Innocent ‘2Baba’ Idibia speaks on alleged rift with Chelsea midfielder, John Mikel Obi
Few years ago, rumours emerged that Super Eagles star, John Mikel Obi snubbed Nigerian music icon, Innocent ‘2Baba’ Idibia at a London nightclub.
Many believed and went ahead to opine that this incident was what prompted the singer to record the hit track Only Me .
Several years down the line, 2Baba, in a recent interview with Brila FM, quashed the rumours of such an incident ever taking place and insisted that the song was never a diss track nor about Mikel.
“I met John Obi Mikel for the first time at the MOBO awards two years before I released the song ‘Only me’, I won an award on the night, Mikel congratulated me and alongside P Square, D’Banj and Don Jazzy we all went to hang out together,” the one time MTV EMA winner told the sports radio station.
2Baba also revealed that when he heard about the rumours at that time, he put a call through to the midfield maestro and they ended up having a laugh over the rumours.
He said: “At the time I did the song, Mikel had issues with his inability to show up for certain Super Eagles games, then some very good rumour monger picked a line from my song as regards patriotism towards representing the National football team and ran with the story of a rift between us, I spoke with Mikel on the phone and we had a good laugh about it.”
