“The Asake saga is my song, Ikebe super.”
Blackface went ahead to sing both songs to explain the similarities and how he inspired the YBNL star’s track.
Not stopping there, the ex-Plantashun Boy credited himself for inspiring many people and went ahead to wish for such inspiration to come to him.
According to him, it hurts when he gets inspired to make music and someone picks it to use. He added that the person might not even use the song in a way that pleases him.
He however noted that these musicians should try to do what is right. In his words:
“I know say I dey inspire them, me sef I need to find where this current of inspiration go come to me. I dey isolate myself, dey wait for this wind of music. So if the wind of music just come and somebody just pick am just like that, e dey be me somehow, e dey be like say somebody molest your child and the person fit record the song in a way wey I fit no even dey happy. I no get time but make dem just do what is right.”
