A former member of the defunct Plantashun Boiz group, Ahmedu Obiabo, popularly known as Blackface has released his own version of ‘African Queen’.
The song was first released by Tuface Idibia, a former member of the group in 2004.
According to Blackface, the song was originally written by him 15 years ago, but he never got credited as a writer by the label or Tuface himself.
Blackface had earlier hinted his followers on Instagram to anticipate his own version, he wrote: “Finally my #version of #africanqueen will soon be available on all platforms worldwide…just to clear the air again …I gave the initial singer the right to sing the song but I never got credited as a writer by the label that released it nor any acknowledgement from the singer while the song did so many numbers and won many awards since 2003/4 till date.
“The singer included a third verse he wrote to the music when it was produced by OJB but I took that verse out and included the third I had written to make this version of mine totally written by self…I can’t wait for you all to feel this one.”
On Sunday, he announced that he has released the new track and share it via his social media page.
