Back into town, 2Face Idibia mourns with the family of the bereaved. In an interview with Pulse, 2Face Idibia gave updates on his career and of course, such a topic can not be discussed without mentioning OJB Jezreel.
According to the ‘Implication Singer,’ if wishes were horses, he would have done much more to save the life of the late producer. Recall that OJB made a huge impact in the music career of most successful Nigerian artistes today.
His greatest contribution to Nigerian music was his production of 2face’s first two solo albums ‘Face 2 Face’, and ‘Grass To Grace.’ Both albums not only made 2face Idibia a bonafide African superstar but also helped instill the belief in our generation that we can conquer the world. Also, the credits to the lyrics of Tubaba’s African Queen goes to OJB as well, as he is not just an ace producer but an amazing songwriter.
OJB Jezreel went on a Kidney transplant surgery in 2013, however on Tuesday, June 14, 2016, he died, following some kidney failure, which had occurred a week before his demise. Speaking about the late producer’s death, 2face said,
“Working with him was wonderful we made magic together. I wish there was so much more I could have done for him before he died.”
Meanwhile, 2Face had just returned from Kenya with his beautiful wife, Annie Idibia. They went to explore the beautiful city of Nairobi alongside winners of the Campari Dare To Mix promo. They all had an exciting Safari trip, visiting the David Sheldrick wildlife orphanage and Giraffe Centre.
Prior to the trip, the popular music legend got a street named after him in Lekki, Lagos. He took to Instagram on June 17, 2016, to express his excitement. He wrote: “Yes ooo! Innocent Idibia str. One love and a big thanx 2 Haven Homes for the honor. Now u know where 2 find me.”
According to him, Haven Homes are solely responsible for the latest reveal and he is just as grateful to them as he is to God for honoring him.
