Recently, multi-talented Benueborn entertainer @McSmartNaija set the social media on fire with his viral “2BABA CAN DO BETTER FOR THE BENUE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY”.
The brilliant piece is a pathetic one..It’s a pity that a state that’s a proud home to the likes of Innocent Ujah Idibia aka 2Baba who singlehandedly brought DMW’s star Peruzzi from the back seat to spotlight can not boost of any of her son except (him -2Face) who is doing well in the industry.
The sorry state of upcoming Benue artistes, brings the biblical question of; “IS THERE NO PROPHET IN ISRAEL” to mind
Is there no star musician from Benue?
Where are the Don Jazzys and Olamides of Benue that will go to the street and bring up raw talents to stardom?
Like Mc Smart smartly said,if 2Baba have picked Meddy or Rapizo or maybe Ikyobo Daniels (EMS) or Cozy for the collabo of his hit track “Amaka” (instead of Peruzzi – a non-Benue who was already being helped by Davido),it would have being a different story by now.
Anyone who is conversant with the Naija music scene will know that prior to 2Baba’s “Amaka” collaboration with Peruzzi,the name Peruzzi was synonymous with a DMW’s backup singer or More or less a song writer. But today,he needs no introduction.
His life was changed forever!
All thanks to Eje’bleje 2Baba Benue First son -Oyi’Idoma (for mouth 😂).
2Baba’s magnanimity sent Port Harcourt First son -The Eze Pitakwaa Duncan Mighty the then collabo sweetheart in Nigeria who was being rushed by both A-list and B-list stars (from Wizkid to Davido to Tiwa Savage to Rekado Banks to Lil Kesh etc) back to the south and made Peruzzi “The New King Of Collabo” in the Nigerian music industry.
And Peruzzi is kinging with collaboration upon collaborations;
From doing “Tatashe” with Percy to “Hangover” with Deekay to “New Wave” with Rolay Bondo to “By Force” with Mr May D the list is endless.
Fast rising Benueborn artiste and Aveko Records signee Slikish even hinted recently on working on a new project titled “Body” with Peruzzi.
Peruzzi is everywhere like MTN!
Not even all Davido’s push could gave him this;
All thanks to the Number 1 Oyi Idoma 2Baba.
(Whereas,his own brothers and sisters; Monica Oga (project Fame winner),Geoffrey Oji (project fame winner),Jon Oga (Uncle Suru – Glo Naija Sing winner & ex BBNiaja housemate),Immaculate Dache,Imelda J,Mark Owi (Idoma Got Talent Season 1 winner),Magnito, etc are there with no help from any quarter).
God help us!
