Veteran artist, Ahmedu Augustine Obiabo, popularly known as Blackface, has accused YBNL boss, Olamide and his signee, Asake, of stealing his tunes.

In the most recent episode of The Honest Bunch Podcast, the former Plantashun Boiz member revealed that Olamide, in particular, has jacked multiple songs throughout his career.

“Olamide and Asake steal songs,” he said. Olamide has stolen numerous songs throughout his career. He sampled ‘Don’t Stop’ from my song “Killa.”

Wizkid and Burna Boy, according to Blackface, stole their hit song ‘Ginger’ from him.


He alleged that the song ‘Ginger’ was influenced by his song ‘Twist & Turn’. According to the veteran singer, other artists not only copied his lyrics but also stole the sounds he created.

Meanwhile, Asake, the gifted musician, has made history by being the first Afrobeat artist to amass a sizable following on Instagram.

This achievement sparked a wave of excitement on numerous social media platforms, with followers and aficionados praising his achievement.

Some fans speculated that Asake had surpassed Wizkid in terms of popularity, making him Nigeria’s most popular artist.

Furthermore, the attention he received went beyond social media. Asake’s talent and hard work were recognized in July 2023 when he was nominated for the coveted Headies award.

By September, he had won several of the awards for which he had been nominated, including the coveted Best New Artist award.
