After arriving from their Dubai honeymoon on Friday, music star 2Face Idibia and his wife Annie made their first post wedding appearance at Omawumi’s concert. Although they didn’t pose together for the cameras, they turned heads.

      That original was released in the 70’s, you don’t expect Herbert Udemba (his name by the way) to look like a young man. Nice touch by Omawumi paying homage to a forgotten legend.

      That original was released in the late 50’s, you don’t expect Herbert Udemba (his name by the way) to look like a young man. Nice touch by Omawumi paying homage to a forgotten legend.

      The show was one of the best album launch in Nigeria if not the best, it was very emotional for many people. Omawunmi is a true artist, the show was perfect… so be careful to condemn people’s hardwork.

      I’m sure those who own the real daffodiles soooo want their money back…it’s like owning a real Chanel or birkin bag in Lagos…so laughable it’s not even worth it
