Innocent Ujah Idibia, aka 2face, is known all over the world as a singer. Many of his successful songs have broken records, so it’s not surprising that he is regarded as one of the greatest African music artistes of his time.
Apart from his music prowess, there is one other attribute that stands him out and makes people to speak well of him. That’s his humility!
Despite his superstar status, the African Queen crooner always has a smile on his face. And unlike many other entertainers who may never achieve half of what he has even in 10 lifetimes, 2face always obliges his fans whenever they approach him for pictures, autographs, handshakes and hugs.
Little wonder that despite the scandals he has had in his career, his acceptability has not been affected. He is still one of the most loved artistes on the continent.
Sunday Scoop ran into him recently and he said, “Humility is not an act or make-believe. It is who I am and what you see is what you get. I don’t need to ‘form’ for anybody. I believe in myself and I believe that anybody who truly likes me would accept me as I am. Anyway, it is even better to be true to yourself because it would save you a lot of headaches. Sometimes, I read what some people write about me and I feel emotionally touched. Some people are ready to stake whatever they have to defend me; even if they don’t know whether I’m guilty or not. It’s not just about the music but maybe from the interactions they may have had with me. My humility has fought a lot of battles and I will always remain grateful to God and my fans.”
