Tubaba Idibia, a multi-award-winning Nigerian musician, has revealed why he married Annie Idibia Innocent despite having children from separate women.
The musician has seven children, five from past relationships with different women and two from his marriage to Annie: Olivia and Isabella.
2Baba revealed his reasoning for his decision and talked about his previous relationship in an interview with DJ Anyaloko.
“You know, Annie, like myself, comes from a middle-class family. We both started from the scratch. Throughout it all, she stood by my side. She got on bikes, took the bus, and trekked with me when there was no car. There was a time when there was no money, no house, no hit song, no millions of albums sold, no great awards and accolades.”
“She would always hold my head, look me in the eyes, and tell me things will be OK one day when I would repeat just three sets of clothes. She used to call me her prince charming when I wasn’t particularly attractive. When I wasn’t feted, she referred to me as her king and said that she was and still is my number one fan.”
“Even when I became famous and began misbehaving, and issues threatened to ruin my career, She would go down on her knees and pray to God to show me the path and grant me victory against my foes.”
“Do you think a doctor, a lawyer, or a multi-millionaire entrepreneur would want to look at me or even have my kids if I’m still that small youngster fighting to make it like every other young chap on the streets of Lagos? No, in response to your inquiry, I did not select who had more to offer me; I chose Annie because she gave me everything she had when we had very little.” 2Baba said..
