Nigeria’s finest and arguably the number one artiste in African urban contemporary music, 2Face Idibia, is set to drop the first single off his sixth studio album ‘The Ascension’. The single ‘Let Somebody Love You’ was recorded and produced by 2Face’s producer Femi ‘Femdouble’ Ojetunde and features Rocnation artiste, American singer Bridget Kelly. According to the multiple-award winner, “the idea for the song comes from people who act like they can do without the love and support of other people.
The truth, whether we accept it or not, is that everybody needs somebody.” The duo performed the single for the first time at the Makurdi Rocks date of the Star Trek concert series to a wild and appreciative audience earlier this year. “This song is all about giving room for more love”, 2Face says. “Like a diamond in the rough, we need to let our light shine through.
The healthiest way to do that is by loving and being loved”, he adds, borrowing a line from the second verse of the single. 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. Fifteen 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.
