2face Clears The Air On Rumoured Rift With Mikel Obi

'No be everybody sabi play ball otherwise arise o compatriot if Nigeria call'. That's a line from 2face Idibia's 2010 hit, Only Me.

Many assumed that line was a jibe at Super Eagles player John Mikel Obi who coincidentally had issues with Nigeria's football federation at that time.

Nigerian music legend, 2face Idibia recently visited Brila 88.9FM's studio. He was asked about his relationship with the Chelsea player and he had this to say:

"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 along side P Square, D’Banj and Don Jazzy we all went to hangout together.

“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”

“Mikel is a cool, somewhat quiet person and people misunderstand that for arrogance”.
