Face 2 Face is a 2004 album by 2face Idibia. It became a major hit (sold up to 2 million copies)[citation needed], initially in Idibia's home country of Nigeria, but quickly spreading through western and southern Africa, and eventually making an impact in Europe as well. Its success owed much to lead radio track "African Queen", a guitar ballad with elements of West African folk music and hip-hop. "Nfana Ibaga" also became a local hit.
