When in February 14, 2012, celebrated singer, Innocent Idibia, well known as 2Face Idibia, proposed to his then long time girlfriend, Annie Macaulay, many thought he was in for a big trouble. This was because at the time he begged the up and coming actress, Annie, for her hand in marriage, one of his babymamas, Pero Adeniyi, was actually pregnant for the multiple award winning artiste.
The debate on if 2Face would be able stage a glamorous wedding with Annie started and many people started giving their different views on the choice of 2Face picking one of his babymamas, Annie, as wife.
Some thought 2Face should not have chosen any of his babymamas as wife to balance the equation, but some felt Annie was worth the pick because she had been with the Idoma, Benue State-born singer for a long time when he was a nobody, while others felt Pero, who was then expecting the third child for 2Face, would have been the best choice for him.
Those who love the third known babymama, Sunmbo Ajaba, said she should have been Mrs Idibia and not Annie. But all these are now past tense as even Sunmbo has now tied the knot with her pastor, which was done this week Monday.
Speaking recently about one of his greatest fears when the issue of his highly publicized wedding in March and April was on, 2Face disclosed that he nursed the fear that the wedding would be disrupted. Though he didn’t specifically state by who, but it is believed that 2Face might have feared any of his babymamas would oppose his decision to dump them for a ‘colleague’ with the least number of child outside wedlock for him; Annie with one, Sunmbo with two and Pero with three.
“My biggest concern was that this was a serious occasion (the wedding) for me and I hope nobody is going to come and trivialise it and try to turn it into a bad thing, you understand,” 2Face revealed.
“Marriage is a joyous thing but some people could turn it into topic of the day that people will then insult you saying different things. That was my biggest concern, for people to just respect it and know it’s a serious occasion for me and my wife, and not turn it into any debate society topic.”
