doing it for ages. I can abuse his mother and say anything its normal.”
When asked why he released a diss song despite the fact that there was a pending court case.
He said: “Having a case in court doesn’t stop me from doing music. He has the same case in court and he’s been taking secret shots at me with his ‘Oyi’ and other songs, so it’s not a problem at all. I’ve always said it that if and when I want to yab 2face I’ll call him out directly.
“I’m not like him that’s been taking secret shots at me for ages. Go and listen to ‘Oyi’ he’s taking shots at me but he’s using the Idoma language to confuse you, people, that it’s a love song ‘Oyi’ is used to refer to a male in his language. If you also listen to his song ‘Only Me’, the line ‘i no say no be everybody sabi play ball’ line is also directly a shot at me. If he’s bold enough, he should grant an interview to address the issue but he won’t’.”
Blackface’s interview with Linda Ikeji is coming a few days after he dropped a diss song ‘War’ tackling his former group member, 2Face Idibia of the defunct Plantshun Boiz.
