Ahead of his Live in London show at IndigO2 tonight, 2Face Idibia, one of Nigeria’s most celebrated musical sensations, has been in town doing promos and interviews since 2 November and was kind enough to make the time for Team FAB’s Sinem, Suby and Simi in his hotel room in London for an impromptu photo shoot and interview.
Already an African musical legend in the making with the 2005 “African Queen” chart topper and millions of album sales since as well as diverse high profile accolades he has been decorated with including MTV Africa Music Awards 2010 Artist of the Year and Best Male, BET Awards 2011 Best International Act – Africa, MOBO 2007 Best African Act, MTV Europe Music Awards 2005 Best African Act, it would be too easy for 2Face, aka Innocent Ujah Idibia, to flaunt his fame, but instead what you’ll find is a genuinely nice guy who is down-to-earth, laid-back and easy-going.
Enjoy our FAB questions and 2Face’s FAB answers and look out for the Winter issue of FAB, out late December, for the full interview and photo shoot. And you haven’t yet got your tickets to 2Face’s one-off show off his Buckwyld & Breathless tour, make sure you make the last ditch attempt. With a stellar line-up of supporting acts including Lynxxx, Tiwa Savage, Timi Dakolo and Zimbabwean R&B sensation Cynthia Mare (who also graced the stage at our UK launch) and of course 2Baba himself, it is sure bound to be a night to remember.by
