Success in any chosen career mostly depends on one’s ability to make adequate use of every opportunity that presents itself. So is the case of Nigerian singer, Uchenna Ikechukwu Okpala, aka Ikon-X, who shares a striking resemblance with award winning pop star, 2face Idibia.
According to the fast rising singer, Ikon-X, sharing physical cum characteristic attributes with the ‘African Queen’ crooner has been of immense benefits to his budding music career. Ikon-X who is signed to AZ Entertainment with a couple of singles to his credit, has displayed his musical talent and versatility in RnB, reggae, commercial, and pop tunes, earning him a comfortable spot among his peers in the music industry.
Besides sharing physical attributes with 2face, he claims to have a number of other qualities idiosyncratic of him and boasts of how it has been of benefit to him so far.
“Sharing physical and other qualities with 2baba has brought me good things because when I go to shows some, people think I’m 2baba until I tell them I’m not him, but it makes them still want to be closer to me”, he said.
