Legendary African Queen hit-maker 2Face Idibia will no longer answer to his popular moniker, instead he insists that you call him 2Baba. Idibia, whose real name is Innocent Ujah Idibia, has officially announced the name change ahead of the release of his new dancehall track Coded Tinz. Though the award-winning Nigerian star had hinted at the rebrand for years, he effected the change over the weekend with both his Twitter and Instagram handles reflecting the name change.
