Blackface calls out Wizkid & Burnaboy, claims they sampled his song on “Ginger” without his permission
Nigerian singer, Blackface who was formerly under the the defunct Plantashun Boiz, has accused Afrobeats giants, Burnaboy and Wizkid of sampling his song to make a hit record.
Recall in 2020, Wizkid released the hit song “Ginger” featuring Burnaboy. The song was a track off Big Wiz 4th studio album “Made In Lagos”.
He claimed that they sampled his song titled ‘Twist and Turn’ while recording Ginger without giving him credit.
The dancehall artiste took to his official Twitter handle to make the accusation on Monday, November 14, 2022.
He tweeted; “This is my song #twistandturn you both sampled to make that GINGER @wizkidayo @burnaboy Una for at least give me a call Make una no do like banky.”
In another tweet on Tuesday, Blackface shared an audio-visual snippet of what is purportedly the original demo of the song as evidence.
Blackface said Wiz and Burna should have asked for permission before sampling his music.
Though he called them out publicly, the singer, however urged both artistes to contact him privately.
He added; “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.
