Blackface Raises Concerns Over Song Similarity, Sparks Music Copyright Controversy

Renowned Nigerian dancehall artist, Blackface, has publicly voiced his concerns over the alleged similarity between his song and a track from Shallipopi’s latest album. In a video shared on his Instagram page, the 50-year-old artist played a snippet of his song ‘Enemy Plan Enemy Fail’ alongside ‘ASAP’, a track from Shallipopi’s new album, questioning the originality of the latter.
