Living Legend: 2Baba Appreciation Post

Published

Talk about Nigeria’s living legends and you will see 2Baba among them. It’s nothing unexpected we are discussing about him, he began as a music pioneer and rose to fame making him a veteran this current day. While a ton of his mates began with him, yet floated en route or wandered into something different with nobody knowing they even existed, this remarkable individual is still easily a recognized name till now.

2Baba’s music from years back still hits and an household name. Innocent Ujah Idibia who had his song played on MTV base for the first time, a platform to sell African music to the world was one of the revolutionary move that metamorphosed Nigerian music to the force it is today. The recognition from MTV music award won by 2Baba was an eye opener and put Nigerian music to on the world map.

Throughout 2Baba’s phenomenal career, he has found real success. From being a successful songwriter, record producer, entrepreneur, to a philanthropist, humanitarian, and activist. He is no doubt an entertainment god and alluding to him as one of Nigerian’s living legend would be absolutely reasonable.

Even in the wake of going for a break years back, did he lay on his paddles subsequently? Obviously not! At the point when his mates were being out of the industry, he returned with a blast! He made perhaps the best rebound. He demonstrated then that he may have being out of the business however his star power was not even close to diminished.

With over 20 years experience in the music industry, 2Baba has managed to outlast 90% of his mates in his generation as he actively competes with the younger ones. His hard work in the music industry has gotten him to where he’s now. We appreciate him and his contribution to the Nigeria music industry.

Meet The First Lady Of Anambra Nonye Soludo, A Blogger & Fitness Enthusiast

Published

on

By

True to its nickname (Light of the Nation), Anambra State is currently radiating brilliant beams of light and bliss. The emergence of a new governor has a way of inspiring people to greater heights of joy. However, there is something more this time as the winner of the just-concluded gubernatorial elections, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, is obviously a darling to the people.

The widespread excitement that accompanied the announcement of Soludo’s victory can be explained through several lenses. Soludo is the second Nigerian state governor to have served as the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria.
Interestingly, some people are far more interested in the profile of the incoming First Lady than they are in the particulars and evolution of Soludo’s career.

For starters, the name of Soludo’s wife is Nonye. She is 51 years old and is an indigene of Aguata LGA of Anambra. She has what might be described as above-average educational qualifications: a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, and a Master’s degree in Accounting and Finance from the University of Westminster, London.

Although Nonye is not as extensively enterprising as her husband, she is far from what the world labels a domestic wife. She is reported to be the CEO of Healthy Living Foods Ltd, the establishment behind the better known Royal Foods. Also, the owner of the popular Blog Nonye’s Healthy Living.

Nonye is also believed to have some respectable stake in the real estate sector. She is the top figure in the privately-owned Charles Frances Properties. Thus, even after bearing six children for Soludo, Nonye is still up and doing— all thanks to being a fitness enthusiast.

One can only say that dragons marry dragons and tigers marry tigers. Soludo and Nonye are obviously a match made in the heavens. Together, they have gone from being the Central Bank family to being the Number One family in Anambra.
