More recognition keeps coming for 2baba, the 41 year old singer whose birthday was marked this month has gained another feather of recognition. This time the legendary singer has been fully endorsed by a First Class Yoruba King.
2baba Idibia has been honoured with an award as an Ambassador of Peace by the Ooni of Ife. This endorsement is the second of its kind from traditional monarchs. Sometime last year 2baba was turbaned ‘Tafidan Kudendan’ of Kudendan (which means the Ambassador of Peace) by HRH, the Galadima of Kudendan, in Kaduna.
According to Olori Supergal, the legendary singer was honoured yesterday by the Ife monarch for his #VoteNotFight campaign during electoral periods.
The endorsement from Ooni of Ife comes based on 2baba initiative and campaigns geared towards elections that are devoid of electoral violence. Vote Not Fight campaign by 2baba was launched last year as Nigeria was due for another round of general elections.
Congratulations to one of Nigeria’s finest musician 2baba Idibia.
