Must Read;The very good bad story of Innocent 2Face Idibia

Contradictions litter the story of 2face Idibia. His catalogue of local and international hits belie his age and down to earth nature for one.

His stature as one of the biggest musicians to come out of the continent is not in doubt. What is perhaps less known is that the potential to dominate Africa was evident when he was a member of the trio Plantashun Boiz. Even though they were a pop group, they found a formula to make popular hits without nudity and curse words.
This is the template Innocent Ujah Idibia has built on even on his road to musical stardom. In a time when it seems more fashionable to have R-rated songs and videos, 2face’s music still remains PG.
The book, A Very Good Bad Guy – The Story of Innocent 2Face Idibia, available on NETShop, traces the journey of the Benue-state born musician from being born in the northern part of the country to his education in the east, to finding fame and fortune in the west.
The rewards for sticking to what is true to his native has followed swiftly. One MTV Europe Music Award, one World Music Award, five Headies, four Channel O Music Video Awards, one BET award, four MTV Africa Music Awards, one MOBO award and one KORA award among several others.
He has truly deserved these awards however, if only judging by evergreen albums; Face 2 Face has since been followed by Grass 2 Grace (2006), The Unstoppable (2008), The Unstoppable International Edition (2010), Away & Beyond (2012) and The Ascension (2014).
