Blackface releases own version of ’African Queen’

After several years of accusing his ex-bandmate, Innocent Idibia, also known as 2baba, of stealing his song ’African Queen’, Nigerian dancehall singer, Ahmedu Obiabo, popularly called Blackface, has dropped his version of the hit tune. Blackface retained elements of the original version, like the lyrics, chorus, verses and rhythm, in his own version. Blackface is best known as the co-writer of “African Queen” with 2baba, a song made famous by the latter. This was after it appeared on 2baba’s debut solo album ’Face 2 Face’ in 2004 and went on to become an international hit. See Song below https://youtu.be/NGXRoKBW1kc https://youtu.be/NGXRoKBW1kc
