2face Idibia’s Concert in Rwanda Was A BIG FLOP

For the first time in over 10 years, Nigeria pop legend, 2face Idibia returned to Rwanda to headline a concert on September 23, 2016 at the Kigali Serena Hotel.




The event was 2face Idibia’s second time in the country after his first visit in 2006 but it wasn’t as memorable as he anticipated.
2face Idibia’s vistit to Rwanda comes on the heels of Wizkid’s sold out concert in the country back in August and P-Square’s sold out gig in 2012.


Rwandans on social media complained bitterly of lack of proper promotion for the concert which led to an all time low of less than 50 attendees.
2face had been brought in to the East African country by Belinda Umurerwa CEO of Kigali Entertainment. Investigations revealed that the concert, which was supposed to start at 6pm, started at 10p.m with almost an empty venue to welcome the singer.

At that time, we gather that only journalists were seen taking pictures of empty seats while the anchor, MC Tino simply told the DJ to keep playing music as they await people to come in.





When it was clear that no one else was turning up for the gig, MC Tino called on stage a couple of local artistes including Jack-B, Gilbert ‘Guitar’ Gabiro to perform.

At aboutt 11:30p.m, 2face took to the stage after long hours of negotiation between his management team and the organisers on whether he should perform or not.
Deciding to perform to the very few fans present, 2face was quoted to have said, ‘Hello Kigali. I know you’re very few but we don’t want to talk about whatever happened. I am going to do a unique show for you who managed to come‘.

He then went on to perform about five songs including ‘True Love’, ‘If Love Is A Crime’, ‘Blind’, and ‘African Queen’ before his manager, Efe Omorogbe gave him a sign to quit the stage.


Rwandans are now blaming the show organisers for the huge flop.
‘I think the timing of the show was not good. 23rd is not a good date because most people are yet to get their salaries. For a show to succeed, you have to put it at the end of the month or at beginning when people have money’, said Gilbert Dukuze, a Rwandan pundit.

He also pointed out that 2face coming a week right after a mega concert in town, by Sauti Sol, was a major undoing, especially considering that some music lovers think that the Nigerian artiste’s best days are behind him.

Lmao,i laugh hard,but 2face should retire now,when he's still loved won't pay my money for such show, 2face time has passed

Efe omorogbe is out to milk tuface dry and then dump him. This guy can't take tuface beyond what Kenny ogungbe did. Nice African queen he hasn't recorded anything remarkable musically. Tuface should dump Efe before Efe dumps him.

Isaacson said...

Haven't you heard of coded tinz he featured phyno nau...not quite long ago

Besmeraldboutique said...

I like the fact he still performed. Some other artists would have refused to perform.

Efe is afraid of exposing tuface to better opportunities. He blocks bigger deals because he feels that might make him irrelevant.

Baby Oku said...

The fact that he still performed says a lot about him. Some artist would have refused to perform. 2baba can never do wrong in my eyes, he's humility weakens me. He's forever still a great man with great personality.

Music isn't static and every musician that wants to actually succeed must learn to evolve a unique style and stick to it. 2 baba made a huge mistake in his career by completely re branding. The kind of music that made him popular didn't stand the test of time and he suddenly became naija Rkelly which is unfortunate. He should just bow out while the ovation is loudest ....The likrs of Davido, Wizkid and Olamide only have a few years to run too because those kind of music cannot stand the test of time and even if they rebrand, its bound to fail...A bankyw, Timi Dakolo, Asa, and Praiz will still be on the scene while Davido and others would have been long forgotten....its better to nurture your career than to go ior popular tunes that will go out of fashion quickly. A sunny Ade is still well respected in Nigeria today because he carved a unique niche for himself and stuck with it.

The organizers did a shitty job!
50 people? DARN!
I respect him for still going ahead to perform.
Apart from African queen, if love is a crime, and impossibility collabo he did with psquare, I don't think there is any other of his songs that I like that much.

Anonymous said...

That's why I will forever love TuFace...TuHumble mehn!

Jus knew he'll still sing & won't evn want 2stop!Sweetest

Komimi Solomon said...

That shows how humble he is jare. No artiste will agree to perform, they will conclude that it is a deliberate act. Kudos to you 2baba

debo said...

Please can you tell me how many people listens to all these artiste you mentioned. For you to last long in the music world you need to be versatile and carry many age group along. Make song for ditterent age grade, don't be stagnant. Many RnB artistes in the us had to make collaboration with nyounger artiste to make their song appeal to young ones . let KSA hold a concert, you'll only see people like me who loves his song

50 revellers or 1million revellers, 2baba will still earn his full pay!

Ohanaka Ifeanyi said...

Poor organization

stephan said...

Take a cue tuface and bowout of the the music world.. blackface will be smilling now.

Ayomide Adenike said...

cool

Amacastel said...

That's not true besides youths prefer going to clubs than live shows so if KSA hold a concert it will be a huge success.

He is a consummate professional, I commend him for his humility and still performing for the paying guests, even though so few. As they always say, the show must go on and he did not let his ego get in the way. In the future his ppl should do better research about the projects they sign him on for.

Babyoku i love you for this talk
