Nigeria’s most promising young rapper slash comedic sensation, Blaqbonez, has put out an appeal to veteran singer, Asa regarding his sample of her song, 360, on his forthcoming album, Young Preacher.
Seizing the moment while the Joeboy and Asa lawsuit circulated on Twitter as a trending topic, the rapper uploaded a snippet of a single off his coming album, Young Preacher titled I’d Be Waiting, saying, “Hi queen Asa (@asakemusik), I sampled your classic on the outro of my album, my team has reached out to yours for clearance. thank you ”
It’s however worthy to note that while the rapper had mentioned veteran singer, Asa who’s currently handling a court injunction from producer, Tempoe and has slammed Joeboy with a lawsuit, Blaqbonez had tagged the rapidly rising act, Asake. Fans have since shared their speculations regarding the tag, stating that it may be a sort of a doubly packed appeal to Asake for the number one spot on the charts in the country as well as Asa to clear the sample and not incur a lawsuit.
360 by Asa is a single off her debut album, Asa (Asha) whereas Blaqbonez’s forthcoming album is set to be the rapper’s second studio album and will be out on the 28th of October.
