Legendary singer, Innocent Idibia aka 2baba was 45 few days back, to the joy of his loved ones and fans. 2baba’s long-time partner and wife, Annie Idibia ensured the day did not go unnoticed. The mother of two girls (Olivia and Isabella) put up a surprise birthday party in conjunction with the singers’ baby mamas – Sunmbo Adeoye and Pero Adeniyi. The music star’s wife later showed the revelries on her Instagram, revealing lovely intimate photos of her mother-in-law, kids and step-children. Present at the party were four of the singer’s children.
Annie also shared photos of the superstar, who looked dapper in a black suit and matching beret, while she opted for a sparkling gold dress. A couple of 2Baba’s friends, including his long time business partner and manager, Efe Omoregbe were there to celebrate him. Others also joined the celebration online. According to Annie, she had just 24 hours to plan the surprise party and the outfits for her mum, 2face’s mum and their children. Annie further disclosed how Sunmbo’s event planning company handled and brought the surprise to a perfect reality.

Onlookers were impressed by their display of affection and this was evident in their excited laughter. Annie and 2baba are no doubt one of the celebrities whose relationship had been under scrutiny for a while but they managed to overcome their challenges and remain a strong force seeing as being in the spotlight is not always kind to marriages.
