Award winning music star, 2face Idibia has opened up on his grass to grace story on a new series entitled #My Super Star Story.

The international superstar and Nigerian music icon recently sat down for a My Super Star Story session where he spoke about the genesis of his career as a recording artiste.

In the session, Idibia revealed that he dropped out of school to move to Lagos and chase a career in music- and at that time, even money to eat was a problem.

In his words, “There is this thing called ‘Luck’ in life. But luck is not always there. So you don’t have to wait for luck. You have to start building yourself. But don’t ever think that anything good comes easy.”

Moving around in Lagos was only possible by taking molue and danfo buses and sometimes, he would even pretend to be a member of the armed forces to avoid paying the transport fare. On some of these occasions, he would then be thrown off the bus for not having enough transport fare.

This situation persisted until his initial break with defunct boy band Plantashun Boiz. He further described his first album Face2Face as his big breakthrough.
