He said that the change of name would probably not come as a surprise because a lot of people have been calling him ‘2Baba’ for a long time now. He further said that it was only right to officially adopt the name 2Baba as he is now more mature, a “Baba” (father) and also chief (Tafidan Kudandan in Kaduna).

During the interview 2face spoke about the Wizkid, Dammy Krane fight.
