2Baba isn’t just a name in Nigerian music; it’s a legend. For over 20 years, his talent has turned heads, and his music has moved hearts. He’s written countless amazing songs, sung them with superstar vocals, and even changed the sound of Afrobeats forever.
Remember all those smooth R&B jams that defined an era? 2Baba was behind them. Think of those catchy pop hits that crossed borders and laid the groundwork for Afropop. Same guy! He even dabbled in hip-hop, showing off his incredible ability to adapt to music. And, of course, who can forget the party anthems that made everyone dance? 2Baba is the king of those too!
Now, while we wait for his next album (which he hinted at earlier this year), let’s celebrate 30 of his most unforgettable hits. From classics that brought back memories to hidden gems you might have missed, this list is a reminder of why 2Baba is a true icon and a giant in the world of Nigerian music.
So dive in, rediscover old favourites, and maybe even find some new ones. This is a journey through the musical magic of 2Baba, an artist who’s not just talented; he’s legendary.
2Baba’s “African Queen” wasn’t just a song; it was a moment. When MTV Base launched in Africa in 2005, this song blasted onto the screen, marking the start of a new era. It wasn’t just catchy; it was beautiful, earning 2Baba international fame and making him Africa’s top music star.
Think of it this way: if you wanted to capture the magic of African music in one song, “African Queen” would be it. It gave 2Baba a crown, and it gave Africa a voice on the world stage.
Remember that catchy tune that was everywhere that year? It’s this song, a standout track on 2Baba’s international “Unstoppable” album.
It became a national anthem, solidifying his place as one of Afrobeats’ biggest hitmakers.
