Sunday December 9th 2012 will be remembered by all who were opportune to attend the end of the year party hosted by 2Face Idibia. The event, tagged the Playas’ Ball, and was an exclusive affair, was held at Auto Lounge in VI and was produced by Hypertek Entertainment in conjunction with NM En.Core and was supported by Soundcity.
The event was engineered to provide the artiste with a platform by which he could show gratitude and
appreciation to everyone who played a part in making the 2Face brand successful in the year 2012.
More importantly however, he was able to highlight his plans for the next year 2013 while taking time to
interact with people with the intent of fostering a relationship that would ensure continued association
and cooperation in the future.
The red carpet began by 7.00pm and had in attendance some of the industry’s bigwigs including; Ayo
Animashaun of Hip Hop World, Freeze of Cool FM, Genie of Smooth FM and Olisa Adibua of The Beat.
Other attendees at the event include artistes such as Sound Sultan, Modenine, Wande Coal, 9ice,
Dammy Krane, Shank and Faze. Also in attendance were representatives of various advertising and
The year 2012 has been a memorable one for the artiste as he attained a number of milestones amongst
which are the release of his 5th studio album ‘Away and Beyond’ which was released to critical acclaim;
the nationwide Buckwyld and Breathless concert tour which broke new grounds this year holding in Port
Harcourt and Abuja and the United States of Africa US tour. 2012 was also the year that 2Face tied the
proverbial knot with his longtime sweetheart Annie Macaulay.
Without any doubt the most accomplished artiste of his generation, 2Face Idibia put out his first
recording Body & Soul as a member of the trio Plantashun Boiz in 1999. Thirteen years later, having
gone through more ups and downs to panic even a seasoned stockbroker, the artiste has emerged a
newer, stronger brand winning several awards for all of his past releases. This year, he added another
album to his catalogue. The album is titled ‘Away and Beyond’.
‘Away and Beyond’ is available in CD stores nationwide and also on iTunes online music store.
