Blackface Slams Shallipopi for Alleged Song Theft

Veteran Nigerian singer-songwriter Augustine Obiabo Amedu, popularly known as Blackface, has alleged that Shallipopi stole his intellectual property.

Blackface claimed that Shallipopi sampled his iconic song ‘Enemy Plan’, a track that has been a significant part of his career, in his recently released debut album ‘Shakepopi’ without permission.

On Sunday, the former member of Plantashun Boiz shared a video on his Instagram page, questioning if Nigerian artists can sing without copying his sound or melody.

Blackface wrote in pidgin, “Una mean say if them no copy my sound or my melody them no go get song to sing? Ok I don make remix for una so make una better abandon this una project.

Shallipopi has not yet responded to the accusation.
