When quizzed about why his writing with Platainshun Boiz carried the group’s name instead of his own, Blackface stated that this was because he wanted the group to present a unifying front and not to make one of any of them look like they were not contributing.
Blackface has also laid claim to the mega-hit record “African Queen” which is a song by his former Plantainshun Boiz member 2baba.
