Blackface is best known as the co-writer of “African Queen” with 2baba, a song made famous by the latter. This was after it appeared on 2baba‘s debut solo album ‘Face 2 Face‘ in 2004 and went on to become a monster hit record.

Notable Lyrics

Can never take ur space

That’s a fact I cannot erase

And u, u are the one that makes me smile

Make me float like a boat upon the Nile

And you are my African Queen

The girl of my dreams

You take me where I’ve never been

You make my heart go ding-a-ling-a-ling, oh ahh

You are my African Queen

The girl of my dreams

And you remind me of a thing

And that is the African beauty
