Controversial Nigerian singer Blackface has recently explained the reason why he decided to record his own version of African Queen, and also revealed his plans to reignite former music group Plantashun Boiz.
The music star who has been at loggerheads with ex-music mates 2baba Idibia and Faze, made his mind known during a recent radio interview at Max 102.3 FM.
Fielding a question about the existence of any bad blood between him and his colleagues, the music star explained that he does not have time to be bothered about whatever is going through their minds.
He said he was spending time building the defunct group and pointed out that Plantashun Boiz will bounce back with or without the presence of the former members.
According to him, rebuilding the group does not have to involve 2baba and Faze due to the fact that he majorly owns the franchise and it’s his personal project.
He said he could decide to bring artistes like Johnny Drille or Seyi Shey to do music for the group. Speaking on the decision to release his own version of African Queen, Blackface explained that he had been seeing so many other upcoming acts making their own versions of the song, with none of them consulting him, despite the fact he wrote most of the song.
This, according to him, had driven his interest in making his own version and singing it the way he really envisioned when he sat down to pen the classic hit.
In a different portion of the interview, the singer addressed the issue of poor lyrics in the music industry and noted that some artistes have lost their sense of authenticity.
He particularly pointed an indirect finger at Tiwa Savage after he mentioned her lyrics in Zlatan Ibile’s single Shotan, although, he never mentioned her name.
