Musical artiste and brand ambassador of Haven Homes, Innocent Idibia, better known as 2face, received more honours recently with the naming of a street after him in a high profile Lekki Estate.
The street named after him is in Richmond Gate Estate, which is located after Ikate Elegushi on the Lekki corridor. The Estate is the flagship project of Haven Homes, the connoisseur, developer and promoter of life style homes in Nigeria.
In a statement issued by the firm, its Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Tayo Sonuga disclosed that the main reason behind the honor was under pinned by their principle to celebrate legends when they are still alive, “we need to celebrate our own legends when they are alive and not after they are gone and we shouldn’t place foreign icons above ours. There is no one who will dispute the fact that 2face has done so much to Nigeria and Africa at large through his popular music genre. It is an honor 2face absolutely deserves. We are indeed humbled that it is coming from us”.
The 2Face street naming has been a topical issue on many blogs recently especially on Nairaland where it was first featured. The Nairaland forum with 1,603, 694 members and 2,917,202 topics has been besieged with various reactions to the development with many applauding it as “well deserved” while one ecstatic respondent exclaimed that he even “deserves a stadium!”
In acknowledging the honour, 2Face replied in a simple terse, “I appreciate the honour very much.”
