The management of Nigerian music star, Innocent Idibia, aka 2Baba, has described as mere rumour the report that the singer is expecting a baby from another woman.
Many had insinuated that the singer had impregnated another woman after he made a post on social media apologising to his wife, Annie for ‘messing up’ and embarrassing her, according to the Punch newspaper.
In the post that went viral on the internet, 2Baba wrote in part, “This is no stunt. I am sorry for all the embarrassment I’ve caused my wife, my kids, my mother and all our families, and my management team. I am not looking for sympathy. I am not trying to make myself look good. This is no reverse psychology…”
However, in a statement sent to Sunday Scoop, the singer’s management insisted that there was no hidden meaning in the post. The statement read, “It is understandable for fans, friends and concerned members of the public to get curious and seek to know why 2baba posted an apology to his wife, family and management a few days ago.
“We will like to put it on record that the ‘why’ is exactly what was explicitly spelt out in the same post— the pressure of almost a quarter of century of superstardom and a wish to focus on making music without the burden of high expectations of a role model.
“Reports of him getting anyone pregnant are totally false and malicious and we urge well-meaning media platforms and members of the public to completely disregard such. It is fake news.
“Many will recall that this fictitious banker character has been repeatedly getting ‘e-pregnant’ for 2Baba every two or three years since 2014. There is no iota of truth in the allegation.”
