According to information made
available to www.societynowng.com
2Face had made claim to be in position to make a duet with world acclaimed
R&B Singer R.Kelly for a yet to be released album.
Bisi sensing a business

on investment made.

five million naira deal ( the figure incorporated part expenses in making the
album and 2face’s gain)
Findings revealed when 2face
dropped the finish work- there was no R.Kelly duet!
Maintained a source ‘ he did
recorded some a chorus or something that questionably featured R.Kelly but the
main the thing is, he didn’t do what he portrayed and didn’t come up with a
finish product that could help investor to recoup his fund!’

woe the money he released was declared spent already!
According to a source ‘ by a
combination of commission and omission the marketer was forced to accept the
album as produced’

compromise was reached on the understanding that Idibia would come up with
another album to cushion the loss suffered.
The album was titled Unstoppable.
Informants revealed strangely
contrary to expectations Idibia released another album on his own tagged
Unstoppable 11. The musical work is alleged to parade some of the songs in the
controversial album and some new ones.
The initiative resulted in
another round of underground battle with Bisi and Happy Boys.
The underground fight was
reportedly deadlock until Idibia featured in an advert by telecommunication
The marketer was said to have gotten
wind of the money he would be paid ( twenty some thing million naira) and
reportedly threatened to act as kill joy for the singer in the deal by intimating
the management of the company and

refund a yet to be ascertained fee to him to cover his loss.

albums for artiste with the intention of buying it off them.
