As 2Baba turns a year older today, his dear wife took to Instagram to send a strong message across to him.

She shared a picture on her Social Media page and wrote:

“I’ll still be there when the sun shines bright and when the rain pours”.

She shared this picture with the above quote.

Innocent Ujah Idibia was born on the 18th of September 1975 in Plateau State, Nigeria. His music career started in 2004 with Plantation Boyz.

His relationship with Annie started at Even Ezra Music Studio when she was just fifteen and in her words, “I think there was some electricity that second”.

When Annie’s entertainment career became a lot more difficult as a result of being known as ’2Face’s girl’ and then they had their first breakup, came back, broke up again.

She was hurt when word got out that, in quick succession, 2Face had gotten two different women pregnant – Pero Adeniyi and Sumbo Ajala. At that point, the couple broke up.

When Pero and Sumbo yet again got pregnant for 2Face once again, that was when 2Face and Annie had their longest break-up which lasted almost a year and a half. But as they say, love will always find a way, they made up again and Annie gave birth to 2Face’s fifth child Isabel and then in 2012, Pero gave birth to his sixth child in the US. Well, Pero couldn’t even prevent them from being together.

In 2012, 2Face proposed to Annie on Valentine’s Day at Jay Jay Okocha’s Club 10 in Victoria Island, Lagos. And, they weren’t even dating then, although were still on talking terms after he had called her out of the blue a few weeks before, visited her at home and asked for her forgiveness and friendship. According to eye-witness reports, 2Face took Annie to a quiet section of the club, he knelt down and told her “I know we have had our ups and downs but it will be my heart’s desire for you to marry me” and then presented the dazzling ring and Annie began screaming “YES, YES, YES!” after crying her eyes out.

Shortly after 2Face‘s concert when he brought out then-fiancee, Annie during his performance of“African Queen”, the two secretly legalized their union in a Lagos registry on Tuesday, May 1 2012. They later went ahead with a traditional wedding on Friday 8th March 2013 in Akwa Ibom followed by big wedding parties before & after. The white wedding will be took place in Dubai on Saturday 23 March 2013. They’ve had a smooth relationship since then.

Happy Birthday to our humble erudite musician. Cheers to a bigger you.
