Nigerian music legend 2Baba has been named a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the UN refugee agency.
UNHCR Nigeria announced the new appointment on social media, praising 2Baba for his great work helping the agency in the past and his passion for the work they do.
“We’re delighted to announce that Afropop music legend @official2baba is our newest Goodwill Ambassador,” a statement from the agency said.
“For the past three years, @official2baba 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.”
The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees is a United Nations agency with the mandate to protect refugees, forcibly displaced communities and stateless people, and assist in their voluntary repatriation, local integration or resettlement to a third country, according to the agency’s Wikipedia page.
2Baba’s huge step up in the world comes at the same time a colleague, DBanj, is facing big issues due to rape allegations.
He recently lost a huge deal with Heritage Bank and more of such lost deals are expected to come.
