As part of the partnership between The 2Face Foundation and United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) on Projects in Africa with Focus on IDP Intervention, both organisations have put together a special IDP Fund Raising Event tagged: EARGASM. Eargasm is scheduled to take place on July 22, 2017, at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Abuja.
Eargasm is an evening of classic renditions and pleasant surprises with live showcase of classic tunes by top class vocalists in a premium and intimate setting. The headliners for the event are 2Baba, Waje, Styl Plus and a special appearance by music legend Bongos Ikwue.
This event is the third in a series of well-received concerts, it is a special edition designed to raise funds for The 2face Foundation/UNHCR IDP support initiative. The partnership was formalised on January 30, 2017, to deliver fundraising drives through music/merchandise sale and charity events targeted at corporate and individual donors towards on-going UNHCR’s I.D.P support projects across Nigeria. Eargasm is a Buckwyld Media production, which is packaged in association with Yankee Entertainment. The initiative to drive awareness and raise funds for IDPs is a Boomerang Africa idea for 2Face Foundation.
The 2face Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation founded by pop legend Innocent “2face” Idibia aka 2Baba. The initiative was borne out of 2Baba’s desire to deploy his voice and star power in service to humanity. The 2face Foundation seeks to promote peace in Nigeria and Africa through working with like-minded individuals and organisation with a common goal of peaceful and productive coexistence of all persons irrespective of age, ethnicity, economic status or gender roles.
In staying true to his earlier promise, 2Baba has released a new song to mark World Refugee Day. The song titled ‘Hold My Hand’ is a compassionate call to everyone to show love to one another especially those in need. Leading by example, 2Baba pledges to donate 60% of the proceeds from the song to the IDP cause via the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) toward the humanitarian efforts to help IDPs in Nigeria. 2Baba has made a public call to all Nigerians, to stream and download the song, and also use it as Caller Ring Back Tune, because by doing so, “we will all be doing our bit”, he said.
