The fangs of battle are bare- and at the other end is popular singer Innocent Idibia widely known as 2Face.

Findings revealed that the man bent on wrestling with him is Bisi Bangbala, the front person of marketing company HAPPY BOYS.

The chord of discord between the two has root in a business relationship built on deceit- and that has naturally gone sour.

According to information made available to us, 2Face had made claim to be in position to make a duet with world acclaimed R&B Singer R.Kelly for a yet to be released album.

Bisi sensing a business opportunity had entered into negotiation with Idibia using his company Happy Boys.

The idea was for the company to buy the album off 2face and use the R.Kelly angle to market it and earn returns on investment made.

Both parties agreed to a twenty five million naira deal ( the figure incorporated part expenses in making the album and 2face’s gain)

Findings revealed when 2face dropped the finish work- there was no R.Kelly duet!

Maintained a source ‘ he did recorded some a chorus or something that questionably featured R.Kelly but the main the thing is, he didn’t do what he portrayed and didn’t come up with a finish product that could help investor to recoup his fund!’

And to compound the marketer’s woe the money he released was declared spent already!

According to a source ‘ by a combination of commission and omission the marketer was forced to accept the album as produced’

Sources divulged that the compromise was reached on the understanding that Idibia would come up with another album to cushion the loss suffered.

The album was titled Unstoppable.

Informants revealed strangely contrary to expectations Idibia released another album on his own tagged Unstoppable 11. The musical work is alleged to parade some of the songs in the controversial album and some new ones.

The initiative resulted in another round of underground battle with Bisi and Happy Boys.

The underground fight was reportedly deadlock until Idibia featured in an advert by telecommunication company Airtel.

The marketer was said to have gotten wind of the money he would be paid ( twenty some thing million naira) and reportedly threatened to act as kill joy for the singer in the deal by intimating the management of the company and general public of his experience.

Alternatively he wants Idibia to refund a yet to be ascertained fee to him to cover his loss.

Popular artiste manager Efe Omoregbe is listed as topping the list of mediators in the unfolding saga.

Further investigations revealed that since the news started making the rounds, marketers have refused to fund albums for artiste with the intention of buying it off them.
