Veteran Nigerian musician, 2baba Idibia, has reflected on his past stating why he will never become a proud individual.
The ‘African Queen’ singer in a recent chat with The Gist opened up on how he has managed to keep things together despite the pressures of the industry.
He revealed that his way of life is due to the upbringing instilled in him by his parents saying that he grew up in a humble home.
In his words, “My parents taught me to respect everybody no matter their level in society. I’ve carried that all the way in my life.
“You never know who you meet. Everybody has potential. Everybody is capable of becoming somebody, becoming massive, becoming huge.
“With a few money in my pocket and a few people saying ‘hey what’s up, what’s up’ doesn’t mean that I don’t go to the toilet no more.
“E no mean say when hunger dey catch me my own na iron I dey chop. Na the same normal food as you dey chop. The same normal water. All of us dey bleed the same blood.
“For me, I look at everybody as a creation of the almighty and we are all created equal. Except you do anyhow around me then I go respect myself and free you.
“So I’ve lived with that principle and I think I’m going to live like that till I die.
“I think it’s just out of the fact that I’m in the same industry and I know what it takes and what everybody goes through so I respect everybody’s hustle.”
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had earlier reported that the battle between 2baba Idibia and Blackfacetook a new turn as the former has taken the latter to court asking him to pay N50 million in damages.
