In the newly released published 2Face Idibia biography, A very good Bad Guy, his wife, Annie Idibia, narrates the story of how they met when she was just 15.
The book’s launch, which was at Terra Kulture in Victoria Island, Lagos on 20th October, was attended by top industry players including Tiwa Savage and Ali Baba, who did the book review.
In the book, the couple proves that love at first sight is not a myth.
Annie narrates: “The moment our eyes met at Even Ezra Studios many years ago, I knew you were the one for me and I for you.”
“Innocent is an extraordinary being. It really seems like yesterday, (I can’t believe he is 40 already) he was 24 and I was 15,” she adds.
“And I still see the same man when I look at him. So full of life, so much energy. He is always optimistic about life. He is never afraid of the next day with the little or nothing he had…” she intimates.
“He always says… ‘Baby you worry too much. Just believe, believe’. I remember many evenings he would walk me from 201 in FESTAC to the major road outside Festac, the road was so wide and scary to cross that he would have to hold my hands and we would run across the road together!” She continues to narrate.
“Once I got in the bus going to CMS he would wait till it was full and wave at me till the bus was out of his sight. His smile while waving is still very fresh in my memory, Baby do you remember those evenings?”
However, the couple’s journey has not been a walk in the park based on their on and off relationship.
The challenges are in fact plenty for the two, with 2Face Idibia’s out of wedlock children with two different women and the strain of their individual working schedules; Idibia as a musician and Annie as a fast growing actress.
The two have overcome the challenges and have chosen to remain united since their wedding in March 2013.
Recently, Annie shaved her hair to create awareness for breast cancer in October.
She posted a picture of her shaved head and without make up, saying that cancer was not a respecter of persons.
She urged women to perform self breast examinations saying it could save many lives.
