Nigerian actress, Annie Idibia, and the wife of legendary Nigerian singer, Innocent Idibia, popularly known as 2face, on Saturday recalled how her husband featured her in the video of his hit song, ‘African Queen’ 19 years ago.

She noted that she was a struggling model when her then-boyfriend asked her to feature in the video of a song that “would change the entire music scene in Africa.”

The smashing hit song, African Queen, was sung by 2Baba and released under Kennis Music in 2004. Ever since the release of the song, it has earned the singer and the record company numerous awards.

The actress said this while referring to a recent song, Smile, where her husband again featured her in its video.

Annie took to her Instagram page to reveal that she was struggling as a model when 2Baba, then called 2face, asked her to feature in his song, African Queen.

2Baba had released his hit song, African Queen, in 2004, shortly after his breakout from the all boys band, Plantashun Boiz.

Reflecting on that moment, Annie noted that she and her then-boyfriend, 2face, didn’t know the song would “change the entire music scene in Africa”.

The actress, who had two children for the singer, wrote, “19 years ago, while still struggling to find my feet in the modeling industry, my then-boyfriend who just broke from a boy band group called me to star in his new song (African Queen).

“We both had no idea the song would change the entire music scene in Africa and it’s narrative and also become the biggest song out of the continent.

“Fast forward to 19 years later and almost 10 years married to that amazing rare human artist, we get to do this again! It’s #SmileSeason Guys!”

Wondering if she had mixed up the dates, she added, “I hope I got the entire math correct.”

Annie, in 2013, married 2Baba, who had other five children from two other women.

In September 2021, their marriage was shaken as Annie accused her husband of hanging out with one of his baby mama of three, Pero, outside the country.
