I stole my stage name from a friend – Blaqbonez reveals



Nigerian rapper, Emeka Akumefule has revealed that his stage name, Blaqbonez used to belong to a friend.

According to the Chocolate City artiste, he stole the name from his friend because was not using it for anything serious.

Blaqbonez stated this while speaking on Tea with Taymesan podcast as he talked to his pal about it before he started using the name.

He said the guy likes listening to rap songs but he does not rap, so he decided to adopt the name.

The ‘Haba crooner’ said the name adoption happened many years ago when he was still in school.

Watch him speak below:

Meanwhile, few weeks ago, Blaqbonez and Carter Efe clashed on Twitter when the rapper weighed into the ownership saga trailing ‘Machala’, the hit song by Carter and Berri Tiga.

Tiga had claimed he wrote and sang it 100%”, and that the skit maker initially offered him a 95-5 per cent deal despite being the brain behind the project.

Reacting to this in a series of tweets, Blaqbonez called out Efe for offering such a deal to the artiste.

“You no write song, you no produce beat but you want 95%. Wow. Forget music business, forget ‘I dey help you’ common human decency tells u that u should favor the creative! The one that brought the music out of thin air.

“Without promoter song fit blow, without the creative the song won’t exist!” he wrote.

In his response, Efe tackled the ‘Go Home’ crooner for always “hating” him.

“Blaqbonez I know you’ve hated me from day one, if you’re jealous just say it. Ok, and also before open your mouth to talk rubbish check for facts Egbon. Don’t act like a baby, because nobody offered anybody 5% Don’t hate just take note,” he replied.

Blaqbonez fired back at Efe, saying “I have always hated you”.

“No lie, I’ve always hated you. u not funny, you made a brand off riding dick, your whole comedy career is either dance naked or mention wizkid.

“Look around everyone’s building they own legacy, u out here being stupid for someone who don’t give a f*ck about u!”

Again, Carter responded; “LOL. This is an insult to the comedy industry because your full career was built on comedy
