Talented and award winning Nigerian music legend Innocent Idibia, popularly known as 2baba has come out to state the greatest regret he has made in his entire life.
In an interview with Punch, 2baba revealed that although he feels fulfilled being a music star, a husband and a father to all his children but he still wishes that all his seven children came from one woman. When asked about all the women in his life, he said:
“It is really tough to talk about it. Honestly, when I look back and examine that aspect of my life, I wish it never happened. I wish all my kids came from one woman. I love my children and there is nothing I can do to change the situation. I have moved on and I am married to one of the women who bore me kids. I no longer dwell on that issue.”
Addressing the kind of relationship he shares with his children, the music icon revealed that he is not in any way a strict father as he leaves all the discipline of the children to their mothers.
2baba said: “I am not the strict type because I have a soft spot for kids. As such, my children always get away with so many things when I am around. Their mothers are the ones who discipline them. I pamper my kids.”
Speaking on the many challenges in his career and advising up-coming artistes, 2baba disclosed that going into music full time is a serious business but they should challenge themselves creatively and be able to explore all other avenues.
He said: “I just want them to know that going into music is serious business. More so, they should challenge themselves creatively and be able to explore all avenues. They must not be held back by any challenges that may come their way. When they combine all of these together, the road would be easy. On my part, I am just going to keep doing good music and keep bonding with my family. For me, I am just doing my own thing so I am not in competition with anyone. I am on my own lane and wouldn’t have it any other way.”
