What 2Baba Idibia’s concert in Berlin proves

It was the evening of Sunday, 1 September in one of Berlin’s most prestigious event locations.


The hall of Columbia Theater was filled to capacity with happy people – Africans, Germans and others, who had gathered to see the Afrobeat’s legend 2Baba Idibia (aka 2Face Idibia) perform live.

What marked the concert, dubbed 2FACE #20YearsAKing of Afrobeats Live, apart from shows of that nature was that it was like a huge party, where everybody came to have fund and indeed danced almost ceaselessly from the beginning to the end of the show.

The supporting performances, which went on for several hours, were of such a high quality that at a point rumours started circulating that 2Baba would not perform as the pre-headline artists put up a show that nearly made the crowd forget that they had gathered to see the Nigerian superstar.

It’s beautiful music all through, powered by DJ Bongo Bongo and danced to enthusiastically by the crowd that you would begin to wonder what 2Baba, 43, could still do better! Precisely this feeling led to whispers making the rounds that perhaps 2Baba would not show up hence Kings and Friends Promotion had taken the trouble to assemble such a quality collection of supporting artists including live band performers.

Other promoters in the African community have their work cut out for them – to match what Kings and Friends Promotion delivered on Sunday in Berlin. A huge challenge indeed!
