Nigerian legend Innocent Idibia popularly called 2Baba shared some of his daily thoughts with the world through his Twitter page. He created a thread about his opinion on racism and Africa. He wondered why other racists are racist to black people first, before other races and attributed the reaction to fear, instead of hate.
He shared these midnight musings at a time when many had retired for the day with the hashtag Unwash the brainwash.

‘Everyday I sit and wonder Why every other race is racist to black people first before any other. What is the reason behind this? I don't think it is hate. I think it is fear of us realising ourselves.
France na French country, England na English country, Italy na Italian country,Spain na Spanish country, Nothing like tribe. Why Hausa no get hausa country, Biafra as ibo country, yoruba country, fulani country and so on. Time to face some hard truths africa. AU !! wakeup pls!'

'All of them na Europe therefore European Union. Dem get the same agenda when it comes to Africa.Them gat each other back. Na only African Union dey sell out. All of dem na to exploit Africa. Don't get it twisted'.

He mentioned that he was not calling for riots or separation in the country, but needed citizens to understand the impact of the colonial masters arrangement in the country. According to him, it was intended by them to create misunderstandings amongst us, through religion and language.
‘This is not an endorsement of nigerian separation or quarrel. This is for us as nigerians and Africans to understand the actual and intentional joining of us to create this misunderstanding among ourselves. From both religion and foreign language angle. Colonial arrangement.'

'Every race common goal na to exploit Africa. None get genuine love or interest in our well being as a continent. It is a simple case of predator or prey. Don't get it twisted’
When I say Africa is the major feeder of the world I beg anybody to prove me wrong. I go accept if I see am’.

The musician bemoaned the state of leadership in the country, and tagged both the media and leadership as copy and paste.
‘We can't keep deceiving ourselves in Africa. Only us can help us. The rest of the world always dictates who our enemies should be. We only believe what their press tells us even if the truth is right in front of us. Majority of our media and leadership is just copy and paste’.

'Pls this is just my thoughts. If u think otherwise feel free to express your own thoughts. Na so we go take align. Nobody sabi every  #UNWASHTHEBRAINWASH’.

2Baba has been vocal about the development of the continent and its people since he became a public figure. Through his music, he has preached love and unity. He was involved in the EndSars Protest of 2020.

Apart from being a singer, 2Baba represents the country as a goodwill ambassador for the UNHCR- United Nations High Commission For Refugees.
