In an exhilarating performance to formally kick off the musical component of the ongoing Calabar Festival, African Queen Crooner, 2Face Idibia, yesterday wowed the Cross River State governor, Senator Ben Ayade including over thousands of revellers at the popular entertainment hotspot, Cultural Center, Calabar.

Rendering his chart bursting track, “You are my African Queen”, among others, not even the man many have within a short time come to nickname “Digital Governor” could resist the rhythmic allure of the former lead vocalist of the once famous Plantashun Boyz group.

In a mammoth audience that had the deputy governor Professor Ivara Esu, House of Assembly Speaker, John Gaul Lebo, state executive council members, as well as state lawmakers, 2Face literally melted into the ecstatic revellers who thronged the venue to unwind.

Governor Ayade could not resist 2face’s ‘chop knuckle’ as he went into the crowd offering bear hugs, handshake and hi5s to everyone struggling to touch and do a selfie with him.

The performance that lasted three hours also witnessed local acts showcasing their stuff to further animate the gathering.

Resistance was visibly etched on the faces of the crowd who refused to come to terms that the show for the night was over, with shouts of “We want more, we want more, we want more”, Two Baba, please don’t go”, among other chants indicating they did not have enough of him.

The show which continues tonight with other star performers is expected to kick off at the same venue after the cultural band parade early Tuesday.
