2Baba will not fuel a media trial – Management responds to Blackface’s song theft claim

Now Muzik, the management of veteran Nigerian musician, 2Baba, has stated that its artiste has refused to engage in a media banter with Blackface over claims of intellectual property theft because the veracity or otherwise of the claim will be determined by a court of competent jurisdiction.

In a statement released and signed by Adejimi Oni for Now Muzik, the management said: “What 2Baba and our founder/CEO, Efe Omorogbe have done is refuse to create time to engage in an unproductive media banter with Blackface every time he wants to release new material.

“Both 2Baba and Omorogbe have stated publicly that Blackface’s claims of song theft and media/live performance blacklisting are unfounded and malicious. Blackface has been advised to seek legal redress if he believes his claims are true and if not, cease and desist from making unsubstantiated defamatory public statements about both 2Baba and Omorogbe.

“Blackface’s refusal to file a suit or discontinue the defamation forced our lawyers to institute a defamation suit against him at the Lagos State High Court. His lawyers have entered a defence and the case is currently on-going.

“2Baba and Omorogbe are confident that the court will handle the matter. They will not fuel a media trial by commenting on a case that is already before a competent court of law.”
