2Baba on experience with Daddy Showkey

In a recent post via his Instastory, 2Baba recounted how Daddy Showkey, whose real name is John Odafe Asiemo, came through for him and his former Platanshun Boiz colleague Blackface in the late 90s.

The African Queen singer disclosed that Daddy Showkey stopped show organisers from treating him and Blackface unfairly.

The celebrated musician wrote:

"1998/1999 I think Ife or Ibadan, it was just me and Black then. I can't recollect the exact event Daddy Showkey stood up for us PBOYS when show organisers were treating us badly based on hotel and balance levos. He didn't even have to but he made sure we were treated properly."
