Multiple award winning singer, Innocent Ujah Ididbia popularly known as 2baba in this interview reveal why he chose to settle down with Annie Idibia instead of his numerous other baby mama’s.
Remember, the Afro pop king himself who attended Mount Saint Gabriel’s Secondary School Makurdi, Benue prior to 2014 was called 2face. The Idoma boy who was born in jos started his Tertiary education at Institute Of Science And Technology (IMT) Enugu. While he was a student, he organised and performed in shows. He later dropped out to pursue his music career
2Baba is father to 7 kids; 5 from his previous relationships and 2 from Annie Idibia Olivia and Isabella Idibia. The Popular award winning songwriter, producer, entrepreneur took out time in an interview with Dj Anyaloko to explain why he decided to settle down with Annie Idibia. 2face spoke well of all the past women he’s dated and babymamas but was quite specific when it came to the turn of Annie.
When Dj Anyaloko, the journalist interviewing 2Face Idibia asked him why he chose to marry Annie Idibia out of all the women in his life, he relaxed back on his sit, took a deep breathe in reflection and gently answered her the usual 2face way ‘you see Perro Aseniyi who gave birth to my first son graduated from a top UK university as a medical student and is now a doctor. She is very beautiful and intelligent from a very wealthy family’ 2baba took a breath and continued ‘Sandra who gave birth to my other two kids is dealer in expensive diamond and gold jewelries. She was already a multi-millionaire when I met her. She owns one of the most expensive houses in Banana Island. Her family too are very well to do. He took another deep breathe and continued ‘Sumbo who gave birth to two kids for me is also a very intelligent first class lawyer. She has worked on and won many big cases for many wealthy men and women in the country and all’.
2baba smiled again but this time more livelier ‘but you see Annie is from an average background like myself. We both started from nothing. She stuck by me through it all. When there was no car she hopped on bikes, took the bus and trekked with me. When there was no money or house or hit song or millions of albums sold or big awards and accolades.
When I used to repeat just 3 sets of clothes, she would always hold my head, look me in the eyes and tell me things will be fine one day.
When I wasn’t handsome, she would call me her prince charming. When I wasn’t celebrated, she called me her king and said she is my number one fan and to this day, she still is. Even when I made it big as a musician and started misbehaving and controversies almost destroyed my career, she would go down on her knees and pray to God to show me the way and give me victory over my enemies.
Now if am still that small boy struggling to make it like every other young champ on the streets of Lagos, do you think a doctor, a lawyer and a multi-millionaire business woman would want to look at me or even have my kids? No, so to answer your question, I did not chose who had more to offer me, I chose Annie because she offered me her all when we had very little.”
