I have not stopped making music —2Baba



Music artiste, Innocent Idibia, popularly known as 2Baba, is being rumoured to have turned his back against music but he said there is no iota of truth in the claim. In this interview with SEGUN ADEBAYO, the singer speaks about how his involvement in humanitarian services has kept him busy and how nothing can stop him from making music.


Recently, Grammy Awards added new categories for African music, but some stakeholders believe the body is restricting African artistes. What do you think about this development?It’s commendable and this is a testament that African music has taken global presence and we have become a force to reckon with.  The addition of the Best African Music Performance is a good one and there is still room for a lot of additional categories. I understand people are worried that we will not be able to win in the global category anymore but we should appreciate what we have and work even harder as artistes. They will be forced to reckon with us. Hopefully one day, we would have our award and we would also invite them over to our space.For me, making use of AI will make creative people lazy to write. This could be likened to cheating because you are depending on the computer to make music; it even makes such creative work lose human touch. As far as I am concerned, robots can’t replace the place of music talent and representation. It must be original to last long, and once that’s missing, what you have is no more real. Music is real. It must be real to be appealing to the soul.
