The legendary singer and father of 7, also has a street named after him in Lekki, Lagos, “Innocent Idibia street” courtesy of a real estate company.
2Baba is being celebrated for his long-standing commitment to the success of AFRIMA since its inception in 2014 and more notably due to the dedication he displayed to the AFRIMA course playing hosting duties at the maiden edition of the awards despite the loss of his father weeks to the event.
The singer along with other AFRIMA delegates visited the governor to issue him a certificate of hosting as plans kick off for the 2016 edition of the notable event.
Meanwhile, as one of the pioneers of modern Nigerian music, in a recent interview, Tuface attempted to clear the impression that most Nigerian videos depict. According to him, life and music are not all about flexing, as portrayed in most music videos. He also explained why it is sometimes cheaper to shoot music videos outside the country rather than in Nigeria.
However, Tuface disclosed that he is very much impressed with the improvements in the quality of Nigerian music videos. The 40-year old legendary singer, however, was not too pleased but rather scared at the negative impact of the messages being passed.
