NIGERIAN MUSICIAN AHMEDU AUGUSTINE BIOGRAPHY
Ahmedu Augustine Obiabo, also known as Blackface Naija or simply Blackface, is a Nigerian dancehall, ragga, and reggae singer and songwriter who was born in Ogwule, Agatu, Benue State, Nigeria in 1974. In 1985, he graduated from Army Children’s School in Otukpo, and in 1991, he received his O’ Levels from Mount Saint Gabriel’s Secondary School in Makurdi.
He is best known for co-writing the song “African Queen” with 2Baba, which became an international hit after it was released on the latter’s debut solo album Face 2 Face in 2004.
Blackface co-founded the Nigerian band Plantashun Boyz with 2Baba and musician Chibuzor Oji in 2000. During his secondary education in Benue, Blackface and 2Baba met. Faze arrived in Enugu after a short time. Body and Soul in 2000 and Sold Out in 2003 were both successful albums for the band. The band disbanded in 2004, only to reunite briefly in 2007 for the release of Plan B.
Blackface’s rift with 2Baba widened, especially over the rights to the song “African Queen,” despite the fact that he kept good relations with Faze.
Blackface pursued a solo career after the Plantashun Boiz disbanded in 2004. In May 2004, he collaborated with several artists to release the hip hop album Ghetto Child. The first single from the album is “Hard Life,” which features Alabai. He also released What We Are, a full-length album with his D Tribunal crew. He released Evergreen, Jungle Fever, Me, Musiq and I, Dancehall Business, and the upcoming Defender after Ghetto Child. He released the 200 album with Maine Eazz in 2013.
Caroline and Alex are Blackface’s two children from his eight-year marriage to Dayo. During the divorce process, the couple agreed to separate.
His net worth is speculated to be around $300,000.
