NIGERIAN music superstar 2Baba, has begun preparing for his performance at this year’s African Legends Night which will come off at the Grand Arena Dome of the Accra International Conference Centre on September 28.
The African Queen singer has lined up a number of shows in Nigeria where he is performing to heat himself up before heading to Ghana for the African Legends Night, which is in its eighth year.
2Baba gave a spirited and energetic performance at the recently held One Africa Music Fest in London where he performed some of his popular songs like African Queen, True Love, Ebe Like Say, Amaka among others.
He also performed at the “Alibaba & Friends” comedy show hosted by Veteran Nigerian comedian Alibaba last Sunday, August 25 at Indigo, O2 Arena, London.
According to the Afropop singer, he is getting ready and has promised to give the audience an unforgettable experience.
2Baba will be performing with Awilo Longomba, the Congolese soukous superstar as two of the headliners for this year’s show, according to organisers of the event, Global Media Alliance.
The two will be joined by a team of Ghanaian music greats led by Mr Music Man Kojo Antwi and Ofori Amponsah.
Just like Awilo and Kojo Antwi, 2Baba has won many awards – both local and international from MTV Awards, World Music Awards, Headies Awards, Channel O Music Video Awards to BET Awards.
He was awarded a fellow of the school of music by the Music Department of the Obafemi Awolowo University. This made him the pioneer recipient of the award which was presented to him at the first public lecture and fellowship award held in March this year.
2Baba has quite the following in Ghana and it is expected he will give audience a great music performance.
