Singer Blackface drops own version of African Queen

Nigerian singer, Blackface, seems ready to move on from his tussle with former bandmate, 2baba, over a track titled African Queen.

Blackface who co-wrote the song had accused 2baba, who popularised the track, of stealing it from him.

Well, moving forward, Blackface has now released his own version of the controversial track. His version sounds very similar to the one sang by 2baba except for the third verse.

According to reports from Premium Times, Blackface explained that he gave the initial singer the right to sing the song but never got credited as the writer by the label.

Explaining further, Blackface added that he removed the third verse 2baba added to the song when it was produced by OJB and added his own original lyrics making this version a complete original.

He said: “The singer (2baba) included a third verse he wrote to the music when it was produced by OJB but I took that verse out and included the third I had written to make this version of mine totally written by self .”
