Is 2face Idibia's New Video A Slap On Naija's Face?

Guys, I wonder if anyone has seen 2face Idibia's new video for the song: If Love is a crime. I'm still in shock at that dude's shameless attempt to deface Naija, by not only shooting the vid in small neighbouring Ghana, but his complete adoption of the Ghanaian colours and all. Our dear 2face, whom so many Nigerians had supported with their sweat and blood, totally dumped Nigeria for a Ghanaian personality. Now, don't me wrong. there's absolutely nothing wrong with shootin' vids in foreign lands, but did he have to wear (for the whole duration of the vid) clothes with 'Ghana' boldly inscribed on every space? Is the dude hating on good, ole Naija? And to listen to those mo'fkas, KK and D1, trying to explain that away by describing the video (or is it 2baba) as 'going international.' Can he ever be more international than, say Akon, who still reps Senegal to the max, even in the US? Help me out.

shooting one video in another country is not bad, but the continuity is what is affecting us, (remember nfena ibaga remix). leaving naija out of the picture. and we have a right to question him since

1. we were the one that voted for him on mtv europe awards

2. we voted for him to be the first video on mtv base africa

3. for goodness sake, we bought at least 75% of the double platinum

2face shooting a video in ghana isnt bad, i really love the video, many american have shot video outside america but there is a video that is so wack (true love) that he shot walking thru a forest i can even believe they shot that kind of video for that solid song

2FACE is a cool artist but i wont lie to u, 2face has that video? thats wack. why wld they shoot that kind of video for that drugs song? i saw the maing, i tot it was just going to be a part of the video not knwing i was going to be the entire video.

kennis r just good at marketing and promotion but still have a lot to learn abt video shooting

kennis is the only label doing good or bad , so many label in nigeria and in africa are you doing same

see u ahave a point there -nothing last forever[so they say]

but am sure u will agree with me that 2face has made some achievements that no matter who writes the history of naija entertainment industry, or where this history is written 2faces name would ALWAYS be mentioned.

e,g

whose song was first played on mtv base?

who got naijas first mtv award

who was naijas first artist to have double platinum.

who was the first naija artist to endorse a top alcohol brewing company in naija.

E.T.C

2face has made a name for himself.

those are things that would last forever-no one can go back in time to change it.

yeah,its a shame that naijas are so narrow minded

open ur minds,for god sake,widen ur horizon

he was wearing a ghana shirt so what?,

almost all sportsmen[ i.e entertainers] play club footbal in countries other than theirs

does that make them traitors?

when most presidents pay visits to their counterparts in other countries dnt they at times wear the ceremonial dress of the country?

does that prevent them from being regarded has the no1 citizen of their country

even if 2face made the video in ghana does it make the blood flowing in him less naija than urs.

if hes record label thinks doing the video in ghana would widen 2faces fan base and make them have better sales in ghana and other african countries,

who are u to judge them for that?

"if love is a crime" was made in ghana

BUT

2face innocent idibia was MADE IN NAIJA.[nothing can change that.]

so lets support our own.

Though i aint a 2face lover but i doubt he had any intention of insulting naija by doing that,i think its one of kennis foolish ways of creating a Ghanaian market for the guy,saying 2face is going international by doing that is of a very foolish and childish thinking which of course would be keke's idea.I just dont know why but i think those kennis guys are impeding 2face's progress.

Na wa ooh.

Where there is nothing, people always seem to find something.

Beyonce once sang "nigeria's national anthem", does that make her less american??

If he decides to sing in Ghana, and represent Ghana . .what's wrong in that nah? When he steps up and announces by speech or song, that he's tired of being a nigerian, then we'll have cause for alarm.

Till then, i won't see anything wrong in him singing to the glory of another country, an african country to be precise.

Besides if he had gone to America and sang, wearing NY outfits and stuff, I'm sure you guys won't be here complaining.

@ tosinadeda

A shame you call it?? Could you please in your own words explain to me what exactly is so shameful about it??

the guy is counting his bars both from ghana and nigeria as a major, sm ppl r arguing over nonsense, if u had complained about the low quality of the videos, i'm sure ppl wouldn't have tackled u over the issue, making a video in ghana is just anoyher market strategy,

I support Ghana sometimes. It's not betrayal, it's called 'unity'. For 2face, it's called 'business'.
