Lead singer of the defunct Plantashun Boiz, Blackface, has expressed his unhappiness with the killings in the country.

Speaking with Saturday Beats, the singer said that the killings around the country would have reduced if only Nigerian singers unite with one voice to speak against the menace.

“They have killed a lot of people from my village, Agatu, in Benue. They have also killed people in Makurdi, and other places in Benue; then as they move up north to Adamawa, the trail of dead bodies continues. It does not affect my state alone. Sadly, the musicians are not doing anything about it. Some musicians just claim that they help victims either to gain public praises or for political reasons. Why can’t we come together and think of ways we can stop the killings probably by staging a concert?” he said.

He explained that he had always sung about the ills of the society but the radio stations would not play his songs because he was in their bad books.

“I did a song which preaches against the killings but radio stations would not play it because I am in their bad books. Simply because I had said some people stole my songs, that is why they placed me in their bad books. I know there is a plan against me. I am an independent musician and I do not need Tuface to make music,” Blackface lamented.
