I Speak To My Kids Like My Mates 2Baba – Legendary Nigerian musician, Innocent Ujah Idibia, known as 2Baba, has berated Nigerians for being overly concerned about his family. The African Queen crooner admitted that, as much as he pretends to have grown a thick skin to criticism about his family over the years, he still gets hurt some times.
The father of seven lamented that Nigerians who insinuated he is a deadbeat dad to his children have never volunteered to pay the school fees of any of them.
2Baba stated this while appearing in the latest episode of the Afrobeats podcast hosted by British-Nigerian media personality, Adesope Olajide.
He said, “Many people talk about kids, fatherhood, motherhood, all that whole circle. Many people talk about it with public opinion type of thinking. But it’s deeper than that. There’s nobody that has the exact blueprint for this thing.
“The basic truth of the whole matter is the connection with you and your little ones [children]. There is so many different ways to find it. There’s no one rule or one particular way.
“I speak to my kinds like say they be my mates. I don’t boss them around. I talk to them the way I talk to my friends and
“I get a lot of jabs [trolling]. I got a lot of people that say stuff about me. People have trolled me severally on social media. And, sometimes it hurts.
Some times some people will just go on social media to say rubbish. It’s just like terrorists bombing innocent people.
