- Published: 01 November 2015

Annie Macaulay–Idibia, the wife of legendary African pop star, 2face Innocent Idibia, narrated how she met and fell in love with the singer at the very young and tender age of 15, in the just-released biography of 2face titled 'A Very Good Bad Guy'.

In her tribute, Annie poured glowing remarks on her husband, looking back at the day they first met.

She said: "The moment our eyes met at Even Ezra Studios many years ago, I knew you were the one for me and I for you.

"Innocent is an extraordinary being. It really seems like yesterday, (can't believe he is 40 already) he was 24 and I was 15. And I still see the same man when I look at him. So full of life. So much energy. He is always so optimistic about life. He is never afraid of the next day with the little or nothing he had." 

"He always says… 'Baby you worry too much.. Just believe, believe', I remember many evenings he would walk me from 201 in FESTAC to the major road outside Festac, the road was so wide and scary to cross that he would have to hold my hands and we would run across the road together!. Once I got in the bus going to CMS he would wait till it was full and wave at me till the bus was out of his sight. His smile while waving is still very fresh in my memory, Baby do you remember those evenings?" Annie mused.
