Blackface and 2face best friendship gone bad
Blackface a member of the defunct Plantation Boiz said all is now set to take his former band mate 2face and his manager Efe Omoregbe to court. Blackface made this known in a recent interview where he revealed 2face and his manager connived to steal his song titled "Let Somebody Love You."Blackface who strongly believe that 2face made a deliberate effort to steal his song sad:
"Yes, I have; and my legal team is working on that, as that’s the best way to go. When I accused them, they lied and said its ‘unfortunate’. I said they took my song and then even said maybe my account was hacked. Well, if you thought so why didn’t you pick up your phone and say “Yo black, what’s going on?”

"But, no they won’t because they wanted to steal it and it backfired, and they trying to act ‘holy’ so they make flimsy excuses. 2face and his manager planned all of that,” Blackface said.

Still speaking on the issue Blackface whose music career have gone to the backstage believe meeting 2face in court is his final option haven made several attempt to settle the issue with his estranged friend.
In his words: “So, the court is our only option as they keep avoiding meetings thinking that with time it will all fade off. But, they know not what tomorrow holds and neither do I”.

 Do you still remember, Blackface? Obviously the new generation music lovers may not have known him in the glory days of Plantation Boiz, aside from history that he was a member of the Plantation Boiz along side 2face and Face.
The influential 2face Idibia
 Among the three former partners in the forgotten Plantation Boiz music label, 2face seems to be the most blessed by the gods after they parted ways as his music career is no where near his former band mates, he is an internationally recognized musician from Nigeria. 2face have received several awards, done many colabors with several international artist, he is also a national figure to recon with. 2faces' national influence was tested during his obliterated protest against bad governance in the country.
Next on the chart is Face, to me, face seems to be a better singer among the three but he is yet to blow as some will say. Or do I say the gods are yet to smile on him. Finally in my opinion, I think Blackface is the least known and celebrated among the three estranged friends.

Would one say that Blackface is looking for ways to hammer through his former friend who dumped them in Plantation Boiz to go solo?  Or is he still holding grudges against 2face for dumping the group?
