Former Chelsea midfielder and Super Eagles captain, John Mikel Obi, has finally talked about his fight with veteran singer Innocent Idibia professionally known as 2Baba.
Recall that news surfaced the internet some years back that Mikel Obi while playing with premier league club, Chelsea FC snubbed legendary Nigerian singer, 2Baba, when they met at a nightclub.
The news becomes one of the trending conversations online then and by extension many claimed that 2Baba’s hit song “Only Me” was a diss track aimed toward John Obi Mikel.
However, Mikel Obi, a father of two who announced his retirement from professional football on September 27, 2022 for the first time speaks on his fight with 2Baba.
Sharing a video of himself vibing to a song via his verified Instagram page on Sunday July 31st, 2023, Mikel wrote;
“When the music hits hard and you can’t get enough 🤩 Have a good Sunday my people.”
Taking to the comment section, a curious fan identified as xfranky22 asked the ex-football star if he truly snubbed 2Baba at a club in London.
He wrote; “Did you truly snubbed 2face on a club in London back in 06 ?”
Reacting, Mikel said he never snubbed 2Baba while adding that he is a big fan of the singer.
Mikel said; “no I never did. Am a big fan of his. So I wouldn’t do such a thing 😁 have a lovely day.”
