Recall that 2Baba in his Face 2 Face album sang that people take him for a fool just because he did not finish school in his Ifana Ibagha track.
2Baba dropped out of Institute of Management and Technology, Enugu where he bagged an Ordinary National Diploma in business administration and management. He dropped out because of his love for music.
