VIDEO: 2baba ‘Resurrects’ Music Icon, Bongos Ikwue On Classic Tune ‘Searching’

Music icons, Innocent Ujah Idibia, popularly known as 2baba and Bongos Ikwue are in search of true love with the release of a latest joint.

2baba, who is the owner of Hypertek music decided to bring one of the great music oldies, legendary Bongos Ikwue for the release of a new classic tune titled “Searching“.

2baba, who is generally considered as Nigeria’s greatest pop act of all time is credited with being one of the key figures in the rise to global prominence of what has been described as the sound of 21st century Africa.

The music legend, who is reckoned with having a fusion or blend of reggae, R&B and traditional African musical influences creates a vibe that is contemporary and universal while maintaining a clear African identity.

Born into the Idoma tribe of Benue State, same as 2baba, Bongos Ikwue has such a voice that has character and can command any song.

It may not be wrong to allude that Ikwue was almost a musical genre in his own right. With real music that always had something to say, his songs were born out of struggle that charged and moved forward the whole time so that people can be in-tune with reality.

His songs were the cornerstones of what he had done and still doing for the betterment of mankind and society.

The “Amen” crooner records are virtual diary of all the important statement that reflected his believe. He did not just talk moral, he lived it and this galvanized his fans.

Like many of the greats, Ikwue took up singing as a young child. He added unusual style and sophistication in his kind of music. His sound is dense with lyrics that almost impenetrable. Many love him for his soulful, folksy songs, the most popular of which includes: Cockcrow At Dawn, Still Searching, Amen, Otachikpokpo and a host of others.

Now, after several years of absence from the music scene, the legend is back, and like fine wine, he has only gotten better with time.

2Baba who knows how to connect with great music Icons (with Dr Victor Olaiya’s Baby Mi Da as testament) linked up with Bongos Ikwue and created magic on this new record titled “Searching“.
