Blackface is reportedly to have issued an apology to his former band mate, 2face Idibia.
The apology comes on the heels of the out-of-court settlement for their ongoing copyright infringement battle in Lagos on Wednesday.
The erstwhile best friends came to an agreement at a mediation process held in the presence of 2baba’s manager, Efe Omorogbe, and Black Face’s lawyer, Manny Enajeroh, in Lagos.
2Face who signed an undisclosed settlement agreement at the Ikeja High Court reportedly dropped his N50m defamation lawsuit against Blackface, his band mate at the defunct Plantashun Boyz.
It is reported that Blackface agreed not to publicly call out 2Face while the ‘African Queen’ crooner agreed to work out an agreement that will enable Blackface earn royalties.
The copy of the apology letter reads;
“Having consulted with my Solicitors, I do hereby revoke all allegations of intellectual property theft and career sabotage previously made against Mr. Innocent Idibia and Mr. Efe Omorogbe
“These statements were erroneously made under misapprehension as to their accuracy, due to prevailing circumstances at the time. I have been advised on the inaccuracy of my previous allegations and retract them entirely.
“I undertake to refrain from making any such subsequent statements against the persons of Mr. Innocent Idibia and Mr. Efe Omorogbe in future”.
Black Face’s solicitor, Manny Enajeroh, has also confirmed the development.
Mr Enajeroh also hinted of a possibility of both artistes recording a track when this newspaper probed further.
In Enajeroh word;
“That would ultimately depend on the parties, but I see no reason why that can’t happen. Their differences were purely professional resulting from certain inefficiencies in the copyright system. There is no longer an issue of stealing songs so I believe the future of both artistes is bright.”
2face’s manager also confirmed the news adding that his team would issue a statement to the effect on Thursday.
