A few weeks after releasing his newest single Rainbow and just days to the launch of his fifth albumAway & Beyond, Africa’s finest 2Face Idibia was honored by The Net newspapers and Industry Night
with an exclusive listening session at the Oriental Hotel.
The night was not short of star performances by the likes of Praiz, Iyanya and Hypertek signee Dammy Krane who paid tribute to the
legend of Nigerian and African contemporary music.
When the time came for 2Face to step on stage and guide the listeners through the songs off his
upcoming album, the whole hall was agog as everyone present was on their feet cheering. The highlight of the night has to be when the reggae legend Majek Fashek could not hold back the excitement as he hopped on stage to join 2Face in the middle of his rendition.
In related news, the release concert for the upcoming 2Face Idibia album titled ‘Away and Beyond’
which is scheduled to hold simultaneously with his 2Face Live production ‘Buckwyld N Breathless’ will take place tomorrow 30th of April, 2012 at the Expo Hall Eko Hotel and Suites. Tickets for the event are available at Silverbird Lifestyle stores, Barcelos, Ozone Cinemas and Koko Lounge.
Without any doubt the most accomplished artiste of his generation, 2Face Idibia put out his first
recording ‘Body & Soul’ as a member of the trio Plantashun Boiz in 1999. Thirteen years later, having gone through more ups and downs than an escalator, the artiste’s brand keeps waxing stronger as he continues to exceed expectations with the creativity and talent reflected in his music.
His latest album entitled ‘Away and Beyond’ hits stores near you from April 30 2012.
