Remember the song by 2Baba: “just because I no finish school some people come dey take me for a fool…” Well, one of Nigeria first generation University and one of the best, Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) is set to honour him and this has drawn reaction from Reno Omokri.
Innocent Idibia, also known as 2Baba is undoubtedly one of Nigerians best contemporary musicians and has very well paid his due in the industry.
Obviously elated 2Baba joyfully shared the news on his official Instagram and Twitter pages.
The honour is scheduled to hold on Wednesday, March 20.
2Baba wrote: “The great people of OAU will on wednesday, confer on me the award of the fellow of the school of music.
“I will also be delivering a public lecture.
“Industry meets Academia.
“Grateful for the honour.”
Meanwhile, the feud between 2Baba and his former partner, Blackface has proven unending as the latter has reawakened it in his new released singer, ‘war.’
Blackface insisted that 2baba stole his song and accused him and his manager of blocking him from shows.
An excerpt from the new blackface song said: “Why you steal my song you no let me know, na you and your manager wey dey block my show from every carnival; Your mama say you’re Innocent, but I know say you be cannibal.”
Following the developments, Omokri, in a brief letter to 2Baba, advised him to continue to be focused and never mind haters.
“Keep being better than haters. Let them be bitter than you, never better. Be so sweet that haters have no choice but to take a bite out of you. Instead of complaining about their bites, see it as evidence of your sweetness and give God glory.
“#RenosNuggets,” Omokri wrote
