Afro-pop music legend, Innocent Idibia, a.k.a 2Face, now fondly called ‘2Baba’, has shared his dissatisfaction with how Africans value themselves and their heritage.
According to the ‘Gaga Shuffle’ crooner, it is high time Africans began to place high value on their race because they have been living a fake life for many years.
“Who are we? What’s our true history? What has made us not to believe in our own things? Why do we think black is not beautiful? Why don’t we value African things unless it’s validated by non-Africans? Is what we practice our true religion?
We need to un-wash the brainwashed Africa. It’s never too late to start; we need a serious repackaging of our educational system in Africa; a massive re-orientation of our mindset, our values, religion, history, reward/award system. Blaming and all that has to stop. How do we move forward? Solutions”, he said.
However, after coming under serious attacks for sharing his thoughts, he noted that in 2019, he would hardly have time for anything or anyone that would want to pose as bad energy to him.
He said; “No time for bad energy this year, no time for anybody that wants to claim they are holy on top of my pain. If I say something that you are uncomfortable with please kindly say yours that you feel is correct. Life is too simple like that.”
