The name 2Face Idibia is attached to different personalities. While some people see him as a talented singer, others tend to judge him based on his personal or private life. But whichever way, the Benue State-born singer is a young living legend in the Nigerian music industry.
It is no news that the father of seven did not finish his tertiary education, which he admitted and sang about in one of his songs shortly after he went solo.
