Legendary Nigerian Pop star, Innocent Idibia popularly known as 2Baba has described himself as an ‘upcoming artist’ when compared with the new artists in the Nigerian music space.

Credited with hits like African Queen, he is regarded as one of those who contributed in the early stages to making Afrobeat what it is today.

However, in recent times, with fewer records, 2Baba has received lesser attention compared to raves of the moment like Asake, Rema, Omah Lay and a host of others. And for him, this has played a part in him becoming an ‘upcoming artist’

Taking to Instagram, he wrote, “Yes ooo 🙌🏾 2024… we no dey gree for anybody this year o.BORN AGAIN ALBUM LOADING…This young boys and girls are not smiling 🤣🤣💪🏾💪🏾💯👊🏾🙌🏾 and I’m super excited about this development.

Who no work no go shop
