Blackface has denied dragging 2face, Faze and Ruggedman to court over performing songs that belong to his defunct music band, The Plantashun Boiz.

It is reported that a show to be hosted by Ruggedman would feature The Plantashun Boiz which includes Blackface, 2face and Faze. However, Blackface was not contacted for the show. This made him to issue a statement which made many think he was suing his former band mates to court.

Clearing the air, Blackface said:

“I never said I was suing them for damaging the image of Plantashun Boiz. If they read the letter properly they would have had a proper understanding of what it says.

“I only informed them that performing any of Platashun Boiz’s song at the said concert would amount to an infringement on my registered copyright.

“However, the band, Platashun Boiz was not contracted for the show Ruggedman is currently promoting, so 2Baba or Faze shouldn’t go there and perform any song by the band because copyright over the songs belong to the band and not any individual”, he said.

When E-Daily reached out to Ruggedman on the matter, he said; “I have no comments on this matter at the moment because I’m busy planning my forthcoming show with positive-minded artistes.
