In Nigeria’s 100-mile-an-hour music industry, it is often easy to forget how long some artistes have been around. Who can believe that 2Face Idibia is 40 already? From his days frolicking onstage at Star Mega Jam with Plantashun Boyz to lifting entire crowds off their feet while headlining Star Music Trek shows in Lagos and Makurdi, 2Face Idibia has come a long way. We’ve had the privilege of watching this unique talent for the last 18 years, and now on the occasion of his 40th birthday, STAR is bringing a bunch of his buddies together for an All-Star tribute concert tagged #Fortyfied.
The concert will feature Star Music Trek performers DJ Jimmy Jatt, Burna Boy, Sound Sultan, Blackface, Seyi Shay, Wande Coal, DJ Neptune, Gbenga Adeyinka and Wizkid in addition to D’Banj, Patoranking, Dammy Krane, Timaya, Gloria Ibru, 9ice, DJ Spinall, Omawumi, DR Victor Olaiya, Vector and many others. Packaged by Hypertek Digital and Buckwyld Media, the concert holding on Sunday 20 September 2015 at the Convention Centre, Eko Hotel, Lagos will be hosted by star comedian Basketmouth.
It will be the chance to finally explore 2Face as an artiste and watch him perform many of his relatively obscure songs which you probably only heard on the Star Music App, in addition to his hefty catalogue of hit songs. Not to mention STAR’s renowned carnival atmoshphere. Now what could be better than an evening of 2Face and the best Nigerian music artistes along with Basketmouth and some Star Radler?
