ID CABASA GETS FIRST BABY
Exactly ten months after tying the knots, ID Cabasa and his wife Siju have been delivered of their fist baby. And it was an excited Cabasa that shared the news with friends and collagues last week shortly after his wife put to bed. The talented beatmaker and producer (he’s laced beats for Ruggedman, lord of Ajasa, 9ice, 2shotz, Ego Ogbaro, and the Plantashun Boiz reunion), tied the knots with his girlfriend Siju, an accountant by day and singer by night on Saturday April 7, 2007 at CMS girls’ grammar school, Yaba, lagos. Born Idowu olumide in the late 70s, Cabasa’s ‘coded tunes’ studios has recently become a mecca of sorts for artistes in search of a hit song, having seen his signature on such songs as ‘ruggedy baba’, ‘make dem talk’, ‘club rugged’, ‘gogngo aso’ and ‘oti ya’. Along with Jokaynie (who’s responsible for jimmy Jatt’s banger ‘stylee’), Jamix, TY Mix, Mosa, Mr Skillz, Jonah The Monarch, and Don Jazzy, Cabasa belongs to the new school of producers, wrestling with giants like OJB and Cobhams for a space to call their own in the booming music scene.
