Innocent Ujah Idibia better known as 2Face today, Tuesday, September 18 clocks 37. The 8216;African pride8217; was born in Jos, Plateau State in 1975. Little did the Idoma, Benue State artiste know he would be this great when he formed the defunct R&B/hip hop group 8216;Plantashun Boyz8217; with Blackface and Face, who later joined them when they (2Face and Blackface) met Face in Lagos.
2Face attended Mount Saint Gabriel’s Secondary School, Makurdi, Benue State. He then proceeded to the Institute of Management & Technology, Enugu (IMT), where he met Blackface, for a pre-National Diploma course in Business Administration and Management. Unfortunately, 2Face didn’t graduate, but that didn’t stop him from achieving success in his music career.
While at IMT, 2Face did some jingles for GB Fan Club aired on Enugu State Broadcasting Services (ESBS). The name ’2Face’ was coined in 1996. The name came about because he aimed at differentiating his personal life with his business life.
