One of Nigeria’s most successful singers of all time, Innocent Idibia, who is better known as 2Baba, has made some revelations about his most famous song, ‘African Queen’.

He says ‘African Queen’, his first single hit, is a source of blessing and a curse.

The 46-year-old hitmaker spoke about the 2004 hit song in the fifth episode of the ‘Journey of The Beats’ documentary which premiered on Showmax last month.

The documentary centres on the history and rise of the Afrobeats genre.

The singer said he regards ‘African Queen’ as a blessing because it’s the track that thrust him into the limelight and earned him awards, international recognition, and accolades.

He also said that the track gave him the “King of R&B” title in Nigeria and became a template for delivering a quintessential Afrobeats song.

According to 2Baba, the hit song would always overshadow his other works in terms of success.
