Blackface Accuses Shallipopi of Intellectual Property Theft Over Song Sampling

Blackface and Shallipopi

Nigerian singer Augustine Obiabo Amedu, widely known as Blackface, has accused his colleague Shallipopi of stealing his intellectual property.

Blackface, a former member of Plantashun Boiz, alleges that Shallipopi sampled his song ‘Enemy Plan’ in Shallipopi’s debut album ‘Shakepopi’ without obtaining permission.

In a video shared on his Instagram page on Sunday, Blackface questioned whether Nigerian artists are unable to create music without copying his sound or melody. In pidgin, he wrote:

“Una mean say if them no copy my sound or my melody them no go get song to sing? Ok I don make remix for una so make una better abandon this una project.”.”

Shallipopi has yet to respond to the accusation.
