2Face & Annie Idibia have one of the greatest love stories in the Nigerian entertainment circles. They were together way before he became super famous and after a couple of relationship hurdles which famously included other girlfriends, baby mamas and goodness knows what else. The two of them found their way back to each other, tying the knot in 2012.

In a new interview with SoundCity, 2Face spoke about why he went back to Annie, how her love helped shape him and how it reflects on him as a person.

On why he went back to Annie,

Every reason. I was just deceiving myself that…you know as man dey do sometimes. He go see wetin actually dey down but he go feel say make I see whether…you know all that kind nonsense behaviour. But at one point in time, I was like look I’m not going to let this girl go.

I just started realizing that this is who I want to be with. This is actually who I want to spend the rest of my life with.

This is the person that actually does it for me. So there is no need to deceive myself anymore. I come beg, them come gree.

On how his love changed her,

It [love] made me a more mature and better person. It made me understand that you know that there is so many things you have to work out together with people that you care about, It’s not all bed of roses all the time, it’s not all smooth.

There are sometimes that you disagree to agree and all that kind of stuff, but you just have to [be] mature enough to work through these things. These things will come, challenges will come. You just have to put heads together and work through them.
