2FACE IDIBIA READY FOR 3RD ALBUM
It’s going to be a season of brand new albums very soon.
With D’Banj burning radioland with new singles and putting finishing touches to his upcoming album (titled Entertainer), Kefee, Segun Obe, Weird MC, Kween AND Azadus getting ready to unleash new materials on fans, it appears fans will have a difficult time making a pick from what’s going to be on offer in the next few months.
And now, bonafide hit-maker and Africa’s most iconic pop singer 2face Idibia is putting all the baby dramas behind him, and getting ready to serve fans will his third solo album.
Sources close to Idibia have confirmed to me that the singer is getting ready for another album. Already armed with a collabo with R.Kelly, a new management at his hypertek office and a zeal to maintain his spot as Nigeria’s number one music superstar, the former Plantashun Boiz singer is hugely expectant and determined to work his ‘magic’ again.
It is uncertain which producers he will be working with on this album. Omololu, OJB and Idibia himself were responsible for most of the songs on his last album (songwriting and production), but reliable sources have mentioned ID Cabasa, Cobhams and OJB as some of the beat-makers he’s speaking with. ‘He has also pencilled down some producers in London and America’ our source offered.
With his image in tatters, following a series of –out-of-wedlock babies, constant mudslinging among his three women, and consistent media bashing over his lifestyle, Idibia will need this album to ride back into favour with all those that have brought him this far in the first place. And with the likes of D’Banj, Asa and Psquare strolling up closely behind him, getting ready to wrestle the baton from his grip, Idibia will need to work hard and come correct on this album, if he’s to keep his position as Nigeria’s number one music export/ambassador.
