Senator Florence Ita-Giwa has commended Nigeria’s famous Pop singer, 2Face Idibia, for singing love songs and celebrating women with his music.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Ita-Giwa poured encomiums on Idibia at a musical concert, tagged ‘2Face: Fortyfied at 40′, to mark the singer’s 40th birthday on Sunday.
