In appreciation of his support to wage war against cancer, 2face was honoured as one of the Special Philanthropies of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and Goodwill Ambassadors of the BIG WAR against Cancer in Nigeria, along with Lady, Maiden Ibru.
The event was the Banquet of Stars against Cancer (BOSAC) which held at Eko Hotel and Suite where the living legend also performed alongside Sir Emeka Nwokedi, the conductor of the Lagos City Chorale and orchestra of MUSON.
The honoree had to forego the star-studded MAMA held in South Africa, to perform for a cause he believed in as his dad was also diagnosed of cancer.
2face, through his 2face Idibia Reach-Out Foundation, has dedicated a great amount of time, effort and resources towards reaching out to fellow humans in need. “What we do for ourselves dies with us but what we do for others remains immortal,” he posits. He believes also that help is best served quietly. “The Big War Against Cancer is one we all must commit to. The statistics are really scary and the impact is close to home,” he concludes.
BOSAC is a benefit event, of The Committee Encouraging Corporate Philanthropy (CECP-Nigeria), to raise funds in support of the BIG WAR Against Cancer in Nigeria. The BIG WAR Against Cancer aims to take cancer prevention to the grassroots through the use of Mobile Cancer Centres (MCC); each MCC costs N 95 million. Currently over 100,000 Nigerians are diagnosed with cancer and 80,000 die from the disease every year. The Nigerian death ratio of 4 in 5 is the worst in the whole world.
