Weeks after 2baba’s withdrawal from the Voice Nigeria with reason of commitments to other things, we’ve learnt that one of these commitments is a vacation to South Africa, which was fully sponsored by Campari, to which 2baba is a brand ambassador.
2baba arrived South Africa on May 17 with the Campari team and visited the Soweto home of anti-apartheid revolutionary, philanthropist and former president, late Nelson Mandela on May 18. This national heritage, popularly known as the Nelson Mandela National Museum, was where Nelson Mandela lived between 1946 to 1962. Coincidentally, it is only a short distance up the road from Tutu House, the home of Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, another iconic anti-apartheid campaigner.
While at Mandela’s House, 2baba joined a group of young South Africans in singing indigenous solidarity songs, reminiscent of the type Mandela and his colleagues sang during the days of protest. This beautiful moment of Pan-African brotherhood and unity further symbolizes the bond between Nigeria and South Africa, regardless of the supposed rifts and contention between citizens of the two nations in recent times.

2baba was accompanied by four campari distributors who were excited to be in South Africa with their favourite artiste.
Last year, Campari took 2baba along with some of their distributors on an all-expense paid trip to Milan and visited the home of the contemporary bitters liqueur brand.
