Veteran singer, Ahmedu Augustine Obiabo, better known as Blackface has criticised the lyrics of Rema’s hit song ‘Charm.’
He said some of the lines of the song are insulting.
The former member of the defunct Plantashun Boiz said Rema’s lyrics show that he lacks morals.
Blackface spoke in the latest episode of The Honest Bunch Podcast co-hosted by actor Chinedu Ani Emmanuel, aka Nedu.
He said, “The songs they are singing nowadays, do they represent Nigeria in a good light?
“‘I get money pass your papa, I get money pass your mama.’ What’s that? ‘Fine girl come wettin dey worry you?’ ‘You dey craze for your head?’ ‘You no know say I get money pass your papa?’ Is that the kind of man that my daughter will bring home to me for marriage? I will kick that daughter and the man out of my house. Because such men as Rema have no morals.
“I said he has no morals because what you speak comes from the heart.”
“I get money pass your Papa…no morals”
