2face against Blackface: Court Adjourns Rullings over defamation



Lagos State High Court has adjourned the case between 2Face and his former bandmate Blackface over N50M defamation of character lawsuit. In his ruling on Wednesday morning, March 20, 2019, Justice Oyefeso of the Lagos High Court adjourned 2Face’s lawsuit against Blackface and according to him, a new date which has not yet been fixed will be conveyed to both parties within one week.

A statement from Blackface’s lawyer, Mani Enajeroh of M.O Enajeroh, after the adjournment of the case reads,

”The Copyright system in Nigeria will eventually kill every iota of creativity in Nigerian music, unless someone takes up this issue of royalties.Even though we don’t have functioning collective societies that doesn’t mean we can’t be fair to one another. Because of speaking out about this Blackface was sued for N50m. That’s why it’s important that this case must be struck out. The case is a threat to freedom of expression, and intellectual property in general. We are confident that the Court will strike out the case. This is a copyright issue, no matter how you look at it and it ought to be at the Federal High Court. Look at their court documents, they did not admit anywhere that Blackface wrote “Let somebody love you”. The stories are never consistent.”
