Blackface speaks on settling out of court with 2face Idibia


Blackface has taken to his Instagram account to release a statement that confirms he has agreed to settle out of court with colleague, Innocent Idibia, also known as 2baba.

Recall that BlackFace and 2face Idibia were having a legal battle in court after the later sued the former N50m for defamation which they agreed to settle out of court at the Ikeja high court, Lagos state.

In the statement to confirm the new status, Blackface revealed that 2face Idibia and his manager Efe Omorogbe withdrew their defamation suit and they admitted they made mistakes with my songwriters and publishers rights which they should have informed him before but they never did ,they have promised to rectify.

He wrote;

No be say i too talk my people but I’m just trying to inspire somebody or ‘trying to make common sense’ like Mr Ben Bruce would say My people “Don’t sleep on your rights” and users of peoples works make sure the writers/contributors are credited properly When you speak out, things happen and that’s why I said I will be done with this issues this year 2019 and behold here we are…

I can say that the 50 Million defamation suit filed against me by Mr Innocent Idibia aka 2face and his manager Mr Efe Omorogbe has been settled out of court as they both have withdrawn their case filed against me It’s true that they sang my song without permission and truly it pissed me off, but that doesn’t legally make them thieves as the lawyers made me to understand Sometimes the words we use matter, that’s why I apologised for using that word when my lawyers advised me…

Finally they admitted they made mistakes with my songwriters and publishers rights which they should have informed me before but they never did ,they have promised to rectify them so we wait and I hope they honour this this time and furnish me details to that effect.
