Blackface took to his Instagram page and wrote;
“Finally my #version of #africanqueen will soon be available on all platforms worldwide…just to clear the air again …
I gave the initial singer the right to sing the song but I never got credited as a writer by the label that released it nor any acknowledgement from the singer while the song did so many numbers and won many awards since 2003/4 till date.
The singer included a third verse he wrote to the music when it was produced by OJB but I took that verse out and included the third I had written to make this version of mine totally written by self ….I can’t wait for you all to feel this one #produced
