Former Plantashun Boiz member and Nigerian singer Blackface has accused Burna Boy and Wizkid of sampling his old song for their collaborative project, Ginger.
He alleged Burna Boy and Wizkid’s Ginge is a rip off of his song”Twist and Turn,” which they took without giving him credit.
Ginger is a song off Wizkid’s Made In Lagos album which was released two years ago. On Monday, November 14, 2022, the dancehall artist made the accusation on his social media website.
He wrote: “This is my song #twistandturn you both sampled to make that GINGER @wizkidayo @burnaboy Una for at least give me a call Make una no do like banky.”
In a different thread, he said he has much love and admiration for the duo and expected them to call him to seek his authorisation first.
Though he called them out publicly, the singer, however, urged both artistes to contact him privately.
He wrote; “Anything wrong in asking for permission before you guys decide to sample my music ? Sampling is wrong when you don’t ask for permission before you do such @wizkidayo @burnaboygram I still dey wait make una call me.
These boys go dey sample me sample me ,when I talk (you know who ) go try to trample me .. This right here is way out of bounds boys…make Una Sha call me ! 📞🖤✌️🎵
”There you have it @wizkidayo @burnaboy you guys are breaking my heart when I respect and love you guys so much …..call me 📞🖤🏽”
