Veteran artist and previous individual from the dead Plantashun Boiz, Blackface, has emphasized his claim that artistes like Wizkid stole his tune. He likewise communicated his misery about the killings around the nation in a talk with Saturday Beats.
Amid the talk, he said that the killings around the nation would have decreased if just Nigerian artists join with one voice to talk against the hazard.
“They have murdered many individuals from my town, Agatu, in Benue. They have likewise murdered individuals in Makurdi, and different places in Benue; at that point as they climb north to Adamawa, the trail of dead bodies proceeds. It doesn’t influence my state alone. Tragically, the performers are not making a move. A few performers simply assert that they help casualties either to increase open gestures of recognition or for political reasons. For what reason wouldn’t we be able to meet up and consider ways we can stop the killings presumably by organizing a show?” he said.
The vocalist additionally revealed to Saturday Beats that as a socially cognizant artist, he has dependably sung about the ills of the general public however the radio stations would not play his tunes since he is in their awful books. He asserted that as far back as he raised the caution that specific vocalists stole a portion of his tunes, he progressed toward becoming boycotted by the media.
“I completed a tune which lectures against the killings however radio stations would not play it since I am in their terrible books. Just in light of the fact that I said a few people stole my melodies, that is the reason they put me in their terrible books. I know there is an arrangement against me. I am an autonomous performer and I needn’t bother with Tuface to push my music. In the event that I discharge a melody titled, ‘Stop the killings,’ and the radio enormous young men don’t play it, just a couple of individuals would tune in to the message I am lecturing which is of national advantage. The purported enormous OAPs like Freeze, who is continually discussing ministers, are on the radio however they are not successfully push socially cognizant tunes that lecture a message. Be that as it may, if Tekno sings a ‘Jogodo’, they will happily play it. Their indifferent mentality would pulverize a ton of things and just bring more turmoil. I have constantly exhorted the more youthful artistes to look for the authorization of more established artistes previously they utilize their melodies however nobody tuned in. Wizkid took my tune, ‘Whimper it,’ sang it with Banky W and put it on his collection, ‘Starboy.’ That same melody is on my collection, ‘Dancehall business.’ When I raised the alert, the entire media kicked against me and they quit playing my music. However they say I am the terrible one. To what extent would they continue undermining me?” he said.
