Nigerian legendary musician and former member off Plantashun Boiz, Tuface Idibia, has replied Blackface on the incessant allegation that the former stole his music.
In an interview with The Sun newspaper, the African Queen crooner, said that Blackface has only been on the route to tarnish his image.
“Let me put it like this, you just go on air and start spinning lies. I have never said or done anything bad to Blackface, but he just goes on air and starts lying all the time because he wants to spread hate. It is a smear campaign,” he said.
Tuface said it is quite unfortunate that his former bandmate has quite stopped his accusations despite the face that he is all grown now and with kids.
The Amaka crooner also lamented the fact that the spurious allegation has became a source of obsession for his former mate, saying he does not know how to help him out of the situation even if he wants to.
“He keeps saying he is going to sue me, so I am saying sue me! You know say I no thief your song, you just want people to hate me. Stop the nonsense. Anytime he comes on air, ask him ‘wetin im do wey make me sue am? Ask am whether I no write am letter before say guy stop this thing, I did not steal your song’.
“What have I done to him? He just hates me. It has become an obsession and it is not healthy for him anymore and there is nothing I can say or do to help his dilemma, so I don’t know. It is not like I am giving up, but it is all up to him now. He has to free himself from that bondage,” he said.
He said that he is quite in a fix on what to do about his case, because he cannot get him arrested and help him help in a psychiatric hospital, appealing to those around him to help him.
“Every day, he keeps digging himself into this mess and now he has kids growing up. It is unfortunate. Before, I was quiet but he is always blabbing.
“Had I taken it serious from the beginning, we wouldn’t be here today. Legally, I have done my own bit, so I don’t have anything to tell him. The funny thing is that he has a problem but nobody knows what the problem is.
“So, if you will not sue me then shut up! Stop killing yourself; it is becoming too embarrassing. I can’t get him arrested and sent to a psychiatric hospital, so please, people around him should talk to him,” he said.
