2 Face Changes Handle Name

2 face
Nigerian legendary singer,2face Idibia has announced his name is now 2baba.

The name change has been effected on his social media handles,causing him to loose his verification badges for now..

Innocent Ujah Idibia, better known by his former stage name 2face Idibia, is a Nigerian singer-songwriter, record producer and entrepreneur. He is one of the most decorated and successful Afro pop artists in Africa.

Obibini: Here comes the game changer!

Obibini is just fantastic on a track. He has a flawless delivery and punchlines to last him for days. When he features on your song, chances are he will probably steal the show. His fans are eagerly anticipating his debut album and are thrilled by Obibini’s energy and fire whenever he performs. Could 2016 be the year that he blows up and takes his career to the next level? I caught up with him to find out more.

How did you begin your career in music?

Obibini: Music was always my major love when I was growing up. My days in Adisadel College helped in nurturing my skills as a lyricist/rapper. I found myself in a 4-member rap group (Ill Deadly Ministaz) and I’d say we lived the music life, until we graduated and went our separate ways. Thanks to God’s guidance and my consistency in doing music, I’ve been able to gain recognition and respect, and now a lot of people are proud to be a part of the OBIBINI movement.

What are some of the challenges you’ve faced in your career?

Obibini: The music industry is very expensive to indulge in. If you don’t meet the right investors on time, it will feel like you’re throwing the active years of your life away. There are a lot of empty-stomach days during this time. I’ve had a fair share of this experience.

Sometimes, you find yourself as the only person who believes in you. A lot of my colleagues have fallen off, but me, I keep my eyes on the prize. Last but not least, the media seems to concentrate on the same artistes everyday and fail to give some attention to the upcoming acts. It’s an age-old problem, one that will not go away anytime soon. I am well aware of this and I know it’s all part of the package so I face and conquer every challenge that comes my way.

Where do you get your inspiration from?

Obibini: The world I live in is what inspires me. The love, the hate, poor people, rich people, politics, religion and even science. I apply everything I’ve ever learnt as a human being, to my music. Whatever the soul reveals to me, I put it in my songs, provocative or not. I don’t want to have any barriers as far my creativity is concerned.

What are you working on presently?

Obibini: Currently working on releasing my 2nd mixtape album which is going to be hosted by DJ Black again. My 1st official album launch follows in line. With the help of my team, Toontoom/S&L, I’m shooting a lot of videos in between time and putting in work to make sure the brand is on point and then we ‘take over’. It’s going to be a great year, and I plan to make the most of it.

. What do you normally talk about in your music?

Obibini: Normally, my music is hope-restoring. I want my music to be uplifting. I want my music to be there for those who feel lost and left out. As a result, I focus mainly on social issues. I’ve addressed marriage issues, tolerance for each other, bleaching, child deliquency, politics and religion. There are party songs along the line though, and of course, songs to depict my lyrical prowess.

What do you hope to achieve through your career?

Obibini: I want to be known as a musician who was not only successful, but contributed immensely to the betterment of humanity. I admire a Grammy, but I cherish a Nobel Prize more.

With so much competition out there, where would you say your brand fits in?

Obibini: I believe my style of rap represents a new dawn in the music industry. I’ve listened to the cats out there and I can tell there’s a big difference. Honestly, I’m not looking to capture everybody in my net. I only want my own. I say this because people stoop low, or switch styles because they want to be accepted into the mainstream; so bad. That greatly reduces your shelf-life as an artiste. All I know is I’m dope and ever ready to prove myself worthy. My team will take care of the business part.

What advice would you give to upcoming artists reading this?

Obibini: Never give up on your dreams, even if you’re the only one who believes in them. People will always be people, and talk stuff. It’s up to you to prove the unbelievers wrong. And God is everything. Stay focused on your goals and push for the stars. You also need to be original. Don’t copy blindly. It’s important for an artist to be a leader and not a follower. That’s how superstars are made.

What does 2016 hold for you?

Obibini: 2016 is the year I become a household name, not only in Africa, but the rest of the world. My fans would be the happiest, because they’d know they haven’t supported in vain. I’ll honor them with plaques, Insha Allah (laughs). I also look forward to collaborating with the artistes that I respect and letting them have a taste of my venomous ‘spit’. It’s all love. Like Jesus, I came to fulfill and not subtract.

A message to your fans?

Obibini: I know I have core fans and not lukewarm ones. I cherish and respect them a lot because my music isn’t necessarily mainstream yet they love it. I thank them for having the patience to listen to me, and loving me as the end result. I promise nothing but the best. EBINOM KLICK is going to be the envy of mankind. The rap game will never be the same.

Why many marriages are failing today

‘Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife and the two shall be one flesh’ Gen. 2:24.

Oh what a beautiful and glorious moment it is when two people decide to come together and spend the rest of their lives as one. The day they share their vows with one another marks the beginning of a lifetime of commitment; it is the day they change from 'I to We'. It is the day they tell their families and the rest of the world that, they bind themselves to one another forever till death separates them.

At that moment, many married couples probably believed what they were saying, and were also probably sincere about it. So what changes their minds about the, ‘for better, for worse’? Why is it that today, in most marriages; it is ‘for better for stay, for worse for go’?

There are many reasons why many people marry; and due to some of these reasons, their marriages fail.

These are some of the reasons why some people marry:

v Because they are late in marriage: Since they feel like time is passing them by; either it is because all their mates are getting married or they feel that age is not on their side. For this reason, they will marry the first man or woman who shows the slightest interest of settling down with them.

v In need of financial security: One of the most common reasons many young ladies enter into marriage and in some rare cases, some men, is to find stability financially.

v Physical attraction: This is another common factor for marriage.

v Family Pressure: Anything to please mum or dad or extended family members.

These are but to mention a few. But this article is not more about these reasons; but rather about what I believe is the main reason for the failure of many marriages today.

Since marriage is a lifetime commitment, I believe to enter into it, we must be spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and financially prepared.

1. Spiritual Preparation

There is no foundation stronger than Jesus Christ. Any marriage that is not built on Christ is doomed to fail. ‘……all things were by Him; and without Him was not anything made that was made…..’ John 1:3.

Before entering into marriage, you must pray fervently for your partner, because to become one with another is a spiritual bond. If you do not share the same faith, there is bound to be confusion and differences, which might cause the marriage to crash. Because you are one, what affects one, affects the other. The devil will always try to use the weaker to destroy the stronger.

If you are a believer and you enter into marriage without Spiritual preparation, not only will your marriage fail, your relationship with Christ could also be affected. Marrying someone who is not of the same faith can have serious consequences on your relationship with Christ, and I don’t just mean denominational or religious faith. You could both be in the same church and your partner may not be born again.

‘Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labor. If they fall, one will lift up his fellow; but woe to him that is alone when he falls; for he has not another to help him up’. Ecclesiastes 4:9-10.

Without spiritual preparation, you may be one in body but alone in spirit. After all, “can two walk together if they don’t agree?” Amos 3:3

2.Mental Preparation

What kind of mindset are you entering the marriage with? What is your opinion or knowledge about marriage? What is your opinion or knowledge about the opposite sex? Do you view the opposite sex as a necessary evil? Do you view marriage as a necessary rite? Then your marriage is doomed to fail.

To have a successful marriage, you must have a real understanding of marriage; that is, what marriage is truly about. You cannot view marriage in the general terms of what you may have witnessed of other people’s marriage or by your past relationships. You must be willing to have an open mind and also be optimistic and positive about your marriage.

3. Emotional Preparation

If you are over sensitive and overly sentimental, then you are on shaky grounds. You must be emotionally balanced. As human beings, we are fallible; therefore prone to mistakes. Do not enter marriage expecting perfection and smoothness. You must be prepared to work for it. If you are someone who gets hurt easily, then you must be prepared to develop a thick skin and learn to keep your emotions in check.

4. Financial Preparation

No one is asking you to be filthy rich before you get married, but you must have a source of income to be able to provide or support your family. You should at least prepare for the future of your kids and future emergencies.

Without these preparations, you are like a man or woman who goes to the farm without his/her tools. You are also like a student who goes into the exams hall without his/her stationeries. You will yield no results and you will return empty handed.

To have a successful marriage, let us learn to seek the wisdom of God and also be thoroughly prepared. When you rush into something, you crash eventually.

Stay blessed and always remember that Jesus loves you dearly and I do too.
