Music star 2Baba becomes the first-ever Nigerian UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador

World-renowned Nigerian singer 2Baba has been appointed as a UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador.

For the past three years, 2Baba has been a committed High-Level Supporter of UNHCR’s LuQuLuQu campaign, a pan-African movement of people from all walks of life investing in a better future for forcibly displaced people across the continent.


In this role, he has dedicated his time to uplift the narrative of refugees and internally displaced persons (IDP) in Africa. In 2017, 2Baba visited IDP camps in north-eastern Nigeria’s Borno state.


As an Afropop music legend, 2Baba has given his voice to refugee and IDP causes. In 2017 he wrote and recorded, Hold My Hand, a song dedication to internally displaced persons, which helped raise funds for UNHCR’s humanitarian response. He has also generously contributed personal funds to support refugee and IDP families in Africa, while continuing to use his celebrity status to raise awareness and support for UNHCR’s work.

“These families shared heart-breaking stories of watching loved ones being kidnapped or killed, forced to flee the comfort of their homes and leave everything they knew behind. I saw how they struggled to access basic things that we take for granted – like food, water, education and healthcare,” said 2Baba.


He added, “I witnessed UNHCR’s work firsthand during my visits and commend the organization for being on the frontlines, providing emergency relief and support to forcibly displaced families. I believe in this organization and I’m proud to be associated with UNHCR.”


2Baba whose real name is Innocent Idibia is the first Nigerian to be appointed as a UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador.
