The popular Nigerian artiste, Innocent Idibia, popularly known as 2Face celebrated 20-years on stage recently. 2Baba, as his fans call him, referred to himself as “the King of Music in Nigeria” at an intimate and exclusive appreciation dinner party.
Partners and brands whose invaluable support have propelled his musical career over the last two decades all came from the ends of the earth to celebrate with the King of Music at the exclusive appreciation dinner party.
With a grateful heart, the ‘African Queen’ crooner was full of thanks to God, his fans and everyone who has shown him support through any means over the last two decades.
“I just thank God for my musical career and for everyone that has been watching my back on this journey so far. Because twenty years ago I came out, and Nigeria has known me since then”.
“Before I officially started my career, people have already been listening to my music from Benue and other cities as a member of Plantashun Boyz back in 1999. Since then, so many people have been part of my journey. There have been so many obstacles and success, even said things I’m not proud of”, he said.
“On this course, I’ve made awkward decisions. But then, I have done great kinds of stuff I’m proud of and I thank God for them. I’m still and going to be grateful to God and fans for still being here with me. To my critics and to all those that have shown me love these last few years, I’m grateful”.
“It used to be lonely at the top but not anymore, as young ones are now taking music even beyond where we reached and that’s my joy. But you know as the English proverb says ‘old soldier never dies’. So I’m still pretty much relevant at the top”, he said with a smiling face.
2Face, the King of Music further said that over the past two decades of his musical reign, he has learnt unforgettable things. “The music industry has taught me that whatever you do, you must keep your head straight and do your thing. You don’t have to judge yourself by what others are doing. Everyone is the pilot of his or her own life. The moment you begin to judge yourself by other people’s actions, then you are heading for a crash”.
