Blackface, a former member of a music group, Plantashun Boiz, has again vented in an explosive new interview with Saturday Beats.
The singer talked about the killings in Nigeria, the music industry and artists who stole his songs.
“They have killed a lot of people from my village, Agatu, in Benue. They have also killed people in Makurdi, and other places in Benue; then as they move up north to Adamawa, the trail of dead bodies continues. It does not affect my state alone.
“Sadly, the musicians are not doing anything about it. Some musicians just claim that they help victims either to gain public praises or for political reasons. Why can’t we come together and think of ways we can stop the killings probably by staging a concert?” he said.
On being blacklisted in the industry:
“I did a song which preaches against the killings but radio stations would not play it because I am in their bad books.
“Simply because I said some people stole my songs, that is why they placed me in their bad books.
“I know there is a plan against me. I am an independent musician and I do not need Tuface to push my music.
“If I release a song titled, ‘Stop the killings,’ and the radio big boys do not play it, only a few people would listen to the message I am preaching which is of national benefit.
“The so-called big OAPs like Freeze, who is always talking about pastors, are on the radio but they are not doing anything to push socially conscious songs that preach a message. But if Tekno sings a ‘Jogodo’, they will gladly play it.
“Their nonchalant attitude would destroy a lot of things and only bring more chaos.
“I have always advised the younger artistes to seek the permission of older artistes before they use their songs but no one listened.
“Wizkid took my song, ‘Whine it,’ sang it with Banky W and put it on his album, ‘Starboy.’
“That same song is on my album, ‘Dancehall business.’ When I raised the alarm, the whole media kicked against me and they stopped playing my music.
“Yet they say I am the bad one. How long would they keep sabotaging me?” he said.

‘Lekki Tollgate Is Not Sambisa Forest’ – Actor Frank Donga Reacts To Lekki Shooting
Nollywood actor, Kunle Idowu, also known by the stage name Frank Donga, has reacted to the shooting at Lekki Tollgate on Tuesday, October 20, 2020.
The movie star and comedian is of the view that the Lekki Tollgate should not have been invaded by armed military officers because it is not a warzone compared to Sambisa Forest.
Sambisa Forest, which used to be a site of tourist attraction in Borno state, has now become a place known for Boko Haram terrorist attacks.
Taking to Twitter to bear his mind, Frank Donga writes:
“Lekki tollgate is not Sambisa forest. The unarmed protesters are not terrorist, yet you sent armored vehicles and live bullets to them. 20-10-20”
