I thought I wouldn’t get married, I later changed my mind – 2Baba

The popular Nigerian singer, Innocent Ujah Idibia, addressed as 2baba has said he once has the thought that he may not get married again.

The singer made this revelation in an interview, where he revealed the difficultly of being a public figure.

The 47 year old said he’s made impacts on the marriage and his wife, Annie Idibia.

He said one has to be careful about those one meets, because one may not know their motive.

He said, “Most times you don’t have the ability to know somebody that genuinely cares about you, apart from the people you knew right from the time you started, when there was nothing.

”As a celebrity, most of the people I meet are those who I know through my celebrity status. So, you have to be careful because you don’t know the motive people have against you.

“Sometimes people see me and make nasty comments. I would just turn around and ignore it. Many times, people forget that being a celebrity doesn’t mean you are not human.

“Sometimes, I might just be in a bad mood and I’m probably at an airport. I might just want to walk straight into my flight quietly and people would be calling me for photograph.

“And, if I fail to do that and keep walking, they will tell me to go to hell; after all, my music is not good enough. On many occasions, some (Area) boys would ask,‘Tubaba, is there anything for the boys’ and if I give them N1,000, they’ll say ‘Tubaba, you are bigger than that’. There are also other funny comments that I try to ignore.

He said ever since he got married, he’s changed as he no longer stays late outside at night.

He said he has reduced the rate at which he goes to party as he used to do.

The Nigerian music legend said he didn’t initially wanted to get married but later changed his mind.

“To be frank, I was thinking that I would not marry. There was a time I said that I was not going to get married; but once the thought came, I decided to marry the woman who has been there for me when I had nothing,” he said.

“And oh, I am happier than before. At least, I am more responsible now. When I was a bachelor, I could go out and come back anytime I wanted. But now, I cannot do that again.”

“Now, once I am done with the day’s work, I have to go back home to my wife and kids. And then, the way I party before has reduced because I am married and getting older as well. Now as a married man, I have a sense of responsibility. I now know that I need to consult my wife before doing certain things, unlike before,” he added.
