He continued by saying that 2baba has always been the favourite of the bunch right from when they were growing up and people capitalized on that fact.
Blackface further revealed that he came into the industry solely to do music, not because he wanted to get rich.
The shocking part of his statement was the fact that no award body in the country has ever given him any form of recognition since he became a singer.
The singer also revealed that the media succeeded in bringing the brand 'Blackfacenaija' to ground zero.

"He is actually talented and he built his brand as part of a trio and when Tuface left, it must have been devastating. His actions were as a result of that hurt and I guess he felt betrayed. Well I hope he has moved on and would somehow blow again."
"Absolutely the media manipulation is a dark powerful weapon."
"You made a number of derogatory comments and the media amplified them. I don’t see how the media is at fault here."
"If you valued your brand, you should have been cautious. In my opinion, you helped the media bring your brand down!"

The lawyer continued by saying that 2baba never really disputed Blackface's claims and he did not confirm it as well making the latter look like a troublemaker.
