Annie Macaulay–Idibia will grace our #WomanCrushWednesday article for this week because she is such a role model and a good number of reasons can be stated.
Annie Macaulay–Idibia was born on the 13th of November, 1984, in Ibadan, Oyo State of Nigeria. However, her hometown is Eket in Akwa Ibom State.
She moved to Lagos with her mother after the divorce of her parents. She holds a degree in Computer Science and Theatre Arts after completing undergraduate courses at Lagos State University (LASU) and the University of Lagos (UNILAG) respectively.
She is an actress, model and presenter.
She is the wife of Innocent Idibia who we all know as 2baba or 2face Idibia (in the past) the legendary Nigerian music artist.
She is also the mother of two of his children and a tolerant step-mother who allowed the kids from the Legend’s three other women to live with them in their matrimonial home.
She has been quoted saying that she wished ALL of 2baba’s children were hers (Awww).
That acceptance is coupled with the fact that she married the ‘African Queen’ and ‘Implication‘ crooner after all his ‘away matches’. With their relationship suffering for years and all, she was still forgiving and she came back for that hopeful ‘happily ever after’.
Fan Theory: Listen to 2baba’s ‘Rainbow’ and you will surely know that song was for Annie from a repentant man who wanted to retrace his steps to his first love.

Her acting career came to limelight for her roles in the movies titled ‘Pleasure and Crime’ and ‘Blackberry Babes’.
She was nominated in the “Best Supporting Actress” category at the 2009 Best of Nollywood Awards. She won the 2016 African Entertainment Legend Awards Rising Star category.
