The event which took place on Wednesday, March 20, 2019, at the Obafemi Awolowo University saw the singer become the pioneer recipient of the award which was presented to him at the department’s 1st public lecture and fellowship award.



In his response after receiving the award, 2Face Idibia now known as 2baba expressed his heartfelt appreciation to the management of the prestigious institution.



“Being the torch-bearer for the new pop movement is a role I do not take lightly. And I am honored to have been found worthy of such noble albeit enormous responsibility.” He said.



BlackBox Nigeria gathered from a report by Pulse NG that the music icon who has stayed relevant in the Afro-pop scene for 2 decades presented a paper on the topic  “2 decades of Afro-pop in Nigeria: The perspective of 2Baba”.

“Congrats to you sir @official2baba on receiving an academic award today in OAU. May God bless you as you have enriched a lot of Nigerians.


“On behalf of all Corp members we say Congrats.”



This is not the first time 2Face Idibia will be getting special recognition from a higher institution. In 2016, the music icon was honoured at Igbinedion University with his wife, Annie Idibia.



However, BlackBox Nigeria gathered that Corp members serving in the institution recently took to their Twitter handle to congratulate the singer for attaining this feat.



Recall that back in 2016, 2Face Idibia was honoured with a Master of Arts in Music degree from Igbinedion University, Okada. 2Face along with his wife, Annie arrived Benin Kingdom Monday, May 9, 2016, and paid a courtesy visit to the Esama of Benin Kingdom, Sir G.O Igbinedion.
