Here are the Reasons why 2Baba is still the king of music in Nigeria

[nextpage title=”Page 1″ ]

The Nigerian music industry is a truly wide and constantly expanding one. We have seen talents come and go, sounds have changed, and our music is one of the few things that keep us united as a people. Music keeps you going, and Nigerian music is a reason to be happy.

When it comes to our musicians, we can only be thankful. We have had our hearts melted with the voices of beautiful talents; we have danced our feet to weakness, to the beat of trendy songs, and through all these things, celebrities have been born.

While every musician has his or her own focus, and has attained his or her own level of success, some have just pushed it to the limits. One of such people is the veteran artiste, Tuface Idibia, who we now call 2Baba. Some of his songs have gone down in history as evergreen songs and somehow, above all odds, he still continues to grow and thrive in the very wide industry.  While we can all agree that he now has a few tough contenders for the throne of Nigeria’s music leader – one of such being Wizkid, here are some reasons 2Baba might just still own the title for now.

  • Consistency

2baba 2face tuface

Nobody can nearly argue this. 2Baba has been consistent beyond words. Since his days as part of the Plantashun Boiz, to his early days in music, this man has been consistent. Think about it – he released the evergreen and multiple award-winning track African Queen as far back as 2004.

A lot of the other artists that were popular back then, have completely faded into oblivion today. Who knows how many new acts in the industry would be able to build this same track record.

  • Content

2baba 2face tuface

Nigerian music of today has been trivialised. We hear the same kinds of songs on a daily basis and it is worsening at an alarming rate. Musicians now only sing about sex, money, alcohol, or even worse things.

But, not 2Baba. Even when he wants to get a little playful with his music, you would not catch him lose track of content. His content is clean, it is wonderful, and only really few artists today can boast of that.

  • Relevance

2baba

How does he remain relevant to the industry after these many years? It is not news that a few musicians that were around when he first started, have tried to gain access back into the industry.

However, it just doesn’t work. Why? Because they are really no longer relevant to the industry. It has grown and they didn’t grow with it. 2Baba still remains relevant and his songs are still making waves till today.

  • He’s Legendary

No matter how much an artist earns more than Fela, he still cannot be seen as better than Fela. This is because Fela was, and would continue to be a Legend – dead or alive. This is how 2Baba is.

History has already marked 2Baba for countless reasons and he is a veteran in the industry for even more reasons. His songs are timeless and they would go down in history as some of the best things to come out of the entire continent.

Natural hair is coming back! Just a few years ago, natural hair was for the churchy girls or the uncool people. However, today, we can see that it is gaining momentum at a very fast pace. Virgin hair, as it is popularly called, is the hair that has basically not been altered. It hasn’t been relaxed or blown and it is usually thick, full, and curly. Since the conventional image of beautiful hair hasn’t been like this, African ladies have spent their time and money trying to tame it and make it look straight and relaxed.

While they typically can be prepared the same way, we’ll focus on Spaghetti. In Nigeria, spaghetti has been used as a full meal, a side dish, and even something you take before an actual meal is ready. As a result of the many ways it is put to use, there are various ways it can be prepared.

Here are just some of them.

  • Plain Spaghetti and Tomato Sauce

Plain Spaghetti and Tomato Sauce 

Plain Spaghetti and sauce or stew, is probably the easiest spaghetti recipe there is. It is the commonest in preparation as it basically takes 10 minutes to prepare. As long as you have the stew or sauce you intend to use for it already prepared, all you have to do is prepare the pasta. To prepare it, you simply have to bring water to a boil in a pot and add the pasta. It is advisable to parboil it, before finally cooking it with salt. Serve with stew or any sauce of your choice.

  • Jollof Spaghetti

Jollof Spaghetti 

While there are probably different names this spaghetti and tomato sauce combo is called, in Nigeria, we call it Jollof Spaghetti. The name stems from the fact that its preparation follows the same pattern as Jollof Rice. Parboil the Spaghetti in a separate pot and keep it. To make the Jollof Spaghetti, fry onions, tomato paste, and blended pepper in olive or vegetable oil until it fries well. Add seasoning, stock, and the meat or fish you intend to put in it. Finally, add the spaghetti and wait for it to cook. This is also fairly easy to prepare and you can jazz it up as much as you want. For example, you could add ginger or nutmeg to add to the taste. This is perfect for a main dish.

  • Tomato and Garlic Pasta

Tomato and Garlic Pasta

Don’t let this name fool you. This meal is also very easy to prepare. After parboiling the pasta till it is al dente, get a separate pot and heat up olive or vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Add onions and garlic and cook until it is crisp-tender, stirring frequently. Mix in diced tomatoes, diced peppers, diced carrots, seasoning, and any other extra ingredient of your choice. Cook it all up then add the pasta and stir. You’ll have a wonderful dish that can be served with wine for a romantic dinner. Try not to use too much garlic so as not to overpower the taste and you’ll love it.

  • Spaghetti Bolognese

Spaghetti Bolognese

Spaghetti Bolognese is a wonderful meal that tastes simply spectacular. Making it is also super easy. All you have to do is cook up your spaghetti using the same process from number (1), and then make the Bolognese sauce. Place a frying pan on fire and add oil. Add garlic (if you want), fry onions, and let it simmer till it’s translucent. Add minced meat (available in supermarkets) and stir till the beef browns up. Pour blended tomatoes into the beef and add the remaining ingredients to season it. You can choose to serve the Bolognese sauce on the pasta or you can mix it.

Friends are very important people in our lives. “Show me your friend and I would tell you who you are”, is a popular quote for many reasons.

2019 : ‘Osinbajo For President’ Group Begins Mobilisation, Seeks Volunteers (Read Details)

Activities for the next presidential election have got a notch higher with the debut of a group that describes itself as “Osinbajo Volunteers”, stating that its mission is for Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to succeed his principal come 2019.

On its website, the group featured the activities of the erstwhile Acting President, asserting that it wants Osinbajo to stand as presidential candidate in the 2019 election.

On Friday, the Kaduna governor, Nasir El-Rufai stated that President Muhammadu Buhari had not disclosed his decision regarding running for second term, but revealed that he and some governors alongside ministers have constituted themselves into ‘Buharist Group’.

He told State House correspondents after a closed-door meeting with the President that their major objective is to ensure that Buhari presents himself for the 2019 election.

Earlier, the Minister of Women Affairs, Aisha Alhassan, while pledging her support to ex-Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, disclosed that Buhari told APC leaders that he was only going to serve for one term.

But in a veiled reference to certain presidents, past and present, who had been described as “clueless”, the Osinbajo Volunteers stated that Nigeria now has a “leader (in Osinbajo) who has a clue on what to do and turn Nigeria the beloved to the land of our dreams”.

While calling on members of the public to volunteer for Osinbajo, the group however made it clear on its website that they are not acting at the behest of the current Vice President.

“Note that Osinbajo did not endorse this volunteer group. We have never met him. We are strong believers in the fact that he is the right ruler for Nigeria and must create a peoples volunteer base for him,” the volunteer group said.

In a Facebook post shared by Ben Victor, the woman narrated that she finds it hard developing feelings for other men due to the love she has for the cousin.

Read the shocking story below:

“It all started when I was still in secondary School, I had an uncle that sexually abused me. When I finished secondary school I had boyfriends but never felt anything for them.

Then I went to stay with my cousin, I became so close to him that we fell in love with each other. I have never loved someone the way I love him.

My cousin is married but I haven’t or can’t still get over him or love someone else. I go out with many guys but feel nothing for them. I will cry anytime I see my cousin and his wife, it hurts me so much to see two of them together. I don’t know what to do.

I have been having s*x with him since I fell for him; he got married last year and his wife is not aware of the feelings we have for each other. He stays in the East while I reside here in Abuja. We met last month and still had s*x. I want to fall in love again, I’m tired of crying, feeling pains and frustrated. Please can u help me?”
