Pop superstar 2Face Idibia is set to hit the road for the eagerly anticipated Campus Connect: 2face & Friends Tour 2013 to be staged for the campus communities in 5 tertiary institutions across the country.
Announcing Nigerian’s No.1 premium non-alcoholic brand, low sugar Amstel Malta as lead sponsor, NM En.Core, the tour producers in partnership with Hypertek and Soundcity named UniLag (May 7), UniBen (May 9), UniPort (May 14), IMT Enugu (May 16) and UniAbuja (May 23).
Fresh off his honeymoon, Africa’s finest, 2face Idibia expressed his excitement about the upcoming tour. He states: “I’m looking forward to my return to the campus circuit. It’s been a long time. For mainly timing and availability issues I have been unable to play some of these venues in like 8 years or more so for me, this is big deal. It’s going to be an emotional return to these campuses. I have received and still enjoy massive support from these spots. They are my personal people.”
2baba as he is fondly called is stomping the yard with a line-up of friends that guarantees an unforgettable experience for fans. Hypertek’s hot boys Dammy Krane and Rocksteady alongside Vector, and long-time collaborator Sound Sultan are rearing to go.
Other class acts billed for the tour include Sasha P, Seyi Shey, Timi Dakolo, Phyno, Crystals, Harrisong, Capital F.E.M.I, Solid Star and Jus’ Kiddin’s EFA.
Regional cameos will include crowd pleasers like Christian, Nonny D, Fame, Errigga, Mr. 2Kay, Maxi, Sele Bobo, Tee Gee, Dil, Ameena, Shyne, MC Amanna and Ruff Coin. The gigs will be hosted by the king of kool himself, Andre Blaze.
NM En.Core’s Helen Emoh Abutu, project manager for Campus Connect Tour assured fans of a wonderful time. “We are going on this tour with the support of Amstel Malta and some of the best media, technical, security and logistics support outfits in the game” she says. “The concerts and the exclusive after -parties are bound to remain the talk of the town for long time”.
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. Fourteen 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.
His latest album ‘Away and Beyond’ is available in CD stores nationwide and also on iTunes online music store.
