2face Idibia is 40 already??? Wowza! The African music icon will be a year older on September 18. And as part of the celebrations, Nigerian Entertainment Today (NET) will be unveiling the singer’s biography, titled ‘A Very Good Bad guy: The Story Of Innocent 2Face Idibia.’
The book which was edited by veteran journalist and 2face’s former publicist Ayeni Adekunle will contain detailed interview with 2face, lyrics and discography, views from some of those who have shaped his life and career, an insider’s journey through his life and times, as well as a collection of some of the most important articles, reviews, features and news about him since 2004.
Speaking about the project, 2Face himself said, ‘It’s a really good feeling knowing that all these years that
I’ve been surviving in this industry, someone has been taking note you know…compiling my story so that on an occasion like this, they will release it for the world to see. I’m really feeling the love but importantly I hope those coming behind will read and learn from my story.’
‘Apart from being a fantastic musician and a wonderful person, 2Face is also a personal friend and source of inspiration; so few things give me as much joy as being able to give this gentleman some of the recognition he deserves on the occasion of his 40th birthday. These are important projects Nigeria must do for our cultural posterity. We must tell our stories and document our history. NET is delighted to compile the life stories of this cultural icon of our times so that our children and our children’s children can read it and learn. And this is the first of many to come’. Ayeni Adekunle noted.
