2face Idibia’s management, Now Muzik, has also reacted to the continued allegations by his former band member, Blackface.
According to the statement released by Now Muzik’ Adejimi Oni:
‘contrary to the position held in some quarters that our client, Innocent Idibia, AKA 2Baba has failed or refused to respond to the ridiculous accusations by Austin Ahmedu AKA Blackface, we would like to say that this is not true’.
What 2Baba and our founder/CEO, Efe Omorogbe have done is refuse to create time to engage in an unproductive media banter with Blackface every time he wants to drop new material.
Both 2Baba and Omorogbe have stated publicly that Blackface’s claims of song theft and media/live performance blacklisting are unfounded and malicious.
Blackface has been advised to seek legal redress if he believes his claims are true and if not, cease and desist from making unsubstantiated defamatory public statements about both 2Baba and Omorogbe.
Blackface’s refusal to file a suit or discontinue the defamation forced our lawyers to institute a defamation suit against him at the Lagos State High Court. His lawyers have entered a defence and the case is currently on-going.
2Baba and Omorogbe are confident that the court will handle the matter. They will not fuel a media trial by commenting on a case that is already before a competent court of law.
The position advanced in a press statement issued on February 3, 2016 remains the same and no further response is deemed necessary.
For: Now Muzik.
