I Never Thought I Would Marry — 2Baba

According to Nigerian artist, Innocent Ujah Idibia, better known by his stage as 2Baba, he previously entertained the possibility that he might never get married.

This was disclosed by the 47-year-old in a recent interview, where he also talked about the challenges of being famous and how they have affected his marriage to Annie Idibia.

He said, “Most times you don’t have the ability to know somebody that genuinely cares about you, apart from the people you knew right from the time you started when there was nothing.

”As a celebrity, most of the people I meet are those who I know through my celebrity status. So, you have to be careful because you don’t know the motive people have against you.

“Sometimes people see me and make nasty comments. I would just turn around and ignore it. Many times, people forget that being a celebrity doesn’t mean you are not human.

“Sometimes, I might just be in a bad mood and I’m probably at an airport. I might just want to walk straight into my flight quietly and people would be calling me for photographs.

“And, if I fail to do that and keep walking, they will tell me to go to hell; after all, my music is not good enough. On many occasions, some (Area) boys would ask, ‘Tubaba, is there anything for the boys’ and if I give them N1,000, they’ll say ‘Tubaba, you are bigger than that’. There are also other funny comments that I try to ignore.

The father of seven revealed that he had to adjust after being married while talking about his marital life.

He claims that he can no longer stay out late and that he must now return home to his wife and children. He added that he no longer parties as much as he once did.

According to 2Baba, he initially had no interest in getting married but later had a change of heart.

“To be frank, I was thinking that I would not marry. There was a time I said that I was not going to get married; but once the thought came, I decided to marry the woman who has been there for me when I had nothing,” he said.

“And oh, I am happier than before. At least, I am more responsible now. When I was a bachelor, I could go out and come back anytime I wanted. But now, I cannot do that again.”

“Now, once I am done with the day’s work, I have to go back home to my wife and kids. And then, the way I party before has reduced because I am married and getting older as well. Now as a married man, I have a sense of responsibility. I now know that I need to consult my wife before doing certain things, unlike before,” he added.
