Veteran music artiste, Blackface of defunct Plantashun Boiz, has called out music superstars, Burna Boy and Wizkid, for allegedly sampling his song without giving him credit.
Blackface, in a post shared on his Instagram page, accused the entertainers of sampling his song ‘Twist and Turn’ in their featured song ‘Ginger’, off Wizkid’s 2020 album, Made in Lagos.
Sharing a video snippet of the song he claimed they copied, Blackface said they should have asked for permission before sampling his music. He however urged Wizkid and Burna Boy to contact him privately.
“Anything wrong in asking for permission before you guys decide to sample my music ? Sampling is wrong when you don’t ask for permission before you do such @wizkidayo @burnaboygram I still dey wait make una call me.
