Rumors that legendary musician Innocent Idibia alias 2Baba had an extramarital affair have been refuted by Efe Omorogbe, a well-known Nigerian music professional and the singer’s manager.
Throughout the week, rumors circulated that the artist had impregnated a particular banker.
Idibia offered a public apology for embarrassing his wife and family a few days prior to this.
In the statement posted via his Instagram page on Monday, Idibia wrote, “This is no stunt. I’m sorry for all the embarrassment I’ve caused my wife, my kids, my mother and all our families and my management team. I’m not looking for no sympathy I’m not trying to make myself look good. This is no reverse psychology bullshit.
“I simply just don’t want to be the one that always apologise. I’ve been a sh**ty father and a sh**ty husband and sh**ty baby daddy. I have no excuses. I just want to do right by my wife, and my kids and their moms and my mom and all families and my manager and friends.”
The talent agent called the accusations “false news” and urged the public to ignore them in a message posted on Omorogbe’s Instagram account on Saturday.
“It is understandable for fans, friends, and concerned members of public to get curious and seek to know why @official2baba posted an apology to his wife @annieidibia, family and management a few days ago,” the statement read.
“We would like to put it on record that the ‘why’ is exactly what was explicitly spelt out in the same post – the pressure of almost a quarter of century of superstardom, and a wish to focus on making music without the burden of high expectations as a role model.
“Reports of him getting anyone pregnant are totally false and malicious and we urge well meaning media platforms and members of the public to completely disregard such. It is fake news.”
