Legendary singer 2Face Idibia doesn’t miss an opportunity to let the world know about the love he shares with his long time boo and wife, Annie Idibia.
In a recent chat with DJ Anyaloko, the award-winning Nigerian artist opened up on why he married Annie despite having kids from different women.
According to the father of seven; 5 from his previous relationships with other women and two with his wife, Annie is a gem who has always been his cheerleader and motivator in his life.
The pop singer explained that she chose Annie because she offered him her all when they had very little, adding that she stayed with him at the time he had no money or hit songs.
In his words:
“You see Annie is from an average background like myself. We both started from nothing. She stuck by me through it all. When there was no car she hopped on bikes, took the bus, and trekked with me. When there was no money or house or hit song or millions of albums sold or big awards and accolades.
“When I used to repeat just 3 sets of clothes, she would always hold my head, look me in the eyes and tell me things will be fine one day. When I wasn’t handsome, she would call me her prince charming. When I wasn’t celebrated, she called me her king and said she is my number one fan and to this day, she still is.
“Even when I made it big as a musician and started misbehaving and controversies almost destroyed my career, she would go down on her knees and pray to God to show me the way and give me victory over my enemies.
“Now if am still that small boy struggling to make it like every other young chap on the streets of Lagos, do you think a doctor, a lawyer, and a multi-millionaire businesswoman would want to look at me or even have my kids? No, so to answer your question, I did not choose who had more to offer me, I chose Annie because she offered me her all when we had very little.”
